Thank you to the Amazing Takgoti for this tea :)

Fruity, fruity, fruity! Very smooth and extremely easy to drink. That being said, perhaps it’s a bit too easy. No chewy, no pepper, no little surprises. It’s a good tea which is very drinkable without any additives. The fruit is really nice. But!! I’m not feeling cartwheels and wonderment. I will enjoy every sip in this little tin, but I don’t think I’ll seek it out for purchase after this sample.

I got very consumed in my work, and my second steep brewed for 10 minutes (!!!) and it was still perfectly drinkable if a little (understandably!) bitter. I will add that this is a very forgiving tea :)

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
