What a delightful spin on the well-loved tea beverage found at that coffee shop. You know which one I’m talking about. Well, to be honest, I haven’t consumed many London Fog Lattes from that coffee shop (why go to a coffee shop and spend $5 on a tea beverage when I can stay at home and sip on better tasting teas for much less), however, I am willing to go out on a limb here and say that I prefer this to those London Fog Lattes.
Why? Well, first off, I like that I can choose how strong I make this, and how much steamed milk and sweetener to add. At the moment, I’m drinking this non-latte, and I think I like it even better like this than with the milk, because I’m able to enjoy the complex flavors of the tea, the bergamot, the vanilla AND the almond…
Which leads me to the second reason that I prefer this to the London Fog Latte at that coffee shop. This version from Téanzo 1856 is not only flavored with bergamot and vanilla cream, but also almond! And I love the sweet, nutty flavor that the almond brings to the party. It offers more creamy flavor … and this is so creamy and rich tasting that it really doesn’t need the steamed milk. It tastes so good straight up.
The black tea base is not as strong as some Earl Grey blends I’ve tried, but, it manages to hold its own and provide a pleasant background of black tea flavor that compliments the tangy notes of bergamot and especially the sweet notes of almond and vanilla.
This is the first tea I’ve tried from this new company, and it’s a winner as far as I’m concerned! If you like those London Fog Lattes, I think you’re going to love this London Fog from Téanzo 1856!
