I freakin love vanilla.
Kyra, what’s your secret ingredient? Why do all your cookies and cakes taste so good!?
Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret, my friends. I overdo it with the vanilla. Don’t believe me? Watch me as I bake things. You’ll see me accidentally grab the tablespoon, instead of the teaspoon measure. Oh whoops, I wasn’t looking. I accidentally poured too much and it already mixed in with the rest of the ingredients! Well, I can’t pull it back now.


So with that being said, vanilla is my FAVOURITE.
This tea, oh wee! The vanilla was fairly strong in this one! Not like sickening strong, but a good strong. Smells like pure vanilla which is great :) And the leaves opened up so nicely as it was steeping, and the vanilla still carried through!
Sipping, though, I taste more butter than vanilla :( Aww much sadness :( it’s a very nice cup! Silky smooth, but where’s the vanilla?

There are stevia sweeteners with vanilla and/or French vanilla that are totally awesome. They can improve the most awful teas. As you can tell, I love vanilla too.

Tea rating guide:
100-90: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
89-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with Jasmine because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Queen Tea for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk with the exception of chai. I like chai with just a wee dash of milk and a sprinkle of sugar! This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess. I have friends who think I have a problem with tea, but I really don’t. Everything is good in moderation.
I also have a mug buying problem and I’ve got Disney to blame for that. At least all my mugs are being put to good use!

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I’m an avid fandom blogger on tumblr we have some weird way of talking to each other and sometimes I forget that this isn’t tumblr oops
