1.5 tsp in 10 oz water.
I just love how you get the vanilla flavor FIRST, and black tea as an afterthought.
It’s so smooth and the mouthfeel is perfect- this is a thick tea even without additives. It is definitely a morning starter drink, which is great, because that’s how I’m drinking it!

I love this one too. It is so different than most vanilla teas. Also wanted to let you know your order will be shipping today. Thanks again!

Thank you so much! I just saw the picture you sent me and did a little squee…I can’t wait!

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Awesome! It has been shipped you should see it early next week. :-)

This is my very favorite tea from Frank.

It is quite good, especially the way I had it today with the longer steeping time. How long do you normally steep it for?

I am generally very cautious when I steep Assam teas, because I find them to be too bitter when I oversteep. I usually go for 2 1/2 minutes to 3 minutes with this tea (and most Assams!)

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
