I apologize for not remembering who sent me this sample!
The unsteeped dry leaves of this tea look old, dusty, and broken. I brewed it for 3 min at boiling. It’s just ok. It’s hard to judge it without comparing it to Harney’s Vanilla Comoro, which I seem to be drinking non-stop lately. This tea is clearly inferior to the Vanilla Comoro. The vanilla flavor in this tea is more like vanilla milkshake and has a slightly chocolately flavor, as if the milkshake was made with soy milk (not a bad flavor, just not what I want in vanilla tea). The oolong is completely lost in the flavor.
