1350 Tasting Notes
I’m getting ready to make a few big tea orders, and a lot of the teas I’m ordering involve the word “vanilla”. I was worried I was going overboard, and that I don’t really love vanilla as much as I think I do…
…and then I had a cup of this. Mmm, vanilla. Yes, I love vanilla. And vanilla tea is my happy place. I opened this up hours ago to talk about how this just didn’t resteep well for me, but then I got distracted and the tea cooled considerably. Never mind. It resteeped beautifully, I just notice it more when it’s cool, like most teas.
The vanilla curls up with the oolong for a creamy liquor that just…mmm. I love this tea.
Found myself sick to the stomach this afternoon and curled up with a big cup of this. Nausea is gone and now I have a new love: this tea. I can’t even begin to describe how yummy it is, how it managed to almost be creamy….mmm. My wife (De) is clearly delusional in her dislike of this tea, but that’s okay…it means more for me!
This tea rates up there with Bravissimo in happiness-inducing for me. I always forget I have it, or when I glance at it, I keep on looking because it doesn’t seem that spectacular to me. But when I do give it a go, I melt. The cinnamon is perfect, just a little burn without overwhelming everything else. Like others have said, it reminds me of little cinnamon candies. My grandma used to make sugar cookies for Christmas and decorate them with those little Red Hots…it was my favorite part! This tea brings up that memory and those good feelings for me. I definitely need to remember how much I love it.
