From The Persimmon Tree Tea Company

A wonderfully smooth blend of organic black loose leaf tea and sweet vanilla bean. This creamy tea is great hot or cold with a spoonful of honey or rock sugar.

A really good vanilla flavored black tea. The black tea is robust and full-flavored and it marries well with the sweet, creamy vanilla notes. Slightly dry astringency. The dry leaf has some coconut and almond slivers but I really don’t get a lot of coconut or almond flavor from this. If I slurp the sip, the aeration does encourage these flavors to come forward a little but they are still quite slight and nearly indistinguishable.

Ho hum.

I’m debating a Persimmon Tree order and I remembered I had an old sample of this to try, which is great because I’d been considering adding it to my cart.

I won’t be doing so.

It’s not terrible, I mean I didn’t hate it, but it was only ok.
I appreciated the lack of chemical flavoring taste, and it really seemed to be more about the tea than the vanilla.

It was definitely a strong cuppa, and I’m wondering if I accidentally oversteeped it as it was quite bitter and astringent at the end. Left my mouth dry.

Not the vanilla tea for me!


Periwinkle is better. :)


Good to know, thanks! :)

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.

The smell of vanilla is strong with this one. I brewed for 3min @ 200F twice. Hot, there is something off in the flavor almost artificial – not my favorite vanilla. But, cold is much better. Unlike other vanillas which get lost cold, this one’s clean and very tasty.

Ordered a sample of this, and I have brewed it twice so far. When I opened the sample pouch, I immediately got a strong scent of vanilla, which was pleasant. I brewed the tea in my french press, since I am waiting for my infuser in the mail, and it worked well for this purpose.

My first cup had a really hearty vanilla flavor, almost like a vanilla dessert, and though I don’t add sugar to tea, I wanted to with this one. However, the tea was also very astringent, and I thought that it was likely due to me steeping it too long at just over 4 minutes. So the next time I made a cup, I tried steeping for 3 minutes… still flavorful, but still rather astringent. I am hoping it’s me and not the tea, so I will try again once my infuser comes in the mail, and see if it works better for me.
