I have been fortunate to make some good friends on Steepster, in he last two weeks, friends have allowed me to try some amazing rare teas, and some more common teas that get high marks from the membership here. I was so glad to get to try “The Jane Austen Maffia” a while back and now, I am in the “Vanilla Comoro” Club a last! Thanks to QuiltGuppy, last night, late, after a cup of Vanilla Bean Nilgiri, I ended my day with VC.

Simple, sensible, and elegant are the words that come to mind. For me, the tea was a perfect balance of two complimentary factors. The vanilla was not creamy, not carmelly, not overdone or perfumy in any way. It was just right. To top it off, the black tea (although decaffinated :( came through as well. Nothing else. Simply elegant. I felt the urge to repour the tea from a trusty home cabinet mug to a nice china cup and saucer.
If the loose caffeinated version is this good, I am about to become a Harney customer.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading through your tealog this afternoon. I’m curious about where you live in the South as you’ve mentioned it several times, if you don’t mind divulging. I’m currently residing in Charleston, SC, myself. =)

I am glad you enjoyed it, just learning the ropes of tea with the help of some friends. Arkansas is home, a long ways from the coast…I am envious, seafood, the only tea plantation in NA, and such a rich history!
