Awwwww! This tastes like my birthday! :) As soon as I sipped it, it took me back to the wonderful day where I went to the Talking Teacup and the Mercer Museum in July. I am one of those people who smells or tastes something, and is instantly transported to a memory. I always have to have some of this type of lovely bergamot and vanilla infused rememberance potion to remind of that day full of sunshine, good tea and food, and getting to know the fascinating Henry Mercer from what he has left behind.

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
