Another very much enjoyed tea, all gone! I really enjoyed this slightly tart and green apple-y incarnation of a monkey. It especially reminds me of the summer because I made so much delicious iced tea with it! We are having a strangely warm and sunny January day here on the East Coast, so I thought it appropriate to bid this one adieu as I dream of visiting gardens and having picnics.

This one is sold out! I looked at it in the catalog last night. Here in NC, it is warm but very overcast. I do wish we were having a sunny also!

I think my next monkey is going to be Harney’s! I have 2 coworkers who want to place an order with me. I love being a tea pusher :) :) :)

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
