drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea
355 tasting notes

Yuck. The black tea used in this totally ruins it. It’s abrasive and somewhat bitter, and the vanilla is only present in the aftertaste. I didn’t even get the pretty vanilla smell that everyone else has commented on.

Another one dislikes the Vanilla Bean! :( I feel like vanilla is SO hard to nail in tea. Sorry the black wasn’t even up to your liking, either!

Haha, it’s crazy how similar the reviews are for this. SpecialTeas has a Madagascar vanilla blend that’s pretty good, but it’s too sweet for me. I wish I could find something that was like that, but more mellow.

Auggy sent to me Colonille by SerendipiTEA that was really mellow and lovely. I have a review of it, as do Auggy and takgoti. It’s a gentle, subtle type of vanilla, not overly sweet, and mixed with an almost raw cocoa taste that comes from the Vietnamese black base. It’s super-good!

I ♥ NewYorkCiTEA

I think it’s pretty much unanimous among Steepsterites on this one.
