Another rainy day. Time to pull out my ultimate comfort tea: Madagascar Vanilla. The first steep was creamy, sweet, and delightful with the addition of a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of milk. I took the second steep plain, and the true vanilla bean flavor emerged. Mmmmmmmmmm. Just exactly right.

My youngest has recently become addicted to Harney’s Vanilla Black and has almost polished off a whole tin in just two weeks. I think I still have some of this one – I will have to give her some to try. She tasted Mariage Freres Vanilla and thought Harney was better. It will be interesting to see what she thinks of this one!

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
