Vanilla Bean black tea, a deep blend of black loose tea leaves with Madagascar vanilla, conjures up images of inhaling the heady aroma of wild vanilla as you hike the tropics near Mt. Maromakotro. A full-bodied and fruity cup, Vanilla Bean, a blend of Ceylon and China black teas, makes a deeply satisfying impression.

I really love Vanilla Bean, apparently more than a lot of other folks. I think the vanilla blends perfectly with pretty good black tea, and am hard-pressed to think of a finer version for black tea. It tastes very natural, unlike some other teas that often rely on vanilla flavoring rather than vanilla beans.
I didn’t find the vanilla flavour pronounced enough the first time I tried it. It’s nice with milk and a couple lumps of sugar. It’s been awhile since I had the Lipton vanilla, but I have a vague memory of having preferred that one. This one is double the price of that, too. I dunno. It’s fine. Might buy it again.
I tried this because my sister raved and raved about it, saying how it was one of her favourites.
I like vanilla teas, as you might have noticed from my other reviews, so there was no hesitation on my part to give this a spin.
Well. I was underwhelmed. It feels a bit weak compared to other vanilla black teas I’ve had. In fact, when I added milk and sugar, it washed out the vanilla taste.
It wasn’t horrible, but I’ve definitely had better. Just a standard vanilla black with a higher price tag, sorry to say.
This smells more like chocolate than vanilla before brewing. It makes a nice dark amber cup and loses most of the chocolate smell and gains some vanilla but not as much as I had thought. It does have a vanilla flavor but it’s almost an afterthought. I think this might require some playing with as other people have suggested.
The first time I tried this, I thought it was an alright black tea with very bland vanilla flavor, almost more of a scent than a flavor. Then I realized I should probably sugar it up to bring out the flavor, and that worked. A fair amount of honey turned this into a delicious vanilla drink, though I don’t know if it’s a good tea per se. Not what I’m looking for when I want a cup of tea, but it might make a good iced tea.
Mighty Leaf’s silk tea bags hold a large amount of long leaf tea and have the space to let them steep, so that’s nice.
