drank Monk's Mead by SerendipiTea
1112 tasting notes

A nice sleepy cup with lots of honey. This one isn’t as fresh tasting as it once was, and it’s low on mango and cranberry pieces, but still very enjoyable. I’m one of those people who actually like the taste of chamomile :)

I chose this one partially for relaxation, and partially because I’m still coughing and the honey is soooooo soothing. If anyone has a cough remedy, or even an OTC medicine that always works for you, I’m all ears. I haven’t had a full night of sleep in almost a fortnight (and neither has my husband!).

Dark chocolate, at least 65%, works well for my hubby. He prefers Hershey Special Dark, while youngest daughter prefers Dove Dark. This works for him when prescription codeine cough syrup doesn’t.

Oooh, I like that prescription!

My mother-in-law smears mentholatum on us and ties a bandana around our necks to keep it there…when she can catch us! I must admit it works when the problem is sinus drainage….

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
