Dry this smells pretty awesome…a really wonderful vanilla aroma. Once I started infusing it morphed a little. It was like a vanilla/cream combo with a bit of fragrant aroma sort of like a body spray or perfume type smell.
The taste is vanilla/cream and a little floral – almost like a jasmine-type taste eventho I really doubt there is any jasmine in this flavor but I’m picking up a little ‘sumpin’-sumpin’
After really trying to ‘think’ about the after taste of this I finally realized what it was…it was the black tea base – it’s strong and malty with hints of cocoa powder almost…which linger. There is a mysterious spec of smokiness, too, in the black tea base. With all of these tasting-features it makes for a unique combo – one that I doubt I have ever had in a vanilla flavored black tea before. That, in itself, I appreciate.
This is pretty good. Different than I was expecting, but good.
This is a decent vanilla black tea. Almost caramelly in smell and with a sweetish taste.
For the price and taste I think I’d probably keep Harney & Son’s Vanilla Black in the cupboard over this one, but if one were making an order from Mahamosa and wanted something to round it out, this is a good tea.
Made this again (hey, I liked it okay?!) but a bit differently so I thought it was worth it’s own tasting note.
For the first time ever I deviated from my milk-and-sugar routine with black tea and added chocolate soy milk and sugar. I liked it, but I don’t think I prefer it over the original way. Slight chocolatey flavour is nice but the soy taste that lingers is distracting and I can’t really taste the tea at all anymore.

Vanilla is one of my favorite flavors, so I had to try this one. :D The leaves are pretty generic-looking black tea leaves. It smells very sweet and vanilla custardy, but there’s also another smell that I’m having a hard time placing. I know, it reminds me of those vanilla-flavored calcium chews! Lol…
Brewed, it smells like vanilla custard, om nom nom! To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed by the lack of vanilla flavor in my cup. I’m not sure whether I didn’t get any vanilla bean or what, but it pretty much tastes like a mediocre black tea with a hint of vanilla at the end. :( Sad day.
Flavors: Malt, Tea, Vanilla
I kept a sample of this to try from the TTB to try, and found a little piece of vanilla bean in it. I love it when that happens! This smells so yummy, vanilla and creamy.
Taste wise, its nice and vanilla-y and creamy. I don’t remember much else, I seemed to have drank it all without realizing it while doing my homework. It’s good, but doesnt replace my favorite vanilla teas. A good contender though.
