drank Vanilla Black by ESP Emporium
1489 tasting notes

Espemporium.com recently had a good sale, so I bought some, even though I haven’t bought anything from them before. I was crossing my fingers that they were worth the money, since I don’t have much to spend. Luckily, this one is delicious. Black teas with vanilla flavor is probably my favorite tea, so this one was an obvious choice among all of the amazing sounding teas ESPemporium has. The steep color is a medium brown. The scent is sweet. I wouldn’t necessarily say this is a typical vanilla flavor, but I’ve never really been handed genuine vanilla and been told “This is genuine vanilla”.. There is obviously many different flavors of vanilla depending on how authenitc it is, so it is hard to say with this one. But I think it’s a good flavor anyway. Definitely different. Smooth and sweet and a great pairing with the black tea, which is neither too strong or too light. Basically perfect enough to showcase the vanilla flavor. Actually, the flavor is almost so strong that I can’t really taste the black tea.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
