drank Caramel by Kusmi Tea
1112 tasting notes

I spent Saturday fighting with a vintage knitting pattern, and the pattern won :( A whole day’s work had to be ripped out. I needed something sweet and wonderful to soothe me, and this tea came right to mind. Sweet, yes, but also complex and rich, and GOOD. Satisfying enough to have plain, yet feel like you were having the most delicious dessert. Ahhh – that’s better.

(and after sleeping on it, I got back on the horse and made friends with the pattern. All is well :)

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
