Mmmmmm! I really like this one! I love the creamydreamy vanilla they used and the taste is a great balance between the vanilla and the tea. I would definitely love a tin of this. On the site it says it’s great with buttered toast for breakfast, and I really wish I saved my sample to use for exactly that purpose. Now that I taste the tea, it sounds like an absolutely perfect pairing. Ah well, I will have to suffer until I get a tin!!!

So where would this one fit in the cupboard? WIth Jackee and Thomas or with Florence and Marco Polo?

Florence has hinted at Madagascar Vanilla being her lady-in-waiting when she comes into the cupboard. MV is so nice and gentle and agreeable – it looks like a done deal!

Your personification of your teas makes me giggle. So very fitting.

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
