I find it extremely funny that I haven’t written a tasting note yet for this one…because we just finished our entire tin! I just bought the tin on 11/28, so that is a little more than a month. To say we enjoyed this is an understatement! The secret is respecting the 6 oz of water per bag rule. I make a pot with 18 oz of water and three bags, and it is oh so delicious with some honey and a splash of milk. The vanilla makes it for me. It’s not only vanilla in flavor, but sort of like a vanilla creamer…milky and almost nutty. It is so warm and soothing combined with the chai spices. We are completely addicted!

I am not going to take it off my cupboard just yet, because my husband is going to Wegman’s tomorrow and I put it on the shopping list. Fingers crossed that they have some left!

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
