Three badly written haiku in honor of Tao Tea Leaf’s Phoenix Dan Cong tea:

I
Lovely long brown leaves
Hints of honey and lychee
Soft taste, whisper sweet

II
Fawn tint, floral scent
Mild taste and silky mouthfeel
Some astringency

III
Too mild for my taste
Tasty, but makes me want more
Fascinating cup

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
