drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
2384 tasting notes

I don’t remember if I had the sachets of this tea before, but the loose leaf is definitely very, very different, and infinitely better. I only bought this because…..drumroll, please…..I HAVE A NEW TEA CONVERT! And I needed this fast so I bought some at Target.

That’s right! Unfortunately, my mother-in-law took a real pearler, fell flat on her face, broke her nose, gashed her forehead, and tore a hole in her arm. We have therefore been spending a great deal of time at the hospital from four to seven hours a day. My pregnant niece was there, complaining about how tired she is of water. She has cut out coffee, has gestational diabetes and doesn’t want sugary drinks, and is limiting caffeine very strictly. I rubbed my hands together with glee, pulled up the stats on a caffeine levels in teas, recommended some decaf Harney selections I thought she might like, and put together a sampling for her. She placed her first order last night!

I am going to make an effort to drink more tea because sitting in a hospital room and then running here and there for urgent errands I have not been drinking ANYTHING and hospital air is dry. I was wondering why my knees and legs were hurting when I suddenly realized it was dehydration. Tomorrow I will take most of the day “off” and spend the day with a friend, drinking good tea and eating coconut creme pie.

Now I have to get the loose leaf. I’ve been waiting until my tin of sachets is empty—which it almost is… ;-)

I guess I am evil. I may have mentioned to my niece that should she wish to order loose leaf and didn’t want a whole pound, then…ahem…I can get tins and split it.

I’ve wondered whether there was much difference between the loose leaf and sachets. What about the difference between regular and decaf? I’ve just had the decaf sachets and I have loved them. Should I break down and buy some loose leaf?

ashmanra

I haven’t had the sachets of decaf but I thought the loose leaf was great! It didn’t taste all washed out to me.

Oh my, so sorry for your mother in law, that sounds terrible. Hope she gets all the care she needs…
And woot for the new convert , good job :-)

MzPriss

Oh no! That’s just awful – I hope she gets better soon

ashmanra

She is one of the toughest people you will ever meet, and has kept going when others would have given up and given in. She has a really great attitude.

Friends and pie. Excellent RX for what’s been ailing you :)

Offering to split tins isn’t evil. In my book that’s clever!

Hubby says I look like a drug dealer when a pound comes in that is being split because I have baggies out and a big scale, weighing the leaves and divvying up! He threatens to turn me in! LOL!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
