Many thanks to Meghann M for this tisane!!!!

I had a Zingiber Ginger Coconut fix last night! Yummy Amaretto Goodness :) I made it nice and strong (3 heaping tsp tisane for 16 oz water and steeped 6 minutes) so I could add a squeeze of agave nectar and a splash of half and half. Very delicious and a great shot of variety after being in my evening Vanilla Comoro Chocolate Chai repeating cycle lately :) It was great with a little shortbread – what a rich and decadent night!

Thanks once again Meghann!!!! I have a Teavana a 10 minute drive from my house and am scared to death to go in there! (the mall is a very frightening concept to me yet alone the Pushy Salesperson-ness!) but I really love this one and was sooooo happy to have a nice pot of it. Ahhhhh…happy sigh! Maybe I’ll get up my gumption and go…maybe!!!

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
