I was just sitting here trying to decide what tea to have next when I became inspired by JacquelineM and her enjoyment of Dawn. I was a bit hesitant to try this tea again because it seems that one day I like it, the next I could pass on it. I think I’ve figured out a strange pattern however. On days that I drink Dawn as my first tea of the day, I don’t like it too much. But on days that I drink Dawn after a heartier breakfast tea, I absolutely love it. My conclusion: Both me and my tastebuds need caffeine in order to appreciate the nuances of this tea.
So today, after drinking Vanilla Black by Harney & Sons, I am able to appreciate and enjoy Dawn. This tea is both light and full-bodied which almost seems like an impossible contradiction. I think that once my sample bag is gone, I will have to order more of this. So far I have had it every day and now that I know what it takes for me to enjoy it, I will continue to have it. This deserves a bump in ratings just because it is so interesting, calming, and makes me feel quite poetic and philosophical for some reason.
Okay, enough procrastination, on to my 8 page essay!!
