Had to call in the Queen! I’ve been having so much trouble focusing since coming back from my little vacation. The Queen needs to put me back in line!!!

So rich. Morning perfection. I think I’m going to jazz up my second steep with a little Rose Congou. I can be bribed to work with roses too :)

Preparation

Let me know if the alchemy works. I have a little of both!

I am a little groggy myself. We just got back from vacay last night. Oh, so much catching up to do. I may have to call in the Queen, too!

All out of the Queen. And reading this on my dashboard is making me need more. Now. Rush delivery.

gmathis – it works beautifully imo!!! Give it a try :) And thank you for the thank you note :) It has a place of honor in my china cupboard card display. Also, I love your handwriting!

I finished my rose congou a long time ago, but at Jacqueline’s suggestion I tried adding a teaspoon of Rose Scented by H&S to the Queen. It is quite good! I especially like it in the afternoon.

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
