Sipdown. This is such a creamy pot of tea, with perfect strawberry flavor. A great tea for a summer evening. I am sorry to see this go.

A little pot of this is a lovely way to start up the day. This is a very elegant tea, with a lovely balace of flavors. The little sugar crystals in the dry tea gives it just the right amount of sweetness.

Have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this on my doorstep. I am trying out oolongs, and Vanilla is an excelent place to start.
Mmm, it smells like…. would it be weird if I said vanilla yougurt? Thats what I’m getting out of it. Thats how creamy it is.
I get more vanilla in the smell, and more grassyness in the taste. Ooolongs are relaxing, arnt they?


The vanilla in this is nice!

This is a very well balanced tea. The chocolate elements do not overpower the hazelnutty elements, leading to something reminicent of a fancy bonbon in a little chocolate shop.
This feels like an autumnal tea to me, like it would be fabulous to have on a chilly morning. I might keep ahold of the rest of this sample to try when it cools down some.


Hah! We both tried this at the same time this morning and gave it a similar score.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

After this mornings cup of Bigelow vanilla, I have decided to refresh my palatte with a cup of Comoro, and some fresh raspberries.
I’m almost out of Comoro, which is, of course, a problem. I feel like I always need Comoro!


It is good!

drank Vanilla Caramel by Bigelow

My love of vanilla will send me in quest of new and diffrent teas anytime. This isnt bad, but its certainly not a well balanced medly of tea and vanilla, like the best are. This is pure bottled vanilla, heated up and poured into a teacup. A little bit fake tasting. But it certainly smells like its advertised to. No balance, in this cup.


i am about to try silk road’s ‘vanilla plantation’….. it seems to be a vanilla day!


you need to taste Vanille des îles of Mariage Frères so…


Oooooh….. That sounds lovely.

Yum! This is a big cup full of almond pastry. Lovely! Butiki teas continue to impress. Yum yum!

drank Pure Mint by Twinings

Found this in the clearance bin at my local grocery store. I was interested. As a fan of mint tea, I thought I had tried it in most of its forms, but a black mint was new to me.
Its good. The mint does not get lost at all in the tea base, which is a relief, and you are left with a pleasant aftertaste of mint. Suprisingly good.

drank Damask Rose by Lupicia

Am I really the first one to review this? No pressure!
I drank several pots of this before getting a strong enough opinion to write about. Its kind of that sort of tea. A little unmemomorable. Its got rose flavor, but the astringincy of the tea sort of overpowers it, leaving me with a less mellow tea then I would like. Its got some natural sweetness, but more smoke to it then sweet.
Not a bad tea, you understand, just not wildly impressive.
And its got a very pretty tin.

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.
