drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

I’ve been at a conference for work, which meant coffee, coffee, coffee. But at night, it meant Vanilla Comoro, Vanilla Comoro, Vanilla Comoro! Yes, I drank it three evenings in a row. So comforting and delicious.

I am happy to go back to my kettle and tea tomorrow! I feel as if I have lattes flowing through my veins instead of blood. It ain’t pretty.

Hi Jacqueline :) Do you use just one bag? I find when I steep this I need to use two bags to get enough flavor.

Hello! I use loose, and a nice heaping teaspoon. I dig deep and make sure there are plenty of flecks (little spots of vanilla bean) because they tend to go to the bottom of the tin I keep the tea in. I think Harney only sells this one loose in 1 lb bags, but I am already on my second pound!

Well somehow I got my hands on a tin of the pyramid bags and I wish I knew how I got this tea lol I just don’t recall. I had to have ordered it – oh wait – maybe English Tea Store. I don’t generally go for bagged teas myself and I think that is the issue – its not loose leaf. So two bags at a time it is for me. :) Good to know though that you have good results with loose! It is a yummy tea!

Bio

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
