This tea truly is about what you would expect in terms of “vanilla” + “green tea” = “vanilla green tea.” The scent and taste are largely dominated by the vanilla, in my estimation. It produces a very nice amber color. I don’t terribly care for the vanilla however. It’s ok, but not really my, uh, cup of tea, so to say. My wife loves this tea, however, and it’s one of her favorites, so we keep it around and I do drink it from time to time.
