Yum! The vanilla is very strong all around—before and after brewing. It smells a lot like a really plump vanilla bean. The black tea is a perfect match for the vanilla flavor. The description says that the black tea is from Sri Lanka, so I assume it’s a Ceylon. I’m used to Assam black teas, and I enjoyed this one thoroughly with a sprinkle of sugar and a dash of milk. It was even tasty on the second brew. I’m looking forward to trying it iced.

I am a librarian who loves Broken Social Scene (and a good cup of tea). I tend to prefer non-fruity black teas like Assam with milk and sugar and Japanese green teas like matcha, genmaicha, sencha, or hojicha without milk or sweetener. I also enjoy a good bubble tea. Tea service at a tea room is one of my favorite indulgences.
