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.
