Many, many thanks to ashmanra for this tea!!!

I was trying to learn something new at work, and had one of those frazzle dazzle mornings that turned to afternoon before I knew it. This was my company :) Delicious pomegranate taste! Delicious tie guan yin type oolong! BUT – perhaps they are like two perfectly good people who just don’t get on together – maybe they would be better apart. I kept on wanting to taste the green oolong alone, and also have a fruity tisane – alone! (in fact I’m drinking Tazo Passion as I write this note because I was really enjoying the fruity!) Really nice high quality tea – and I’m even looking forward to drinking the other sachet ashmanra so generously sent!! but not an OMG run out and get it one for me. I love the flavors but I’d like then in two separate cups ;)

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
