I placed a big order to Mountain Rose Herbs for essential oils, herbs, spices, etc. and couldn’t help choosing a few teas to try, too :) I am one of those people who love a nice simple rooibos, and thought one with a little vanilla added would be right up my alley.

This one is truly delicious – fresh tasting and very rich. The vanilla is subtle, and I’m thinking of cutting a vanilla bean into it to enhance the vanilla flavor (I also got a bunch of them from Mountain Rose!).

I really like the idea that it’s so full in Good Things. As the Mountain Rose site states: A gentle and effective tea full of anti-oxidants, Vitamin C, Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc, Sodium, Copper, and Manganese. I think this sounds much better for a person than the processes they use to make decaf tea :) I still love my Vanilla Comoro 4ever & ever xoxoxoxo, but I think I’m going to give up on my searching for decaf teas, and enjoy these naturally caffeine free tisanes that have some nice benefits.

P.S. Finally got the Tea tote I’ve been coveting from Mountain Rose Herbs for the last year!

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
