If Jane Austen Mafia were a band I’d buy every song in their catalog, and I’d wear my band tee long after they sell out and go mainstream. That’s the kind of dedicated fan I’d be!

Jane Austen Mafia isn’t a band even though it is the best band name ever. Jane Austen Mafia is a tea. A pretty damn fantastically grand flavored black tea! Vanilla and blackberry combine with black tea for a marriage built on equality and true love worthy of a 19th century novel penned by an idealistic forward thinker.

This tea sample tasted particularly sweet because it was given to me with sacrifice in the spirit of true tea-friendship. Teawing sent me the very last bit of Jane Austen Mafia that he had left and it’s one of his favorite teas. Who other than a true gentleman would do such a thing? I owe him a huge debt of gratitude!

Ah shucks, no big deal… Just passing along some of that tea joy that has come my way since becoming a regular here. I am so glad you liked it. I agree, it is the perfect name for a band.

I have heard so many good things about this tea…I think I need to hunt down some of it!

I wish this flavor was avaiable on a better quality base. I am not much of a fan of Adagio’s flavored tea base anymore. It is kind of flat in my opinion.

SimplyJenW

available. It is too early!

And for the record, that last bit I sent Jenn came from SimplyJenW!

That has to be one of the most awesome names for a tea ever.

Jenn

Teawing, ah ha! I owe SimplyJenW an even bigger debt of gratitude now as well. There’s no such thing tea-debtors’ prison, right?

@Jenn If there was, I would surely be an inmate…

SimplyJenW

Me too….aren’t we all essentially totally endebted to QuiltGuppy! She has sent me so many wonderful oolongs to try, but I am trying to work out my kettle situation so that I have some temp control! And BTW, I love to share tea, because it makes me happy…the sharing and the drinking. :D (It is funny because I accidentally typed ‘live’ instead of ‘love’, and actually both are quite fitting.)

Jenn

SimplyJenW, I love to share tea with other excited tea-folk as well! I think that our little group here on Steepster is a particularly generous bunch though, and I can’t even begin to communicate how much I owe to the QuiltGuppy. She’s like our Godmudder :)

Bio

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
