From The Whistling Kettle

Magical properties! It is said that Vanilla calms the nerves, lifts the spirits and improves the romantic aspect of one’s life. Vanilla is an extraordinary flavor that is full of mystery and elusiveness that is often taken for granted. Undoubtedly one of life little secrets, widely used in medicinal concoctions to make them more palatable. Thus a ‘magical’ flavoring agent, calming the mind and body!

Vanilla is the only edible fruit of the orchid family, likely the world’s largest flowering genus. There are two types of vanilla that are used for commercial purposes – Bourbon and Tahitian. It is the worlds most labor intensive agricultural crop, taking up to three years after the vines are planted, before the first flowers appear. Vanilla has a long history of robbery and intrigue as it is very expensive and highly prized and in growing countries it is not uncommon for vanilla rustling to occur. As there are about 150 varieties of vanilla, it is certainly a flavoring agent that is suited to one’s personal tastes. Combine the exotic character of vanilla with a velvet cream taste and you end up with the ‘Cadillac’ of flavored teas!

So, for anyone interested in a life update, my husband and I closed on our condo just over a week ago and we’ve been slowly moving in and getting things settled! The kitchen is about 95% done, including a tea cabinet that was the first thing to be set up. Okay, maybe my husband set up his computer first, but the tea cabinet was a close second. Priorities are priorities, right?

We had some friends over to help us paint this weekend. The previous owners were … well, they didn’t know how to house. Or clean. Or have much common sense. This week has been extremely frustrating for getting anything done because everything is filthy, nonsensical, or both. I was so happy to have people over who actually helped us make progress on settling in. We still don’t have most of our furniture here, but our office is set up and I have a desk (!!!) for the first time in years.

And now for the tea…

This is the one my friend requested when I offered to make her tea. She got the first steep and I took the second, only I massively oversteeped my cup. With a splash of flavored creamer to sweeten things up, you’d never know I oversteeped. Seriously. Whistling Kettle’s black teas tend to be very bitter to me, but this one was smooth, creamy, sweet, and absolutely lived up to its name. I’m very impressed … and very sad that I only have a sample of this … and Whistling Kettle is now several hours away from me. Booooo!
