So I got 2oz of this tea from Persimmon Tree’s 20% off + free shipping sale a few weeks ago around the 4th. I couldn’t resist getting a few of their teas-one of the most awesome sales to me!
What appealed to me in this tea was the possibility that it would taste like vanilla mixed in with the assam. As it steeped I could mainly smell the black tea with hints of vanilla. But when it cooled down enough to drink the vanilla really hit me.
You can still taste the black tea of course, but it’s not really malty or anything too distinct.
This tea reminds me a lot of Harney&Sons, Vanilla Comoro which I adore!
It’s basically the more subtle version of Vanilla Comoro.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to get more of this tea, but if they have another awesome sale like before (fingers crossed for Black Friday/Cyber Monday) I’ll definitely purchase more. Another nice vanilla tea!
