This is very picky but luckily today it is a success and I don’t know what I did. Creamy, rich, decadent, French vanilla buttercream goodness. Yum!

I’m not sure how the decaf Vanilla Comoro compares but I really like the decaf version in the evenings.

VariaTEA

Is there a non-decaf version?

Dustin

I had some last night and it was a fail. Do you remember how you steeped it?

VariaTEA

2.5 min but I don’t know what temp. I know I let the kettle sit for a little bit though

Cavocorax

I noticed it’s hit and miss, even when (I swear) I steeped it the same. I gave up on it and started adding milk to maximize my enjoyment of it even though it’s cheating.

VariaTEA

This is the one tea I always add milk to.

OMGsrsly

Adding milk isn’t cheating! I love this one with milk. I usually steep 3 min at 195F. However, Waves carries H&S and I get this one to go often in the evenings, and I don’t know what the stats are for that.

I put milk in all my tea. My stomach demands it. You get to the point where you can taste the sublety of the teas through the milk because the milk is the constant. There are purists, but I’m a milkist…and proud of it! :)

I get the Decaf Vanilla Comoro at a nearby grocery store. It’s in teabags. I haven’t had any particular trouble – 212F, 2.5 min. I use Stevia with it, no milk. Lovely in the evening when you want a black tea ;-P

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
