The Teacup – Provence Vanilla Rooibos

October 19, 2006


Today’s cup of comfort (and I say that literally, as my week has been quite an ordeal) is an herbal blend that I picked it up at The Teacup when we were in a few weeks ago, and it’s a big hit here at the office. Here’s the description from the web site:

Customer requests have a huge impact on the Teacup’s tea list and this tea is a perfect example. After being asked time and time again for more rooibos teas, the Teacuppers spent months developing what we think is the perfect vanilla-scented rooibos blend. Blended with not only the famous red leaf from South Africa and vanilla, but touches of lavender and chamomile and just a hint of hazelnut. We think you’ll find this the smoothest, most pleasing cup of rooibus tea you have ever had. A Teacup special, dedicated to all our customers that take the time to let us know what they are looking for.

When he opened the canister, I had a wave of spicy vanilla wash over me – with another pleasant, familiar note next to it, the source of which eluded me. After talking with Brett, we identified it as the hazelnut, which makes this blend especially decadent and warm. Brewing produces a deep mahogany color, and the smell remains intoxicating.

The taste is obviously not as sweet as the scent, but still rich and smooth. Though it’s not necessary, the slightest touch of sweetener really brings out the vanilla if that’s what you seek. The sprinkling of lavender is perfect, and that’s not an easy balance to reach since that tiny purple flower can have a loud, sharp voice. The rooibos is a strong, semisweet undercurrent that ties everything else together perfectly.

This one is especially amazing in cool weather, but I can see it bringing much joy on a summer evening. It’s naturally decaffeinated, which makes it great for a late night treat.

The Struggle of Making Content Interesting & A Few Unhelpful Phrases

May 18, 2019 0 Comments

As someone that has done a fair amount of content on tea, I have a lot of mixed thoughts on the way information is passed. With tea reviews or discussing a specific tea I have struggled with the question: how to talk about an individual tea or tea in general in an interesting or useful way.. Whether you like or dislike TeaDB episodes largely depends on whether you enjoy watching two particular people drink and binter. This is fine enough and it is certainly fun for Denny & I to create, but I’ll also agree with the sentiment that it’s not necessarily the most substantive way to review a tea in depth. There’s some signal but there’s also a lot of noise. Writing about a specific tea also isn’t easy and I think is actually very difficult to execute in a way that is actually consistently interesting or useful for people. Most people just want to know if you liked or didn’t like a specific tea. Making something that piques interest beyond that is a challenge and even if you don’t like them a place like Mei Leaf has succeeded in creating content that really does engage their viewers. You also have to consider that the majority of people have not had the tea or are even unfamiliar with the basic taste profile (i.e. Denny & I describing a traditionally stored pu’erh, when the audience has never had one).. Here are some phrases I dislike and hear frequently enough that I find them unhelpful and sometimes even counter-productive.
