drank Vanilla Black by Georgia Tea Company
356 tasting notes

I had my first steep of this one earlier in the afternoon and then took my parents out to dinner and then Toy Story 3 to celebrate Father’s Day a day early. Toy Story 3? Yeah, it’s brilliant. That said, I cannot recall much of the first steep beyond it being a very pleasant tea. I agree with Kristin that it’s more subtle on the vanilla side of things, but to me it tastes natural. With this second steep (added 2 minutes) the tea’s sweetness is coming forward while the vanilla’s has taken a step or two back. Still very pleasant. Just an overall very pleasant inoffensive cup of vanilla tea. NE

I sooooo want to see Toy Story 3!

I typically wait for movies to be on Netflix, but my dad asked and I did want to see this so I caved (I mean, it’s even the opening weekend!) Naturally there were a ton of kids (only a few who were too young to understand the concept of “shhh”) and a man with a deep voice and low i.q. behind us that sometimes felt the need to say aloud why something was funny.

Beyond that, there’s a sequence that I’m so happy that I got to see before someone spoiled it for me (be it a friend or on tv). Seriously. The cost of the tickets was worth the 20 seconds where the entire audience (myself included) was laughing uncontrollably.

Dawn (life in a teacup)

Ha, I like to relate my tea experiences to things im doing like reading a book or listening to a type of music. Sorta psychoanalyzing my scenario’s with which tea I’m tempted to drink at the moment! ;D

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
M=Meh
GA=Gods-Awful
