My experience with decaf teas is that they generally taste kind of “flat” and uninteresting. I was happy to find Vanilla Comoro an exception to the rule. The rich taste of black tea is there, overlaid with natural, smoky vanilla. Some vanilla flavorings can taste artificial or strange, but this does not. It’s the perfect tea to have with a piece of shortbread — or even by itself — after dinner or at bedtime. Smooth, soothing, and delicious. I brew two teabags in my 16 oz mug and let it steep for six minutes, and I add one packet of Stevia to bring out the sweetness.

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
