Apricot Vanilla Creme from Tazo Tea. . . .

Apricot Vanilla Creme, a white tea by Tazo, one that I had never seen prior to the arrival of a traveling teabox. My past experiences with Tazo have been nothing special but this particular teabag has me intrigued. I blame the “creme” since that’s one of those trigger words that catches my eye. “Vanilla” is another. So when I saw this, I knew it was a tea I wanted to try.’ I opened the teabag and the smell of stone fruit and vanilla filled the air. As per the recommended steeping parameters on the teabag, I steeped this for 3 Read More

Vanilla Mint from Golden Moon. . . .

Vanilla and mint teas are an awesome combination. There are so many options out there and typically they utilize peppermint to mix with a vanilla black tea. Vanilla Mint by Golden Moon Tea is a little different since they use a black/green base with vanilla bean and spearmint. I brewed this as a latte because vanilla mint lattes are awesome. This is no exception. The creaminess of the milk brings out the silky vanilla bean flavor. That makes it the flavor you notice first, though it slowly melts to a clear mint flavor. The mint lingers in the aftertaste and Read More

Heavenly Cream from Sloane. . .

One sip of this tea and you’ll know why they named it heavenly cream. It’s like drinking a cloud; if clouds had flavors. Boy wouldn’t that make for interesting rain? Ha! Anyway, this tea has a subtle black base which is complemented very well with the bits of bergamot flavors and the incontestable cream and vanilla impressions. For those of you who like Earl Grey but would prefer a stronger creamy presence this is the one for you. Here’s the scoop! Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy:  Sloane Fine Tea Merchants Description A divine tea, full of creamy richness and Read More

Vanilla Bean from Storehouse Teas. . . . . .

I love vanilla in teas. I feel like if I was a tea-blender, i’d probably add a dash of vanilla to just about everything. I feel like it just gives this yummy warmth and sweetness to the blends and it also goes well with just about everything else! There is a difference between regular old “vanilla” and “vanilla bean”. Vanilla bean, in my experience, tends to be just a tad bit stronger and richer. When I saw this one in my little sample box I immediately scanned the ingredient list. I was wondering whether this would just be plain vanilla Read More

Vanilla Crème SereniTea from Cup of Love. . . . .

This is a lovely black tea with vanilla/cream flavoring. It’s beautiful, with real nuts and flower petals inside. It feels SO ENGLISH and DECADENT. Like you’re at your lovely aunt’s home in London drinking out of real teacups, not some geek mug at your desk. You want to flip your pinkie out and take up embroidery. As I was sipping this, I thought “wait… haven’t I tried this?” So I did some research, and I had. I tried a few samples from Vampyre Teas back in the day because — obviously — Vampyre Teas. Come on, guys. Vampyres. My friend Read More
