drank French Vanilla by Hickory Farms
1625 tasting notes

The one thing about being a tea junkie … you turn into the dumping ground (ahem! recipient!) of all kinds of teas that co-workers and non-teaists don’t drink. In this case, some little packets of gift basket teas that evidently were part of a Hickory Farms goodie assortment.

This isn’t bad; the vanilla flavor is strong enough to counter the fact that the tea itself is a meh no-name black tea. A little creamer next time will probably make it palatable for office use.

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.
