Not what I expected. When I opened the tin it smelled extremely of vanilla and caramel, the scent of black tea itself was virtually nonexistent. When brewed the smell was deep and strong, very perfume-y. It tasted of mostly caramel with a light vanilla aftertaste. I don’t mind the taste of caramel but it’s extremely overpowering and the taste of black tea itself simply wasn’t there.
If you like the taste of caramel, I highly suggest this tea. Otherwise, stay away.
Mike has enjoyed many a pot of tea in the famous Paris tea shops. In homage to the city he has created this blend, reminiscent of one of their most popular blends. It is a fruity black tea with vanilla and caramel flavors, and a hint of lemony Bergamot.
