So vanilla, fragrantly vanilla. And creamy black tea. It smells so good. I wasn’t very happy with their customer service, yet all their teas seem amazing. Gah.
The taste is lovely, but not quite as good as the smell. I’m thinking I may have steeped it too long at just over 3 minutes. The black base really comes through but it overtakes the vanilla just a wee bit too much. I’ve got more to experiment with so I’ll adjust the steeping time next round.
The vanilla does come out more as it cools.
Update April 20/13: The second steep is also pretty good. I find the vanilla more present, while the black is not quite so strong. It’s quite nice.
