Another one of the past weekend’s excursions was to the christening of my very tiniest cousin. Cake and tea (and coffee obviously) were offered as part of the menu for the day, and since I’ve recently taken quite a shine to vanilla flavoured teas, I decided to give this one a go when I saw it.
That was a mistake.
It was not really all that nice. It wasn’t that leather-y vanilla bean flavour that I’ve found I liked in the others. It was synthetic, sweet and creamy in a rather cloying way rather than creamy in a smooth way.
It frankly made me wish I had never tried it in the first place, and the only upside was the very classic Lady Grey that I chose to chase it down with. Now that was a pleasant tea.
