drank Fellini's Folly by SerendipiTea
1112 tasting notes

Made a nice cup of this after coming in from class late and chilled last night. I had it with a little milk and sugar, and I find it a great caffeine free tea substitute – this one almost tastes like regular tea to me, maybe because the mint gives it so much flavor. I did read that when it was hard and very expensive to get tea, Australians used to prepare rooibos just like black tea. I think I will be an honorary old time Australian some evenings, and take my rooibos like they did!

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
