drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Extra delicious! I had a big (clean and dry!) tin from some Illy coffee beans, so I decided to transfer some of my one pound bag of Vanilla Comoro to it for safe keeping. Imagine my surprise when I saw lots of teeny tiny bits of what I now believe to be caramel showing themselves about a third of the way down! Those bits must settle towards the bottom during shipping and storing. Well! Now that I know that, I made sure each heaping teaspoon for the pot was liberally sprinkled with Magic Caramel Dust and wow – the caramel flavoring has really come out to play! Even though I’ve been enjoying this tea for about two months, ever since ashmanra introduced it to me, I STILL say to myself, “How can this be decaf? It’s WAY too good!”

Oooh! I just tried this several weeks ago and I LOVED it, but forgot to do a tasting note. It reminded me of the Colonille that you’d sent me :)

It really is delicious! I used to time it so I got the last tea in the pot, because there are bits of vanilla bean in it and I would lick my finger and swoop them out! At first I had thought it was dregs and the last tea would be bitter so I actually poured out the last drops at first! It is yummy! Hope nobody catches on…

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
