I made some chocolate chip/pecan/walnut/coconut blondies for a coworker’s birthday, and saved 2 at home for our dessert tonight. Gotta bring out the French Breakfast for this! Very yummy pairing. That slight smokiness and touch of vanilla works with all sweets! I also have a test tomorrow, so the black tea will help keep me up to study :)

Well, it’s a good thing I got the tiny teapots from Samovar, because I broke my regular one last night. Rather than going back to mugs and infusers already, I decided to make a little cup of this.

From JacquelineM, this brews up a lovely dark orange. It smells like a straight up Ceylon, at least when hot. In the flavor, I’m actually getting more smoke than vanilla. Adding milk brings out the creamy flavor a little, but this still isn’t quite what I was expecting from the description and the scent.

2nd steep might be better than the first, for me: still nothing I’d describe as vanilla, but rounder, more harmonious flavors. It almost tastes like a blend, with some Assam and/or Keemun in there. I am getting the chocolately notes everyone else mentioned now. Very tasty.

Oh no on the broken pot! The casualties of brewing can be very sad.


Very sad. Even worse, it was a gift! But luckily, the Bee House pots are neither rare nor terribly expensive, so I’ll probably get another one at some point.

The leaves were very pretty with their golden colors mixed with brown.

I am not sure if the chocolate was a cross contaminate or if it was supposed to smell chocolaty?

Too bitter for my tastes, maybe I should have done less time? I brewed it at the lower end of the suggested range.

The vanilla is too subtle in this tea for me.

Post-Steep Additives: +1 tsp German rock sugar, made no impact
+ splash of almond milk, no change

Resteep: 4 min, not bitter (1 tsp German rock and splash almond milk) I liked this steep much more than the first, but it was a little on the weaker side, and no vanilla.

I am giving it the rating for the resteep, the first steep would have been lower. If I bought this I would plan to steep it shorter, and immediately add sugar and milk.

I always have this one with milk and sugar. Now that I made my own vanilla tea, I think this one is going to fall out of favor with me! When we meet for tea I will give you some of my vanilla assam (and some berry rooibos from Samovar – I think you’d love that one!!)


squee, this makes the week after next even more exciting!

I saw your custom vanilla tea – I keep saving my vanilla beans for making homemade chai, it’s my long term tea project, but i always get too tired and lazy :( i need to kick my own butt to do it sooner or later, then maybe i’ll have an extra bean to try making my own!

Although I think this is a tasty black tea…I’m not getting the hint of vanilla the other reviews have noted…it is quite smooth tho…almost velvety. I won’t hold that against it…it’s good regardless.
