Another very loved tea…all finished! This one is perfectly spiced and enjoyable no matter if you cook it stovetop with milk, or brew it like regular tea — which is how we had it this evening. The tea base is strong enough to stand up to all that spice (and honey, and milk!) but never bitter. I took a thermos of it to visit my mom, along with a home made cheesecake. Very nice pairing — the creamy cake and the spice are lovely together.

Many thanks to dear Doulton for this one — I enjoyed every sip and I’m sad to see it go.

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
