Let me start by saying that I loooove a good vanilla black tea. If I make a pitcher of it iced I’ll down the whole thing in several hours and since this blend is decaf, I can do that without too much worry. It’s equally nice as a steaming hot brew at any time of day. The flavors of this come through clear and rich and distinct, not dusty or bitter like some of the cheaper vanilla blacks. You’ll miss this when it runs out… it’s comforting in the way that that big, comfy, well broken-in arm chair at your favorite indie coffee shop is comforting.
