A decaf tea! So far, I have never met a decaf tea that I liked. I tried this one, courtesy of ashmanra, with such hope since it’s a Harney, and since it’s vanilla! You know how I love vanilla! :) It smells so good – a very sweet and creamy vanilla.
As long as I kept in my head “It’s night time! This is decaf! Compare to drinking an herbal!” I LOVED it! As soon as thoughts crept into my mind like “Think of your Vanilla Assam! Think of Madagascar Vanilla tea!” I thought it was a little weak tasting and less tea flavor than I usually enjoy. But guess what – I had a delicious, creamy, satisfying, hot black tea at 9pm and I slept like a baby!
So my caveat is – as long as you think of this flavor aside a rooibos or such, it’s a revelation! I definitely want to add some to my cupboard for those late nights when I’m craving a black tea, or want something nice with a late dessert. Just don’t let those dark thoughts of fully caffeinated teas enter your head, and you will be fine :)
