The only thing that would make this better is if the vanilla was actually slightly less strong. I enjoy it, steeped extra long / hot so it’s very strong, and adding milk/cream and sugar – but it’s almost too sweet, even if I add less sugar, because it’s a sweet flavor, not the actual sweetness. Still, very fantastic.
…fun tip: brew this half-and-half with Bigelow’s raspberry black tea. It tastes like gloriousness in a cup.
