I wanted a tea that I could drink alllllllll day, and this one came to mind. So nice and sweet. I can’t taste the complexities with my illness, but the sweet potato-ness and gentleness come through. Very soothing and delicious.

I hope you start feeling better soon! My son is abed right now with a terrible sore throat and pounding ears. He never ever misses work or school unless he is terribly sick – he came home with a temp of 103 AFTER Tylenol! Doc says it is viral so we are waiting it out and treating the symptoms…hope yours goes away really soon!

I ate some Lindt Dark Chocolate with a Touch of Sea Salt. I am not sick, however. We’ll go with the story that an ounce (or two) of prevention is worth a pound of cure! :D

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
