I had a huge Indian lunch with my coworkers, and was too stuffed for a proper dinner! All I kept dreaming of was coming home to a nice sit down on the sofa with a huge mug of chai, and that is exactly what I did!

I prepared it with my favorite stovetop method, which makes for a creamy, moderately spiced, and flavorful cup. A little honey makes it all the better. One of my favorite treats in the world! I was up til midnight because of the caffeine, but it was worth it!

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
