I had a serviceable cup of my China Black blend before running to a meeting, with the idea in my head that I would run back to my office afterward and add a teaspoon of Rose Congou leaves to my brewing basket. And horray! I am back and enjoying my lovely, lovely Rose Congou. Sweet but not too, rosy but not too, and what a great tea base. This tea is always a source of delight for me. <3

This is one of my samples from Upton. I have to try it. I only bought it because you said it was your favorite tea….

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
