This is a bold vanilla (and other mysteries)-flavored tea. And its flavors are strong enough to have an imperial air…

At first, it seemed slightly astringent (maybe due to the assam base), but once I added some sugar… Boy did these flavors bloom! I could detect vanilla- a lot , caramel a little bit, and even some chocolate. Somehow, these flavors combined into something else altogether!

Next time, I will try this w/milk and it is definitely strong enough to handle it…

Bio

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
