drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo
1112 tasting notes

Found myself out of milk during evening tea, with lemon squares remaining to be eaten! I knew I loved this one sans additions, so I gave it a whirl for the pairing. It was very, very good. I much prefer a true tea flavor with most desserts, but this hodgepoge of rooibos, herbs, fruits and the kitchen sink was really nice with the pastry. Apple and vanilla predominate, with a fullness from the rooibos. The dessert and tisane were a study in contrasts, rather than a melding of sugarlemonvanillacarameltea like in the previous nights pairing.

I also realized that whilst it’s nice to have with a splash of milk now and again, I do prefer this tisane plain!

I have one more serving of lemon squares, and I have no intention of going to the store for milk today! Let’s see what I come up with for tonight’s pairing (!!!).

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
