I am continually surprised by the fact that I actually kind of like this tea. Despite the presence of a billion things to make it cloying and too sweet, somehow the black tea base still manages to assert itself. That said, the taste isn’t really anything special, just a “general sweet things” sort of taste. And, really, the vanilla kind of dominates the other flavors, although I DO get some caramel.

The further down the cup I get (and the colder the tea gets) the more I get the caramel. It’s DEFINITELY dominating now. As before, I begin to suspect that I am becoming spoiled by Really Good blends from other companies. Which is annoying because other companies tend not to be budgeted for graduate students. Sadface!

On a happy note, that was the last of this, so that’s another empty container! Yay!

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
