Received from a friend in Italy. A perfectly serviceable vanilla tea, but the flavour of the vanilla is not quite potent enough to stand up to milk, which I always use for black tea. Perhaps it would be better without milk… I sweetened my cup with agave nectar and enjoyed this as a morning tea. It’s not as bracing as Earl Grey, so I would suggest as a mild, smooth afternoon tea. Good, but not as creamy as I had hoped.
