A small tin of this was a gift to myself for finishing my last Camp Nanowrimo fifty thousand word first draft. An excelent gift, as my writings are always powered by tea.
The balance of caramel and vanilla is quite good. The flavors are a malty vanilla and caramel, with maybe a touch of brown sugar? Yum. This isnt a light and playful vanilla, but a dark and serious vanilla, which is not very common, in terms of tea. Its like a wooly blanket on a frosty morning. I think this will be wonderful when the weather cools down, but its pretty nice now as well.

I agree! When I reviewed this one, I said it was a vanilla tea for adults. I have had this one on my mind lately.

Oh, this sounds wonderful. I find it so interesting that we associate a tea so strongly with the weather or time of year. I feel similarly about earl greys, too; I imagine I’d enjoy them significantly more in the colder months. And yes, I’m definitely putting this on my to-try list.

This sounds super yummy (wool blanket and all!)! I love serious vanilla (I think Harney’s Vanilla Black is a bit serious too).

keychange – whenever it rains I reach for the Earl Grey — it’s an instant reaction! :)

JacquelineM, glad I’m not the only one! It would be fun to one day try and organize our tea by things like weather, mood, occasion, time of day, etc.

My youngest says she really HAS to have Lapsang in cool weather!

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
