drank Berry Melange by Custom
1112 tasting notes

I had a rough week, and boy – something sweet seemed like the most appealing thing in the world this morning. I realized I had this in my cupboard and never tried it! As I say in my description:

I had so many berry tea samples! I decided to combine them for the sake of simplicity. This includes Dammann Freres Paul et Virginie, Harney & Sons Paris, Kusmi St. Petersburg, and probably something I’m forgetting! :)

I am drinking it without milk, and with just a half teaspoon of sugar. WELL, if it isn’t the exact perfect thing for today. The delightful berry flavors, bit of sweetness, and good tea are lifting my mood and making me smile. Sometimes a little froof makes all the difference. :)

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec

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
