Oh, oh, oh, oh what a mistake I made last night! I was freezing and I had the big one of this right before class at 7:30pm last night. I DID NOT SLEEP A WINK! It was a very delicious, citrusy, lavendery mistake, but a mistake none the less! I am going to get something herbal from now on!

I must be the only one who can’t taste the bergamot in this blend. I have tried it in Starbuck’s and at home. Tasted more like an English Breakfast tea to me. Glad you enjoyed it.

Oy, sorry you didn’t sleep! I couldn’t sleep either, and I thought the pain killers following my surgery would knock me right out! Not so! I slept from 5 am to 8 am! Fortunately, Sandy was on Skype in New Zealand to keep me company all that time (it was civil daytime for her!) and we even planned a virtual tea party for today…which we had and it was delightful!

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
