This was buried treasure…literally. The packet had jumbled itself down to the bottom of my goodie basket but was unopened, so even though it’s a little oldish, it smelled oh-so-good! Like sticking my nose in a bag of wedding mints.

Steeped, the vanilla is coming through the loudest. (Should I worry when I describe taste with an auditory adjective?) Black tea base could have been plenty stronger for me, but I wasn’t paying attention to the size of the spoonful I dumped in my tumbler. I may have to try again. Aw, shucks :)

No worries… Vanilla can be loud! Just avoid screeching flavors…. They are not pleasant! ;)

Flavors that screech…hibiscus! (I’m sure there are others.)

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
