Brewed my last cup of this today. I did not think I would enjoy it as much as I have. I think it’s because the bitterness of the tea cuts some of the fakeness of the vanilla flavor, making it less foofy and more robust with almost a toffee undertone.

My sister, Em, gave this to me for Christmas this year. She gave us each teas that were supposed to match us, and I have to be honest, I wasn’t sure what she was thinking on this one. When I smelled it, the vanilla overpowered everything, with a sweetness that reminded me of potpourri. But, I gave it a try.
The first cup was good, as were the next few, but the strong, sweet vanilla continued to overwhelm the rest of the flavors. Until this evening, when I finally caught a whiff of cinnamon. I love cinnamon tea, and with the sweet vanilla this has become one of my favorite flavored teas. I can imagine it would be good as a tea latte.
Spicy sweet sipdown. My only sipdown for this Saturday since it was such a busy day.
Spicy vanilla deliciousness. Sadly, I can’t taste the ginger because the cinnamon overtakes it. This tea is quite sweet without adding any sweeteners. I may add a bit of milk to make it more decadent. I could use that this evening. Feeling quite exhausted. Is 8 pm too early to go to sleep?!?
I felt like making a foamy tea latte and decided to go with my newest addition. I’m surprised to taste cinnamon since it wasn’t listed in the ingredients and I’m a little disappointed not to taste more ginger. It seems like when cinnamon is in tea it overpowers every other flavor, so maybe that’s what’s happened. It has a nice creamy vanilla smoothness with it. I’m not going to rate this until I have it again. I want to give it a second chance to impress me :)
This was the sample tea today at the Komfort Tea Spot in Defiance. This was only my second time at this particular establishment.
The tea has a very nice gingerbread flavor. At first, I didn’t recognize that it was rooibos :) It was sweet on its own. I nearly bought some, but the store sales start at 2 ounces and I wasn’t sure I wanted that much of it. I may change my mind later and wish I had bought some.
