From Townshend's Tea Company

A crisp black tea from Sri Lanka with the added flavor of smooth vanilla bean. A gentle everyday hot tea, or a smooth and quenching iced tea.

Yummy!

Townshend’s Tea appears to be remodeling their website, because when I went there I could not find this tea … and the website looked quite different from what I remember. I hope that the missing few teas is only a temporary thing, because I don’t see my favorite Pear and Pomegranate tea on there yet.

But this tea is quite nice too. The vanilla is strong. A good tea to represent Mt. Hood which is usually covered in snow, one of our most picturesque views in this area is looking toward Mt. Hood. Some days it appears to be floating.

A nice, pleasant tea. I might like the black tea base to be a little more rounded, perhaps a blend instead of one tea type (I suspect this is a Ceylon because it’s not particularly bold. It’s delicious, but just not as sturdy as some other teas that could have been selected for a base). But it is still quite a nice afternoon tea, and I suspect it also makes a heck of a latte.

Mt. Hood is lovely. Mt. Baker is a good view too.

I love your post on this! Mountains, tea shops… I am jealous. Cannot wait to move and see Mt. Rainier again! Haven’t been further south than that but I will travel all over the pacific northwest once I get there.
Hopefully that tea site comes back to full working order too.

Yum! The vanilla is very strong all around—before and after brewing. It smells a lot like a really plump vanilla bean. The black tea is a perfect match for the vanilla flavor. The description says that the black tea is from Sri Lanka, so I assume it’s a Ceylon. I’m used to Assam black teas, and I enjoyed this one thoroughly with a sprinkle of sugar and a dash of milk. It was even tasty on the second brew. I’m looking forward to trying it iced.
