From Simpson & Vail

The delicate prose of Jane Austen’s novels is evoked in this blend that combines peppermint with a gentle touch of vanilla. Lavender flowers, which look lovely in both the cup and the gardens around Jane Austen’s estate, add a sweet floral taste that complements the mint and vanilla wonderfully. This blend captures the color and joy of Austen’s characters while taking inspiration from the herbs and flowers she cultivated in her own garden. It brews to a refreshing cup with a cool mint flavor that’s softened by the warm vanilla and the sweet lavender flowers.

Ingredients: Black teas, spearmint, lavender flowers and vanilla flavor.

I was weirdly excited about this and I have no clue why because I don’t love Jane Austen. However, I guess I could sense it was a good tea because this awesome smelling brew came out with lovely notes of spearmint, lavender, and vanilla. All distinctive and yet subtle.

Now, I was never much a fan of Austen, especially when I heard the Brontes were also not much of a fan. I’m a Bronte fan completely. I recently watched ‘To Walk Invisible’ and was wondering what is with all the Branwell screen time? I guess he added drama. I’m much more of a fan of this tea than Austen. The black tea acts as the perfect base (there, yet not too strong) for great flavors. It’s a unique blend of spearmint, lavender and vanilla flavor. Not only do these three flavors go wonderfully well together and complement each other, but they are also equally balanced. This tea almost should have been the Bronte tea and each flavor could have represented each sister (lavender for Emily because she loved the moors, vanilla for Anne because she was the sweet one, and spearmint for the boldness or possibly the freshness of Charlotte’s writing). I read Anne’s ‘Agnes Grey’ last year, and if it wasn’t for her sisters brilliant writing, I think her writing would have been even more well received than it is. So even though some would say Anne didn’t bring much to the table, I disagree! Now I wish I were reading a Bronte book today. This tea would be lovely with reading.

Another one of my kitty buddies had a rough night last night. Fluffy didn’t pass too far behind her brother, who passed away on 2/4 of this year. She seemed fine up to a couple days ago.. she was a scrappy one! Her suffering wasn’t long, but it is very hard to know they are suffering even for a short time. Another hard day in a hard year. Both cats kind of bookended my Dad’s hospital visits this year. Next year HAS to be better.

Flavors: Lavender, Spearmint, Vanilla


So sorry hear about the kitties and Dad. :(


I’m so sorry for your loss.


Thanks very much, Nicole and Arby. Dad is doing better after his stroke and brain hemorrhage in June. He is walking every day, working on his speech for his aphasia every day, and has recently started shoveling too much. So the year COULD have been worse, but it also could have went better.

tea-sipper working on his speech doesn’t just mean talking — he does worksheets, works on tablet apps for aphasia and reads aloud.

So sorry to hear this….


Thanks Dexter


I’m so sorry about your kitties ): my grandad and uncle both suffered strokes, my uncle very recently, and I know how frustrated they were with their aphasia. Both are doing infinitely better now, and I hope the same can soon be said about your dad too.

On a better note, I love the Brontës too! But I also love Jane Austen XD


Thanks, Nattie – it must have been very tough having two of your family members go through aphasia. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for anyone to go through that. But it is definitely something that can improve over time and glad to hear your grandad and uncle are doing better with it!

I LOVE being surprised – or better yet – proven wrong – by a tea and Jane Austen’s Black Tea Blend from Simpson & Vail Tea did exactly that! This is just what I needed to start my day on a crazy Monday morning! I just might have to buy this one in bulk and soon! This is a heavy-duty tea that gets a GOLD STAR from me!
