Taken with a teaspoon of sugar.

YUM! I absolutely love it! The vanilla is that Golden Moon creamy vanilla which I think pairs very well with the jasmine. Whatever black tea they are using works very nicely with the whole shebang. The little bit of sugar makes it very smooth (I tried a plain teaspoon of the tea that was left in my teapot without sugar and I preferred the sugar addition). Hooboy – another one that I need a tin of :) I am having it all by itself, but I can see it being so delicious with some shortbread or other plain sweet like pound cake. It also must have a good bit of caffeine in it, because I have perked up quite a bit :)

I decided to do another steep at 5 minutes. It’s a bit lighter in taste, but I can still taste vanilla AND jasmine. I didn’t add any sugar to this steep, and it’s very sweet and pleasant. It holds up really well and is very delighful! If this tea can make me this happy on a Monday morning, I better get a CASE!! :) :) :)

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
