I’m not normally a blender of teas, but tonight I wanted both of these and then brilliantly realized this could happen if I had them at the same time! Plus I really like each of these separately and they are complementary flavors so this couldn’t possibly turn out bad.

Steep notes: 1.5 tsp French Vanilla, 1.5 tsp Coconut Cream Pie, 500 ml. water, no additives.

Yup – this is a winner. It’s funny, though, I do taste them both individually – french vanilla first, then coconut pie. It’s very creamy and chewy in texture, and also sweet – no milk or sweetener needed. I have to sip slowly though otherwise I begin to get so acclimated to the flavor that I lose it.

Not a bad tea to end the year on, I think. :)

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
