drank Monk's Mead by SerendipiTea
1112 tasting notes

Back from class – full of delight! I am so excited by the stuff we’re reading this semester – TOO excited – I need to calm down so I can go to sleep! Enter Monk’s Mead! The chamomile is making me feel a leetle calmer, and the apple and mango flavors, accompanied by the squeeze of honey I put in, are soothing and delicious. I am going to try and get to bed now!! :)

I want to see your reading list! I am in withdrawals because the library that is in walking distance from my house is closed for months for renovations – alas! But it is fun to drive downtown to the main library where they have lots more…

If you’d like to PM me your email address, I’ll attach a copy of the syllabus because it’s so lovely – she put all kinds of quotes in it, you can read about the projects we’re doing, etc – I think you’d appreciate it as a teacher as well as a reader :) We have a book list but we also have tons of e-reserves and articles. I’m so excited!!! We already have a short paper due monday! We have to choose a picture book that represents something about our selves, summarize it, and explain what it reveals about us.

Regarding Monday deadline take the advice my son gave me when I was beating my head on the keyboard over meeting word count on a writing project (and he was a very authoritative 6 years old at the time): “Just put in lots of adjectives and adverbs and stuff.”

It dawns on me I’ve probably told that story before. Now, not only do I see my son rolling his eyes for sharing it, I hear him warning me I’m turning into my mother by repeating myself…. (swigging a stiff drink of Ceylon and being quiet now :)

gmathis – it’s advice worth repeating! This is a wee paper so I think my wordy self will have plenty of adjectives and adverbs and stuff for this one :) :) :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
