drank Honeybush Vanilla by Teavana
1112 tasting notes

I had the last of this tea last night.

I couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t order from Teavana again when there are so many wonderful tea companies out there. It just felt wrong, knowing what I know about how they make their workers sell, and how high their prices are.

I wound up getting some Honeybush and some Vanilla rooibos from Mountain Rose Herbs. I’m going to mix them, and cut a vanilla bean in them. I’ll feel much better knowing that I’m buying from a company that not only sells delicious tea, but that I believe in.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

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
