This tea smells strong of vanilla. I am also getting a hint of bergamot, which pairs nicely with the vanilla.

This is not a strong black tea, at least compared to some of the other black teas I have been drinking lately. The lightness, combined with the vanilla and bergamot is delicious. It has a relaxing quality to it. I think this is one of the first black teas I have had that I would classify as “relaxing”.

I have the Around the World sampler from DAVIDs that I have slowly been working my way through, and I think this might be my favorite tea from it so far.

Tea: I am relatively new to tea, and joined Steepster to learn more about it. I am very open to suggestions, and enjoy reading everyone’s tasting notes. I think this community is awesome.

Me: I am a software developer working for a small company and absolutely love my job. Despite being a “computer guy”, I love the outdoors, and enjoy backpacking and camping. I also really enjoy philosophy, photography, reading, and music.

69 and lower: I probably would not buy this tea again. I might enjoy it, but I have had other teas that are much better.
70-79: I find this tea good, but have had better teas. I would gladly have another cup, but it probably wouldn’t be my first option.
80-89: This is a cup of tea that I really enjoy, and would buy again.
90-100: This is a cup of tea that I not only enjoy, but find something unique about it. This is something I would definitely order again.
