This I like. Its a soft and warm cup, and I shall sip.
This is a very exciting review, isnt it? Ha. Well, this is a prefect tea to accompany my evening of doing absolutly nothing.

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo

Vanilla! I sometimes feel like the odd one out, in my love of vanilla. (then I come here and I know that its not true. I’m in good company.) The quest for vanilla perfection continues.
This was a gift, and a beautifully thoughtful gift, and one that I have not been paying specific attention to. Its a perfectly nice rooibos, with a vanilla mellowness to it. The perfect vanilla tea? No, but not a bad cup at all.

Agressive overleafing and a short steep time give this an almond quality, but not the cookie that I have been hoping for.
This is the first of the Simpson and Vail teas that I’ve managed to sip down, for which I am glad. (ETA- Lies! I sipped down Gingerbread! Gah. Its obviously too early in the morning for me to think)
Sip sip sip.

I love me some aggressive overleafing in the morning, haha!

I’ve been spoiled after Della Terras Apple Pie tea. This does not measure up, in my opinion. I get a little apple, and some burnt “baked” flavor, but its not impressing me.
The smell, however, is very nice, and I am going to keep playing with the shorter steep times, to try and get what I want.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Another favorite to add to the list today.
This is such a warm cup. That might sound like a silly thing to say about hot tea, but some are just, I don’t know, inherently warmer than others. This is one of those. No matter how deep the chill, this warm vanilla cup will find it and warm it.

Only the favorites today. Vanilla and caramel, one of my favorite combinations. And this is such an elegant version of it.

My dog Spike died yesterday. It was such a hard day that I didnt even want to drink any tea.
Today is going to be hard as well. Its going to be hard for a while.
For today, anyway, nothing but my favorite teas. I need all the happy I can have.

I’m so sorry. My Beni died almost two years ago, and I still have hard days. It’s because we loved them so much — we have to have this hard stuff because we had so much of the wonderful stuff. Be gentle with yourself and take all of the time that you need.

One of my sisters gift teas to me.
Er… I’m finding this one really bitter. Maybe I did something wrong? Hmph.

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Today is a day to drink teas I like, I’ve decided, and after a long morning of stress and work, I’m going to take a moment with fruits D’ alsace, a much enjoyed tea that I’ve neglected for a while.
Fruity, rich, and with the Harney smoothness that I know and love. Yum.

__Morgana__

Sounds like one I’ll have to put on the shopping list!

Roswell Strange

I’ve been dying to try this one for a while now :( Slowly working my way through the Harney samples I actually have in my possession, though ;P Nothing has blown me away yet, though.

Rosehips

If either of you would like a little sample, I would be happy to send you some. Shoot me a message, if you’d like!

__Morgana__

That’s very kind, but I’ll just add it to the next set of samples I get from H&S.

Jennkay

That reminds me that I have a sample of this I haven’t gotten around to. I’ll probably brew it up tomorrow!

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
