Tardis Eleven Geronimo from Tea and Absinthe. . . . .

Okay, guys I have a confession to make. I have no idea what the name of this tea is referencing. I don’t know if I just live under a rock or if I am too young for the reference, so it took me a while to gain interest in trying this tea. But today I was digging through my little tea sample box and wanted to try something different. I did a google search to see what this tea was all about and on the company’s description it mentions vanilla custard- that is one of my favorite flavors!!! So I brewed myself up a cup and here is what I thought….

This tea was definitely creamy vanilla. I could smell it as I poured the hot water over the leaves. It reminded me of a fresh baking vanilla cake or vanilla bean ice cream. I added just a bit of agave for some sweetness and it really accentuated the vanilla custard flavors of this black tea. The tea itself was smooth, but definitely strong! However I was kind of in the mood for a strong black tea, i’m really tired and it is a rainy day. I always have a strong craving for sweets, and this tea really hit the nail on the head. The vanilla and custard flavors last on the palate long after the sip is gone. I bet that this tea would actually be a great base to mix other teas with, for example maybe a peach or apricot tea would go well with it because of the delicious and creamy vanilla qualities it has. I definitely will be playing around with my remaining sample because this was a good one!

Hi, my name is Sophia. I am a first time mother to a beautiful little girl who will be 1 in July 2017. I spend my days at home with her and when I get a minute to myself, I usually spend that time making, drinking, or researching tea! My love for loose leaf tea is relatively new. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my mother (a tea addict herself) brought me to DAVIDsTEA. I enjoyed a cup of their Coconut Cream Pie Oolong and was instantly hooked! Since then, my addiction has grown to fill entire cabinets, and shows no sign of stopping.

I am the creator of the Facebook group CommuniTEA where we have one big tea discussion. It is a great group for those new to the tea-world. I feel strongly about spreading the joy of loose leaf tea. I like making instructional videos and helping those that are new to the art of tea-making so that they, too, can share in the happiness that tea brings. I am excited to see where this hobby takes me and I will continue to spread the joy!
