drank Morning Tea by Lupicia
184 tasting notes

I have a problem with black tea and vanilla combined. I have the problem with this tea and also with Café Moto’s Vanilla black tea blend. When I drink them I get this taste…well.. (hold onto your hats, folks) that isn’t really a taste… it’s more like a smell….the smell of the inside of a car repair place…kind of petrol-ish. I’m sure it’s a product of my wonky palate, but all the same, that’s what my mouth gets. I read someone’s else’s review that said they got a “smoky” note from this tea….hmmmm… perhaps the smoky and the vanilla combine to make petrol….but all the same, I won’t be buying this again. For me it’s like teatime down at the local oil change place….and I only need that every 3000 miles.

Spot or pot, I love a cup!

I learned to drink tea while living in Dublin in the early 80’s, so as you can imagine, I am a hearty brew lover, and take tea with milk and honey. I am trying to expand my horizons with tea….that is why I’m now on Steepster! Joined in January 2014.

Currently loving strong black teas that hold up to milk and honey well. I have a curiosity about keemuns and yunnans, but smoky ones are out. Green and white teas are off my radar, but making little forays into oolong and darjeeling tea. Herbal? So far only cacao tea has gone into regular rotation in my tea routine.

I do like some naturally flavoured teas…almond, vanilla, cardamom, ginger. This seems to be mostly in the cooler months…but mostly I’m an unflavoured tea drinker.

Life is too short for bad tea and bad bread.
