I like this tea straight up. I’ve found that it’s best brewed @ 200F with a tsp or just over for 3 min. Too hot or too long brings out some unpleasant notes in the base black tea.
When it’s good, this tea is very good. The cream and slight vanilla notes are delightful, it needs no sugar or cream because it tastes like it’s in there already. There’s no artificial or chemical aftertaste like I’ve experienced with other vanilla/cream teas.
All around, an excellent post-breakfast tea.
