The base is a pretty basic decaf. I am not HUGELY sensitive to caffeine but after 7:00PM – 8:00PM I try to switch to decaf or caffeine. The yummy thing about this tea is that DEEP vanilla flavor. I hate fake-y vanilla. Abhor it. The vanilla here is pure deep vanilla bean sweetness. This is a great caffeine free late night desert tea.

I am a huge fan of Harney and Sons Vanilla. This tea rates comparable to my old decaf favorite.

I got to try this after a trip to Tin Roof Teas while visiting North Carolina. If you get a chance to visit this tea store while in NC I highly suggest it.

Ha ha. I am jealous. I have to stop drinking caffeine after lunch or I am up all night.

How does this compare to Harney’s decaf Vanilla Comoro? I am out at present and I only buy it loose by the pound, though I could call the Millerton location and get it by the ounce. Vanilla Comoro has more vanilla and caramel flavor than Vanilla Black. I will be near Tin Roof on Thursday and could pick some up then if it is as good.

I think that vanilla comoro still has more caramel notes. But this is a good stand-in and you can buy it locally and for less quantity. I will be home tonight and can do a side by side comparison. I will keep you posted tonight!!!

Oh, thank you!

I did the taste test. Both are good teas. Both are vanilla-ey. But the Tin Roof one is almost cherry-ey and the Harney one is more caramel. I like both but I think Harney comes out on top.

Thank you! I will just have to order another one pound bag! :)

I like all kinds of tea and am open to new things. I am learning about all kinds of new tea and am working on pushing my palate with new tastes.

Looking for new tea shops/houses/cafes and finding new teas to sample is often part of the adventure!

Bringing varied teas to work makes the day interesting

I live in Framingham, MA with my husband, a cranky orange cat and an oversized chihuahua.

I am open to tea swaps from around the world and tea meetups if anyone is in the Greater Boston/ New England area.

As of 7/6/14 I am working to make every tea I own appear in my cupboard…including things I only have a small amount. Look around! Want to swap?
