drank Decaf Ceylon by Harney & Sons
1112 tasting notes

Sit down everyone! There is a plain, black, decaf tea that ACTUALLY TASTES LIKE TEA! No strange chemical taste. No horrible dirty dishwater weakness. A solidly good cup of tea that I would quite pleasurably drink during the day, even if it was not decaf! A minor miracle!!!!!

Now, that being said, this is not the best cup of tea you will ever have. It definitely has that Ceylon profile – bright and lemony – which isn’t my favorite. It does not knock you down with deliciousness, like most of my daily drinkers. But it’s a gosh darn good cup of classic tea that you can have at 9pm and not stay up all night! I’m amazed!

Thank you ashmanra for another tea love!!!! This one is getting ordered!

You know, this doesn’t surprise me, given that Vanilla Comoro is such a great decaf tea. I’ll have to make a note of this one for my next Harney’s purchase.

I was so thankful to find this one for hubby. He was avoiding caffeine at night but doesn’t care for herbals or very many kinds of tea. This one was a thumbs up from him, and since I usually share a pot with him I wanted something I liked, too. In winter I add freshly ground cinnamon and a little sugar. Add a heaping tsp. of Tang and you have old fashioned “Russian Tea” like our moms used to make! LOL!

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
