Taster’s Review:

Wow!  Vanilla!

There’s no mistaking the vanilla flavor here!

After tasting this Vanilla Flavored Black Tea, I wouldn’t have guessed that it was a Ceylon tea used for the base of this tea.  It is a rich tasting black tea, even a little hearty.  Yes, I’ve tasted quite a few Ceylon teas that are indeed rich in flavor, but, this tastes richer.  My guess would have been an Assam and Ceylon blend, because while this tea doesn’t have the malty tones of an Assam, it certainly has the solid flavor of an Assam.

But what impresses me even more about this blend from Mark T. Wendell is the vanilla essence.  This tea possesses a very strong vanilla flavor – which is evident not only in the taste but also the aroma.  It smells really yummy!

The flavor is sweet and creamy.  It has a cozy, comforting kind of flavor to it, while at the same time, it tastes totally indulgent, like a sweet, decadent dessert.

If you’re fond of vanilla teas, you should definitely try this one.  Or, if you’re just looking for a delicious, treat-like alternative to your standard breakfast tea, this one would certainly tickle your taste buds!  It is so incredibly YUM!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!

  1. Anyone who knows me, knows that Vanilla tea is one flavored tea that I do drink. It’s one of my favorite “good morning world” drinks. While trying to wake up, I hold onto my trusted old friend.
    Now, I’ve never heard of this one, so I checked out their site. While I think the sales pages could do with a little make-over, or modernizing, the tins look very nice. Wonder which wholesaler they use..or do they blend inhouse? Either way, your review has made me curious, thanks.

  2. Hi,
    A tea that’ll deliver a cup of decadence is our Vanilla Naturally Flavored Black Tea. Warm vanilla is paired with a lovely cream character to deliver a wonderful cup. Try it with a dash of sugar to bring out the sweet flavor. For the best brew, steep Vanilla Naturally Flavored Black Tea in water that has been brought to a rolling boil for 2-5 minutes. These teabags are English style, meaning they have no strings or tags.when blended with the natural vanilla and grenadine flavours, gives a wonderful smooth and unique flavour.
    Very nice blog.Me search for more blog of that type.Thanks for the blog post . Given a very useful information.
