I purchased this tea on Thursday when I stopped by A Southern Season. We had it yesterday at our afternoon tea, but for some reason I didn’t love it. I had another cup this morning and did love it, maybe because I paid more attention to the steeping time. Anyways, without milk and sweetener it’s a strong black tea with just a really light hint of vanilla. With milk and sweetener it becomes rich, creamy vanilla. It’s more of a sugary dessert vanilla taste, rather than an authentic vanilla bean taste, but nothing artificial in the flavor. A nice dessert tea!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs.
-Dry leaves smell like rich and sugary vanilla. Tea liquor aroma is of vanilla and black tea.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium brown color.
-Strong malty flavor with a hint of creamy vanilla.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A malty cup with a creamy rich vanilla flavor.

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
