I thought I opened this prior to now but I was wrong. How did I let this get by me? Regardless…here is the review…It is a true black looking tea. The French Vanilla Aroma is strong prior to steeping, just starting to steep, and maybe a little bit after steeping a while. The barely-there French Vanilla Taste is ok with me as I am not a Vanilla Freak but if you are looking for boo-koo Vanilla this is not it. It’s a fairly strong over all black tea taste with a hint of french vanilla for a bagged tea but it’s really the Disney Memories that come thru on this tea, isn’t it!? All-in-All fairly good bagged tea.
