I’ve been looking for a plain vanilla tea for quite a while now, and this just might be what I settle on. I found the vanilla pretty clean and natural tasting with absolutely no odd aftertaste. Perfect, and surprisingly hard to find. The base is a little bitter, but I think that’s my fault as they recommend a 205°F brewing temperature and I brewed at 212°. I’m not the biggest fan of vanilla teas as-is, but I like keeping them on hand to mix with earl greys or other flavored teas. The vanilla is pretty strong so I think it would stand up well to mixing.
