Thought I would start my morning with a black tea. It is my first day off (from everything) in a long time. I should use it to study. I feel what better way to wake up with tea :). I didn’t care for this at first. I had put the whole sample in my PerfecTea maker and steeped for 3 minutes. I thought it was bitter. I added a little sugar and continued to drink it. About halfway through my mug I decided that it wasn’t bad. I don’t feel that I personally tasted the vanilla but whatever flavors I did taste worked very well together.
