So delicious! Hazelnutty, rich yumminess. I drink this with a bit of vanilla bean infused sugar, and it’s like a rich Starbucks drink. It’s thick tasting and rich, robust and reminiscent of coffee without the bitterness. Love the nuttiness and slight hint of chocolate. It’s not chocolatey, but there is something a little bit like chocolate there. One of my absolute favorite teas.

Vanilla bean infused sugar?! Where do you get that?? Yum!

You make it! Put some sugar into a container, slice a vanilla bean down the middle hotdog style so the little seeds inside are exposed, and stick it into the sugar. I left it in there until the sugar was finished. That reminds me, I’ve got to make some more.

Wow! That’s pretty inventive. Go you! :)

Bio

Recently graduated sociology student trying to decide what to do with her life.
I don’t drink tea every day, but I do love tea and trying out different flavours. My favorite is black tea, followed by white and mate teas. I enjoy rooibos and oolongs, but haven’t tried enough of them yet to determine how much I like them compared to other types. I don’t like straight green tea, but if it has a good flavour added to it I can enjoy it quite a lot.
Mostly I drink DavidsTea since its Canadian and they tend to have stronger teas and more interesting flavors than other places I’ve tried. I don’t care for what I’ve tried from Teavana for the most part; their teas seem weak and overpriced in general as far as I can tell. The exception is My Morning Mate, which is incredible.
My city has not a single specialty tea shop, so DavidsTea online ordering is my friend. I highly recommend their Perfect Mug. It really is perfect. Nice thin lip, large hand, larger than average mug without being too big, and I have it in clear so I can see the beautiful colours of my teas as they steep. The strainer that comes with it is my favorite because it doesn’t let any tea through, and its metal and dishwasher safe. Love it.
