This is my favorite decaf tea, hands down. The vanilla is not overpowering, and the blend is perfect. A very pleasant warm drink in the evening.
The tea has a beautiful aroma that seems slightly toasty with subtle vanilla aroma. The rich flavor is round and multi-dimensional, easing into a nice finish. The burnt flavor gives a hint of bitterness, but not enough to be unpleasant. I usually add a bit of sugar in which case the slight bitterness totally vanishes. Tasted side-by-side with Upton Vanilla Decaf. This one is more dramatic, but I don’t like it any better. (but it costs 2/3 as much by the pound). I bought a pound.
