It’s ready! & it’s delicious!!!! If you happen to have a good Chinese black (esp Fujian, if you like those chocolatey notes) tea that you love sans additions, a vanilla bean, and three weeks, I highly recommend you do this little project. Just cut a vanilla bean into 3 or 4 oz of the tea, wait 3 weeks, and Mmmmmmm. The vanilla bean mixes with the tea (which has it’s own chocolatey notes) and it’s all darkness and intoxication!!! Mmmm! That slightly leathery tarry true vanilla is almost too decadent to have in the light of day!
