Another very grateful thank you to Doulton for this tea!

(an aside: I am really enjoying Culinary Teas’ thorough descriptions of each tea!)

A perfect, classic cup in the British blend style. Extremely flavorful and full of tea-ness! Rose petals add beauty to the dry leaves, but no discernible flavor. I took this one with milk and sugar for the full English Experience :) I love it! This is another one I would turn to for guests since it’s such a Lipton only a jillion times better profile. I wonder how this would taste iced!?

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
