So I have been off tea for the past couple of days due to an awful canker sore that made swallowing extremely painful. It is finely healing and I got a new infuser so I had to have an afternoon cup of tea. This is nice and green tea! It is very green and grassy and I can taste a hint of apricot, but I am not sure I can taste the vanilla. Although it is a smooth cup which is probably the vanilla. Boy did I miss enjoying tea!!!
