drank Golden Monkey by Premium Steap
1112 tasting notes

Today was the welcome back “coffee” break at the University I work for, but of course I made it my very own welcome back TEA break – I brought my cranberry muffin and bagel back to my office, fired up the Breville, and made some Golden Monkey That Does Not Taste Like A Golden Monkey! (although to their credit the university did have Harney & Sons bagged tea as an offering :)

I always pick this one when I have something good to eat for breakfast. The raisin-y assertiveness goes so well with yummy pastries and bagels. Heaven! (or as close to heaven as you can get when you are at work ;)

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
