drank Golden Snail by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I got an A in my class and am feeling happy and silly so I wrote a poem to my tea!

Golden Snail,
You leave a trail,
of chocolate delight.
It’s the very height,
of deliciousness.
I could give you a kiss!
But you are a tea,
And would spill on me.

Preparation

Congrats on the grade and the poem! I have to admit that tea makes me wax poetic at times, too.

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
