Another rainy one. I just want to sip tea allllllll day. Finishing up my sample from Life in Teacup so I can do just that! :) Yup, just as delicious and honied as the first time I enjoyed it. Love the mouthfeel – slightly thick and milky. I can’t see how anyone could not like this tea – it’s so smooth and sweet. I am looking forward to steep after steep (especially since I have a noodle bowl for lunch!!).

Waxing philosophical for a moment: amazing how much enjoyment one wee teaspoon of tea can give me throughout a day! Even expensive teas (which this is not – this is a totally reasonably priced every day-ish sort of tea!) that are resteepers keep me smiling all day for cents a cup.

I am really sad that this is the last of my sample! I love this style of tea, and this tea in particular!

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
