I’m home today – finally, the permanent glass is getting installed in our door after the firemen broke it (remember that saga?)!

I am glad to be home, because I’ve been craving this tea all week! I am so excited for this afternoon pot. And what a pot! Not only did Doulton gift me with this delicious tea, but she sent along this beautiful Beehouse pot!

How did she know I have blue speckles in my countertop!!!??? :)

Anyway, this milk ‘n sugar classic is so good. Smooth. Strong. Tea with a Capital T! It must be blended really well because it tastes uncomplicated – just the epitome of British style tea. And let’s face it, brewing it in a beautiful little pot instead of a fill your own teabag with a saucer on top of the mug like I usually do at home when I am alone (my other pot is a biggie) makes it taste even better :) :) :)

Doulton is amazing! You will love that teapot. The girls and I each have a small one, plus one to spare. My husband shakes his head at four lined up on the countertop, each with a different tea! But you understand, I am sure. (One daughter doesn’t drink tea – gasp! That is why there are only four pots instead of five!)

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
