This is another unique gem from the Tropical Tea Co (TTC) March Madness sale. I’m a little bit behind on my logging… we had another box from them waiting when we got home from shopping earlier. We tried three, all good, and I’m just now getting around to posting a tasting note, with just a teensy tiny bit of tea left in my cup!
This tea is very, very good. Though, the green tea is completely hidden by the vanilla. I absolutely love vanilla. I could have a vanilla house, with a vanilla door, and a little vanilla puppy laying next to my vanilla slippers. And in said vanilla-villa, this tea would fit perfectly.
What’s interestingly lacking in this tea… is the green tea. I don’t necessarily find that bad, I just find it odd. The vanilla flavoring is smooth, it doesn’t taste fake, it doesn’t taste forced, but it is really the only taste that I discern. I’d expect this from a vanilla white tea, not from a green.
At any rate… this is a very smooth, very enjoyable, creamy, luscious vanilla tea, that I am going to very much savor. I only wish we would have tried this with our first box from TTC, so that we would have bought more of it from our second. But seeing as how I’ve received roughly five pounds of tea from them in the past three weeks, it will probably be a little while before i order any more. I haven’t tried others teas with this flavor combination (or flavor obfuscation, more like!), but I’d be happy to continue purchasing this from TTC for… well… ever. Missy wouldn’t let me stop ordering it if I tried.
