Vanilla is one of my favorite flavors for teas, there is just something about the sweet, sumptuous flavor of vanilla that goes together so well with tea. The creaminess of the vanilla notes eliminate the need to add milk to the tea – and I don’t like to add dairy to my teas if I can keep from it – but I do like that creamy, rich flavor and texture of a latte and the vanilla flavoring in a tea does that without the addition of dairy!
However, I have learned through my many tea experiences as a tea reviewer that not all vanilla teas are created equal. Some are more rich and creamy than others, and lets face it, when someone goes for a vanilla tea, isn’t that what they’re really hoping for? That creamy, decadent, rich vanilla flavor?
This tea definitely serves up that creamy, rich flavor I want from a vanilla tea … and then some! Absolutely one of the best vanilla black teas I’ve tasted in a while. I think that if I were to change anything at all about this, I think I’d like a bit more dimension in the black tea base, it is a good black tea, but, I’m finding the backdrop it provides for this tea to be just a little one-dimensional. It is tasty enough, sure, but, it seems to be content to let the vanilla do all the work here.
That said, I am still really loving this tea for its strong vanilla flavor, and it is one I’d recommend to others who are looking for a strong tasting vanilla tea.
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!
