This made for a very satisfying evening tisane with a squirt of honey and a splash of milk.


I know I can do better flavor wise and price wise with a loose, spicy rooibos chai. I will enjoy the mild flavor and convenience of this bagged tisane, but when it is time to repurchase, I’m going with a loose one. I like my flavored rooibos made with a heavy hand, and the Frugal Franny inside me HATES putting 3 bags in when I know I’m only making two cups. Franny has an easier time putting in an extra half teaspoon of tea ;)

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
