drank Golden Mudan by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I received the most A-MAZING package from Doulton yesterday! You are going to be seeing many, many THANK YOU FOR THIS TEA DOULTON tasting notes in my log in the next few…months! at least months! :)

So, Doulton. Thank you for this tea!!!!

It is tied together in a little bunch, but is not “blooming” – it just gets…plump. It does not scare me. :) It smells great – sweet and tea-y – and it is DELICIOUS. Imagine Golden Monkey with a little extra attitude…and a bottle of honey! I read that one puff makes 6-8 oz of tea, so I was careful not to put too much water in my brewer cup, and was rewarded with an absolute elixir! LOVE that golden mouthfeel.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Doulton!

This is one of our favorites! Very Golden Monkey-ish but a little different. And sold out at the moment…big sigh. Several things in my cart are listed as sold out right now. Can’t wait until I get to click submit order! This one resteeps pretty well. Did you try it?

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
