Ohhh. Wow. I just don’t even know where to begin. I’ve been searching for the perfect straight up vanilla black tea for a while now, and I think this is it.

Such an unassuming name, description, and ingredient list for such an amazingly delicious tea! Just black tea and vanilla flavour. But I swear it tastes like little vanilla clouds on my tongue. Sweet, creamy, smooth vanilla flavour with a toasty black tea base and just a liiiittle bit of astringency that seems to keep it from getting too heavy.

Drinking it like I drink most black teas – hot with milk and sugar. It is so relaxing and satisfying and just what I needed after work.

This is my first cup from Della Terra; just picked up my order today. Everything smells pretty darn intoxicating. I love the great deals and giveaways they have for their customers too! A really nice touch, and will keep me coming back.

Oh boy, between this and my Butiki order I am drowning in new teas. 15 of them. It is the BEST. Shhh don’t tell my girlfriend that I smuggled more tea into the house. She would most certainly shake her head and click her tongue. I bet she’s going to love some of the ones from this order though, who can resist desserty blacks?

Thank you for the amazing review. We are glad you liked it! Made with real vanilla beans btw. :) You know, I’ve had this tea a hundred times and it never gets old. A great classic and one of my favorites! Oh, and don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone you’re a tea smuggler. ha ha

Sigh, another to add to the list for my next Della Terra order. (There isn’t even a list at this point because of all the new ones hahaha.)

I thought there must be some real vanilla in there for it to taste this awesome! The ingredients just list vanilla flavouring. It really is a classic though, so simple and comforting. And yes Amanda you have to try it! It’s even better than I had hoped. I’m a pretty huge vanilla fan though.

Oh man must get this.

pricks up ears O.O

Unfortunately research shows that geography and shipping issues puts it out of my reach. Oh well.

I’m glad you found your Perfect Vanilla Black, though. It gives me hope that mine is out there too. Somewhere…

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
