A review of French Vanilla Tea by Bigelow

Date: 11/12/2012
Company: Bigelow Tea
Tea Name: French Vanilla
Tea Type/
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt. Leaf: cup/ black tea
Plucking Season:
Liquor Color: dark amber
Leaf Characteristics:

  1. Steepings

1st Steeping:
Water temperature: 200 Fahrenheit
Time: 4 minutes

Note: I had finished the last of some pu-erh tea earlier today and I wanted something like desert maybe so I reached this French vanilla tea which I have had on a few occasion. I fixed it very hot and steep for several minutes so that aroma of the vanilla been to be found in the tea is very pronounce and sweetens the cup even more so since it is hot.

I think since I had pu-erh tea earlier today this vanilla tea might have been another component in the flavoring of this pu-erh if needing to add more to it. Pu-erh are good dessert teas and vanilla is an extract used in many dessert recipes, I think this is what I am getting at in explaining my craving for vanilla tea perhaps.

Sorry if not making sense. Do I ever?

Bio

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.
