drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
709 tasting notes

Re-steep. I like this tea, I really do. I don’t find myself turning to it very often, but I think that is the unassuming nature of this tea. It is solid and dependable, and will be there for you when things are strange, but it doesn’t demand your attention all the time. It’s relaxing, it’s mild, it’s lovely and comforting. I’m enjoying it.

This steep actually has the faintest of smells that suggests it is over-steeped, but none of that comes through in the taste. I love that it retains that vanilla flavour over the black tea base in multiple steepings…I could go to a third, but I think I’d lose all the vanilla at that point. It’s not the richest of teas, I find, but a splash of cream would be lovely in here, if I had some.

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
