I finished this off last week, and while I liked it, I never quite loved it.
The apple and the spice was not quite as present as I wanted them to be. My quest for the perfect apple tea continues.

Sipdown!

Its the Fourth of July, so I think it’s only appropriate to have an apple pie tea!
This is pretty nice. I find that apple teas sometimes get a little bitter, but this one does not. It’s mellow, with the apple, a little vanilla and a hint of cinnamon melting into each other. It’s an easy tea to drink, and works well for the day. I think I’ll also really enjoy it in the autumn!

I never could get this tea to work for me, which I take full blame for. I’ve always had trouble with blends with Jasmine in them- they go all funny on me nine times out of ten. The tenth is heaven, but I can never get it consistantly to do that.
Oh well. We were simply not to be. Farewell Valiant Vanilla!
Sipdown!

When I opened the packet of this I swooned. The leaf smells amazing, vanilla and jasmine dancing on the black tea base. Ooooh, this sounds gorgeous.
Brewed up I’m finding it a touch bitter, and I loose the vanilla in my steep. I might try a lighter steep next time, and see if it brings out more of the scrumptious smelling vanilla.

I hope you can coax out the vanilla! This sounds so good.

I’ve brought this tea with me to be my “at work” black tea. This is going to do really well there.
My criteria for the ideal work blend is a tea that is tasty, bu not too special, so I can sip on it distractedly if need be.
This is a very solid breakfast blend, rich without being overpowering, and I enjoyed it very much.

Now that I’ve gotten my cupboard down to a reasonable amount, I’ve decided its time to try out some new tea companies. That way I can spend some time on the blends without feeling completly overwhelmed by my cupboard (truly, it is an invisible pressure).
This company rather fell onto my radar accidentally, and I thought- hey, I like tea, and I like supporting female veterans of the military. And the blends sound good! So here we are!
(I have somewhat complex feelings about the military. I wish it was not necessary, I am a pacifist big time, but I also feel that veterans get the short end of the stick, and feel that they should be supported.)
This is an Earl Grey Cream blend, which I tend to like anyway, and this is a very nice one. It smells like pure heaven in the bag, and it brews up to an Earl that is well balanced with it’s vanilla component.
Hurrah new tea!
