I’ve had SUCH a crazy busy week. I know it’s Saturday night, but all I could think about all day was that I wanted to take a looooooong soak in the tub, make myself a cup of this tea, then crawl into bed with the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens!

Well, I just got out of the most relaxing warm bath, and I am happily sipping my tea. It’s so wonderfully TEA- ish. Smooth and flavorful. So nice with a little half and half and sugar. It is also worth noting how beautiful, golden tipped, and long the leaves are. Ahhh – just one of my favorites.

I am thinking about trying my hand at a tea infused vodka, and this will be my first choice for infusing! It’s just so perfectly TEA-y!

OK – I’m ready to join the Pickwickians upstairs! Goodnight!

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
