The Vanilla Heather blend is by far the lightest tea I’ve made. I like to say that it feels like drinking cotton candy made of sweet flowers while floating on a cloud. And that just makes me happy!

One of my favorite tea shops right now is Astrolo Tea, a different kind of tea shop. This tea shop not only has an amazing selection of teas, but they are handcrafted and made with care and attention like you can’t believe! The owner is 100% dedicated to her product and her customers. Not only is she an amazing tea creator, she is an astrologer as well! So talented.
But on to this tea. This tea is a unique blend of Assam, heather flowers and vanilla-all organic. There is a beautiful sweetness that envelopes you when you first take a whiff of the dry leaf mixture. I scooped out a serving and set up the Breville One Touch on a black setting. There are nicely laid out directions on the package.
Took a few moments for the tea to cool off and then took my first sip. Oh. . .My. . .Goodness!!! I am going to be re-ordering this one and soon. This is a gorgeous combination of black tea, sweet vanilla, and floral notes. I can’t ask for a better tea right now with my constant craving of floral teas. There is a nice full bodied feel to this tea and an ever so slight astringent background. I can’t drink this tea fast enough to satiate the craving it stirred up. So very good. I love how the floral and vanilla work so well together. Neither overpower the other and all the ingredients combine to create this gorgeous taste. Another very well done tea from Astrolo Tea!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
