drank Chamomile Vanilla Bean by Fusion Teas
1305 tasting notes

I started to take this to work with me yesterday because I have all the proper equipment and the experience with it to brew this correctly. Last time I got it too weak and not hot enough. My wife saw me heading out the door with the bag and asked what I was doing. I told her.
She said, “It will put you to sleep”.
“No it won’t. It doesn’t have that affect on me.”
“Well, you’re not taking it”
“Because?”
“It’s mine!”
I’m smarter than I look. I put the bag down and walked away.
So when I got home from band practice late in the evening, I put a pan on the stove – not using the microwave this time. Brought it to a rolling boil and poured 2 cups into my press. In minutes the water was turning a beautiful golden caramel. I think I got it right this time. The vanilla aroma mixed with coconut is really nice.

The sip is vanilla at the front, followed by a mixture of flavors I don’t recognize but can only assume is mostly the chamomile. Late in the sip it fades into a pleasant coconut/vanilla mix that remains in the aftertaste. I do like this. I can’t say I fully understand it, but then I am not the chamomile drinker. So I ask my wife what she thought – is this good?

She said, “Oh, yes. You need to thank Fusion tea for sending this and tell them how good it is.”
“Done. So is this something you would drink often enough that we should order?”
“Absolutely. I love chamomile and this one is really good.”
As for me, this is the first chamomile I even wanted to finish so it looks like this is one we will be sharing – because I can’t leave the house with it.

Smart man!

Fusion Teas

Here in the States we sometimes forget the ceremony of tea and that it needs to be shared and enjoyed together. We didn’t have it in stock when you originally requested it but it was important to me to get it to you just so you and your wife good enjoy a great cup together. Enjoy!

As I am sitting here reading this the wife asked if we were going to have more of it tonight!

That was a cute story. I can’t wait until I’m in a place where I can share tea with my fiance. I am saving the blooming tea for him because he wants to see it bloom.
