laurenpressley gave me an awesome idea with her tasting note yesterday :) I have been craving Hot Cinnamon Spice like nobody’s business since reading it! It’s so chilly, and this tea is especially fantastic when it’s chilly out :) Spicy and sweet. Invigorating! Great sans additions (in fact, I think additions might be completely sickening in this!).

My coworker told me that my tea smelled really great today. :) I put a nice sized sample in an envelope for he and his partner to enjoy over the weekend. I told him to watch out, this stuff is addictive!

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
