drank Vanilla Cream by Culinary Teas
361 tasting notes

I bought this one and the plain vanilla black tea as 1oz samples ($2.20 – really good deal) and have been drinking them interchangeably without taking time to find out which one I prefer. Since I just had the plain vanilla I figured I’d have the vanilla cream and see if there is much of a difference. There actually is. The cream has the same yummy vanilla flavor, but (surprise surprise) is much creamier. Like having a vanilla tea with a little whipped cream in it. I think I prefer it. It’s a little smoother, doesn’t need much milk or honey. Both are good, but this is just a little better.

Wow this sounds gooooood

OMGsrsly

I keep looking at their teas, but then flail and close out of the shopping cart once it calculates shipping to Canada. :)

Aw, is it bad? I was on the Verdant website the other day and the same thing happened, it was like $28 for the CHEAP option! Highway robbery. Ridiculous. So much for wanting to let the people of the world experience your teas

Wait, no. It wasn’t Verdant, sorry. It was another site which had yummy teas I wanted to try. Verdant is on my list though, but I haven’t gotten as far with their shopping cart yet.

It was more than the cost of the samples to ship to me. :) I think it averages out at about $35, but am not 100% sure.

Bio

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
