drank Vanilla Mint by Golden Moon Tea
1112 tasting notes

Finishing up my sample today :( My poor husband is home with some kind of virus (at least I think it’s a virus because he feels so feverish and is queasy and his head is killing him) and I am feeling like I am not too far behind in the queasy department. My new friend mint to the rescue! (the running joke in my house is that next I’m going to start liking sushi! The three things I hated were coconut, mint and sushi, and here I am CRAZY about coconut and now mint!!!). ANYWAY!

This tea is really hitting the spot today. I can’t even think about the idea of milk without my stomach churning, and this combination of green and black teas with a touch of comforting vanilla and tum soothing mint? Absolutely ideal and very, very delicious. I am so sad that I don’t have any more leaves left, but will definitely be making another steep for medicinal purposes. whimper!!

Oh, dear – feel better fast – you & The Husband! As to sushi, you never know, you may one day fall in love with it, but don’t think of it now when you are in this state!

Awww, if I had some I’d send it your way, but unfortunately I don’t. Booohooo! Anyways, what was I saying, oh yeah! You finished up your sample!?!? Does that mean all your GM samples are gone!?!? Or did you just finish up this tea.

JacquelineM I have the orchid oolong. snow sprout, the two darjeelings (nepalese afternoon and darjeeling) and tippy earl grey left!! I gave away a few of them (the pu ehrs, the lapsang, and the organic green tea) so I won’t be reviewing those…but yes, almost done!!! I would love to get a tin of this one but I really want to try Samovar’s Moorish Mint first. That one sounds scary good!!!

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
