Oh, this is good. This tastes like really good quality vanilla extract smells. Almost. A bit less vanilla-y, though, and a bit more oak-barrel-y. :) A really nice black base that takes cream well (I picked up some organic cream because it doesn’t have thickeners in it, and it’s SO MUCH NICER in tea! I didn’t think cream could get nicer, but it did.). Doesn’t need sweetening, although I bet it would take sweetener well too.

Tempting to keep this one, or some of it at least…

(PS. The toads are squacking. I REALLY hope this doesn’t mean that they’re gonna start breeding. I do not want babies. Nope. Not at all.)

Flavors: Oak wood, Vanilla

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Wishlisted! And the toads are clearly telling you that they want tea, too!

It’s interesting that I would normally call this a winter tea, but it was so good even though it’s way too warm outside.

I love all things vanilla, and I’m always drawn in by the bourbon/Madagascar/Tahitian descriptor. Such a sucker! :P

OMGsrsly

Well, this is a nice vanilla-oak tea. :)

Are those your own toads…or the outdoor ones in the wild?

caile

haha, I just saw your note below…foster-parenting toads. :)

OMGsrsly

Yeah. Fostering them because they weren’t getting cleaned and fed. Idk. I have to buy fresh food for them weekly, which. :/

caile

Yeah…I similarly took in a lizard many years ago…the feeding part was not great at all! Eventually I gave it to a local pet shop though.

OMGsrsly

This is easy: dump crickets in tank. Close tank. Wait. :) I don’t mind crickets, but I can’t stand wormy things.

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
