This was a nice example of this type of blend with the grenadine being fairly mild and not to sweet and a more dominant cool vanilla that added creaminess and avoided the tendancies of vanilla flavouring tasting like alcohol, pancake syrup, or like candle scent. Like others have said it definitely has a jasmine element to the taste, that blended nicely with the vanilla. The ceylon base was heavier than I am accustomed with in this type of tea and was kind of biscuity/malty. This was a nice tea when I craved a vanilla flavoured black.I enjoyed this tea but for some wierd reason the mix of grenadine and malt was bringing back memories of the Monaco beer cocktails (grenadine and lager) I had during a heat wave one spring in Montpellier, France (fabulous city just to hang out in and a gateway into a gorgeous region of France). Not that the tea tasted of beer but the mix of malt and soft sweet fruit echoed each other in both beverages.
