Tea of the Week for May 11, 2020!

Our New Temporary D’s Tea!

During our last inventory, I realized that we’re about out of our French Vanilla Marshmallow Assam & so it is about time to replenish our vanilla and/or marshmallow black tea in our permanent collection (aka D’s Teas!)

This time around, I started with our lovely Chinese black gunpowder tea which has a naturally sweet flavor to it. Then I added a little bit of Laoshan black tea (a tea known for it’s chocolate-y tones) and a little bit of Fujian black to round out the blend. My goal was to create a really smooth tasting base blend that wasn’t too astringent or aggressive. I wanted something that would allow the fluffy notes of vanilla to shine through. while still offering a really pleasing, rich black tea flavor.

I believe I accomplished that! This blend is really flavorful. Bold & assertive – without bitterness & without overpowering the softer, fluffier notes of vanilla. The overall cup is really smooth & oh-so-pleasant to sip. It’s also VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen free!

ingredients: black teas

organic ingredients: black tea, vanilla beans, cornflower petals & natural flavors

With all the stress of the week, it’s not surprising to me that I ended up gravitating more heavily to dessert teas this week – like this blend. I didn’t have my full attention turned to it while drinking, because I was so wrapped up in what I was working on, but I remember how comforting and cozy each sip was and the sweet lingering vanilla marshmallow notes on my tongue in between sips really stand out in my mind!

I know I liked this. I don’t know why. I drank it while I did work so I paid just enough attention to know I liked it.

Sipdown! I have been drinking a lot of tea but haven’t written a lot lately. I’m having a burnout issues between work and covid so i barely want to do anything except watch tv/sleep/read when i have 5 seconds to myself. Kiddo’s been more full of beans than ever these days so i can’t imagine what she’s going to be like when she hits 2! Some of our regions are back on lockdown, which doesn’t really change things for us but it’s disheartening to hear.

This tea however? Delicious! Sad that i missed out on the last 52 teas advent…i really thought orders had to be in, but i’ll live vicariously through variaTEA again this year lol.


There was one available earlier today. I don’t know if it still is but you could try to snag it. Also the burnout is really real. At least you are doing work because school hasn’t been happening the way it should for me.


The one that was available yesterday has sold – but – as it turns out, I do have one additional one – if you want it, Sil. If I don’t hear from you, I’ll be adding it to the website tomorrow. Let me know!

A bit of astringency. There is a bit of a coconut flavor to the vanilla, so it’s not my favorite vanilla black blend.

May 2020 Blend

I haven’t had the chocolatey goodness of Laoshan Black in ages! Mmm..

The two other black teas that make up this blend add a thin brown sweetness and a kind of bright oompf that’s hard for me to pinpoint or describe.

The Vanilla note on my second steep is slightly reminiscent of Comptoir Sud Pacifique’s Vanille Coco Perfume.. so a kind of creamy floral coconut vanilla (but thankfully far less overpowering)! I’m pretty sure there is no coconut in this blend, or brown sugar, or banana, or cream, but the brain is weird and the sweet vanilla finish is taking it on a spectacular journey. Second steep is good. Also, name of tea is accurate.
