1 tsp Honeybush Vanilla, Teavana

1 tsp Monkey Colada (which is half Pina Colada Honey Bush, and half Monkey, ummmm you know (it’s a banana rooibos) 52 Teas

I love the Monkey Colada blend as it is, but with some of the creamy Vanilla Honeybush? Mmmmmmm! Even more pina colada action! The vanilla just seems to bring out all of the various flavors of coconut, pineapple, and banana even more. I’m not sure why or how, but ooooh I like!

When I had the Vanilla Honeybush by itself, I liked it very much, but what I really like to use it for is blending! I am systematically trying it with ALL of my roobois blends, and seeing what happens. So far, the whole is winding up to be greater than the sum of its parts!

Have a lot of Stash’s Vanilla Honeybush (like it a lot too). But thanks for the combining suggestion. This may work with a lot of things (to sweeten calorie free?). Will try. Thanks!

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
