drank Bourbon Vanilla by Kusmi Tea
731 tasting notes

Thanks Nicole for sending some of this my way :)

I’m waiting on this to cool and it smells almost reminiscent of root beer, faintly, but it’s definitely there. Now if only it would cool faster so I could actually taste it.

I actually enjoy the black base Kusmi uses. I do have to be in the right mood for it, because it is quite strong, but it’s not offensive like some I’ve tried. I can taste the vanilla here, though it isn’t very apparent, and perhaps that’s because of the strong base. I will certainly enjoy the rest of this cup while I study.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
