Boy, is this a delightful summer tea! Even though I’m drinking it hot, and even though it has spice in it, it is so refreshing. It’s that magic lemon verbena!! ♥

Also, have I mentioned how much I love my FORLIFE cup recently!!?!?!? It is so much more convenient to use at work it’s not even funny. I love a convoluted tea ritual as much as the next person, but not at work. Now all I have to do is figure out which is the best travel mug for me, and I will be totally in the 21st century in my outward world doings. Home is totally another story ;)

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
