I simply adore this tea. It has instantly shot up to my top 10 list :) It kinda reminds me of a love child of Queen Catherine and Emperor’s Red. Just a little smoky. Rich. Roasty. Chocolatey. Sweet. Somehow relaxing and decadent…almost like a glass of port or some other spirit that makes you want to sit back and sigh and ruminate.

I am so glad you like it! It was a HUGE hit here at Tuesday tea a few weeks ago. I will have to keep this one around.

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
