drank Rooibos Vanilla by Julius Meinl

My boss found this when cleaning out her office and said “you like tea, don’t you?” while throwing it my way. Don’t love rooibos, but as I said in my previous tasting note, this stuff is pretty good. Very nice creamy vanilla flavor.

This is good, but it makes me miss my now-gone Yunnan Noir :(

See previous tasting notes for full review. I found this after doing some digging in my cabinet; my black tea stash is finally reaching pitiful status, so I sucked it up and made a SpecialTeas order last night:
Chocolate Cream with Cocoa Pieces 1/2OZ
Ceylon Nuwara Eliya OP 1/2OZ
Caramel with Caramel Pieces 1/2OZ
Peach with Peach Pieces 1/2OZ
Strawberry-Cream with Pieces 1/2OZ
Apricot with Apricot Pieces and Flowers 1/2OZ
Mango w/Pieces & Flowers 1/2OZ
Coconut with Coconut Pieces 1/2OZ
Sencha Fine 1/2OZ
China Fine Ti Kuan Yin Oolong 1/2OZ
China Keemun Imperial 1/2OZ
Nilgiri Tiger Hill OP (CL) 1/2OZ
Ceylon Pettiagalla FOP 1/2OZ
Kenya Tinderet TGFOP1 1/2OZ

Whew. I’ll have a lot to try. I’ve really liked the few blacks that I’ve tried from there, especially the flavored ones, so I’m excited!


That is a huge order! Wheeee! Big tea orders always make me feel happy.


Woah that is a large order. Can’t wait to read your reviews!


wow…you’ve got some major drinking ahead!

drank Bollywood Star by Herb & Ginger

Mmm mmm mmm. First big thunderstorms of the spring here, and I needed to brew up some warm, soothing tea. This completely fits the bill. Lots of licorice and sweetness.

drank Honeybee by The Simple Leaf

Once again, I wish I could taste the honey in this tea. It appears that very few people can.


Heh, I am one of the “no honey” tasting people. I’ve been thinking—maybe the name refers to the floral pollen-y quality, and not honey itself? In the description, then mention lots of nearby native plants that contribute the flavor of the tea (due to pollination or something).

My black tea stash is depressing right now. I like this stuff, but I so miss some of my old standbys that I’ve recently run out of.

Yum! Peachy, juicy, and tasty.

I’m (almost) always up for a trade, so comment on a tasting note if you’re interested. I try to keep my cupboard up to date.

I’m a 23 year-old grant writer who loves having a good strong tea by my side as I write. I love The Mountain Goats, cooking, the Steelers, writing, beer, and singing in my office band.
