The mint definitely helped this decaf with the strange chemically thing I get with them. I steeped for 4 minutes, and heaped the teaspoon with tea, but…still…it’s not a bad cup, but there is something that just isn’t right. This isn’t an ugh, can’t drink tea, but it’s not something that I would like to purchase. Thank you SimplyJenW for letting me try this!! These decafs have been a real education!

A good decaf is hard to find! It makes me appreciate Vanilla Comoro even more!! I’m going to do a little more experimenting with Harney, and maybe my local tea shop. But my gut tells me I may find one or two more decafs that I like, but I will probably still be leaning on herbals, rooibos, and Vanilla Comoro the most! It is what it is!

I think you will like the Decaf Ceylon from Harney’s (I think someone was sending you some.) I will admit to appreciating tea better now myself. That Vanilla Comoro turned me into a decaf snob, and now I don’t want to settle in the decaf department. This whole tea thing has been such an education.

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
