drank Orange and Spice by Bigelow
1112 tasting notes

Wanted something sweet and spicy before bed. This did the job adequately, although I could have used a little more flavor. Maybe I need to use a slightly larger mug and two bags? This one gets a little cardboardy/teabaggy at the end. It seems Bigelow must use different teabags than Celestial Seasonings, because I don’t get that flat taste at the end when I leave the bag in with CS. What is the use of a lazy tea bag if you can’t be completely lazy and leave the bag in? ;)

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
