594 Tasting Notes
Ah, Comoro. Vanilla Blacks decaffeinated little sister. I would be more weirded out by a decaf black tea, if it wasn’t so lovely. A way for me to have the flavors of my beloved Vanilla Black in the evenings, without running the risk of being up all night. This is a delightful vanilla balm for the soul, and a great cup for the end of a long day.
Ah. Ahhhh. This is the stuff. Yume was an impulse buy, and I should listen to that impulse all the time. This is wonderful, simply marvelous. Fruity and light and simply wonderful. I am working on a month long 50000 word writing project, and my writings are always powered by tea. This is the perfect pot to start off this novel. Yume has beautiful fruit and vanilla flavors, though I don’t get much of the rose out of it. Yum!
My parents returned from a trip to Hawaii and brought me this tea. I LOVE this tea. Its light, and seems to sparkle across the palate, which may be a weird thing to say about black tea, but there you have it. Its got rose in it, but its amazingly subtle, and just turns into a light and delicious tea. The sad thing is that this tea is only available in Hawaii, and I am rapidly running out of this. Sadness. I will save my last couple of pots of Loke Lani for a special occasion.
Had a pot of this this morning. This is a lovely spice blend, the addition of the citrus keeps it from being too cloying, and too dark tasting. A night bright note in the middle of the earthy spices.
Shame its only out in the wintertime, but I’m nursing my supply along until then, so I don’t run out.
A tin of this was a gift from my boyfriend, who knows my love of tea, and also my love of Darjeeling. So when he returned with this expensive brew from Teavana, I was eager to try it.
Meh. Its a perfectly drinkable cup, but its nothing special, and is rather light for a Darjeeling.
Still, I will drink the rest of this, but I wont be heading out to get it myself.
