I have to put the song for Golden Orchid up front for the soundtrack to this review: Miss Etta. At Last: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ45Q7ZuTEs&feature=kp

In the beginning, there was the truly delicious North Winds blend. Mz Priss tasted the North Winds and found that it was good. On the second day, WPTC lofted it to the stratosphere with the addition of a simple vanilla bean. This is one of the most groovealicious blends of tea I have ever tasted. And I mean groovealicious in the George Clinton-One Nation Under A Groove way and not the 60’s hippie way.

Sticking my snoot into the bag is a delight. This is all yummycreamy vanilla cocoa malt. I want to bathe in it. With North Winds as the base it has all the same coca malt notes, but the alchemical addition of the vanilla smooths it out even more than it was already was. It is almost like a vanilla caramel taste – though I don’t really detect a load of caramel. There is a very slight astringency on the tip of my tongue with a faint background of tobacco in the best way.

Love that I’m living in beautiful Central Texas – land of good fun, good friends, good food, good music and good tea (Zhi – word.) Tasting great tea makes me hear music. Very often you will see a link to the song I hear for a particular tea.

I’m now blogging about tea and food at: http://atasteofmzpriss.wordpress.com/

I am always up for swaps, so stalk my cupboard and hit me up if you see something you want to try.

Black/red Chinese teas hold the key to my heart.

I don’t care much for flavored teas, especially the fruity varieties. My exceptions are chai and Earl Grey, and apparently now vanilla. Not much love for lapsang souchong either.

I sit squarely on fence with green and white teas.

If I end up in hell, my punishment will be to drink rooibos.
