A great balance of the flavors – not too sweet, not too vanilla-y… I love the sweet vanilla aroma. Whether it’s a stressful day or I’m just trying to recover from asthma issues, I’ve found this tea to be soothing and a perfect way to settle down

I dunno what the other guys are on about. This tea is freaking delicious with a little sugar. The honey / vanilla flavors do blend together, but the blend that they make is really unique, really calming and totally full-bodied. I probably won’t buy it again (I gotta stop!), but for the time being, I’m really going to enjoy it!
So I’ve made a big, yet sad realization. When I was first taught to make tea my dad would always put milk and sugar in it, and it’s something I’ve gotten used to doing over the years (only with black and some herbal tea, however). But, I guess I’ve realized that in the quest for healthiness I really need to cut back on that. Especially the amount that I normally put in, which can be a lot sometimes!
This tea I started out drinking just straight with no additives, then once I thought to add honey and had it that way for a while, then after reading someone’s tasting note which suggested milk and sugar I tried it that way, and of course I liked it better that way. :/ I think I’ll have to cut back gradually. So I added one teaspoon of vanilla agave tonight. Still nice, with that subtle sweetness. I don’t usually find myself craving the sweet at night anyway, mostly it’s in my morning cup of black tea. Well, regardless, I’ll try my best!
Also this tea seems kind of lacking in flavour, like I understeeped or something. Six minutes should have been long enough. Hmm..
Eh, I’m coming to the conclusion that I just don’t like chamomile. I added a little splenda, and this was just sickly sweet. It also had an unpleasant smell that I can’t quite describe. It’s tastes like chamomile, and a hint of honey, no vanilla that I can detect. However, I’m drinking this because I have a sore throat, and it does seem to be helping.
While I usually shy away from “flavored” teas, whether real or lab created flavor, this vanilla flavor is just delightful and not too overwhelming. The tea is also not too sweet by itself, which is a mistake some companies make in their blends. The chamomile is the star here, and as it’s a sleepy time tea, it’s perfect. A hot mug of this tea, with a drop of local honey, just before bed in either the winter or summer is a great way for me to wind down before bed.
The first few whiffs brings a strong sweet vanilla scent; milky and creamy. As I steep the teabag for longer, the herbal chamomile blends in nicely with the vanilla. Steep longer for more of the chamomile goodness. I added honey to complement the sweet scent of vanilla.
This was one of the first teas I ever tried, and it’s still something I (somewhat guiltily, having long since switched to loose-leaf) reach for when I’m sick. The flowery chamomile notes come through strong in aroma, but the taste is all about the honey and vanilla – so much so that my ex-girlfriend to this day makes fun of me for liking “that cookie tea” so much.
From the dry tea bag I get a creamy, light citrus, vanilla, then chamomile scent.
Once steeped, the chamomile smells stronger to me (yay).
Tastes sweet (but not too sweet), I can taste some honey, chamomile seems pretty strong, and overall everything tastes creamy and smooth without any added milk.
Great night time tea!
