I might have rated this tea a bit higher, if it wasn’t so damn expensive! I was expecting more from a tea that was practically a dollar a bag and it did not deliver.
It’s essentially a basic, slightly bitter black tea. Some other people who’ve reviewed this tea referred to the vanilla flavour as delicate or an aftertaste but I think they’re just being generous! It’s completely non-existent! The tea smells a bit like vanilla, but I had to practically stick my nose in the hot water to notice it.
I tried it black and basic first, and then after reading a few reviews tossed in some milk and sugar to ‘bring out’ the vanilla. This did help! It made it drinkable and I’ll probably take the remaining tea bags to work and just treat it like a basic, black tea.
