drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
3 tasting notes

Let me start by saying that I loooove a good vanilla black tea. If I make a pitcher of it iced I’ll down the whole thing in several hours and since this blend is decaf, I can do that without too much worry. It’s equally nice as a steaming hot brew at any time of day. The flavors of this come through clear and rich and distinct, not dusty or bitter like some of the cheaper vanilla blacks. You’ll miss this when it runs out… it’s comforting in the way that that big, comfy, well broken-in arm chair at your favorite indie coffee shop is comforting.

Bio

My earliest memories of tea involve a dark little shelf full of my father’s collection…teal blue, orange, and yellow metal tins that no one makes anymore. I was probably about six at the time. I was too young to be trusted to hold them, but he’d let me smell the aged leaves, almost always black or oolong, and drop a few pinches into the tea ball. Looking back, that tea ball probably ruined the real flavor of those teas, but it was good enough to lead me to my own (not so) little treasure trove of precious leaves, mostly Japanese with a healthy selection of black.
