Oh wow. Oh, wow! I wasn’t sure what to expect with this, which is why I got a sample instead of impulse-buying a larger size. Maybe I should have gotten a bigger bag! It smells like a bottle of vanilla extract dry and tastes like ice cream wet (I used milk, so that may be a factor in that, but the flavor is excellent). I have ~four cups left in my sample and I’ll have to ration it so I don’t drink it all at once!

You should write a more elaborate tasting note and submit it for a reviewer’s discount if you haven’t already. It’s a great way to get more at a more affordable price.

Oh, I didn’t know they did that! Have you done it before? Do the certificates expire? I just expanded my collection again and wasn’t planning to do another order anytime soon.

Regardless, thanks for the tip!

I don’t believe they expire and you get $15 per review. If you go to their website, they have a whole page explaining it. Worth checking out!

I definitely will! Possibly after I try this a third time with cold milk. :)

Bio

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors. My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
