drank Vanilla black tea by Zen Tea
1060 tasting notes

I received this sample with my recent ZenTeaLife order. This is a tea I’ve almost ordered many, many times, so I was happy to be able to try it. Yay for free samples!

Oh, this is good. If you’re someone who likes vanilla tea then give this one a shot. Lots of vanilla bean flavor. Kind of that richer fuller vanilla taste that coats the tongue. High yummy factor. As always, the base tea is a good one. It holds its own with the vanilla. It’s strong but not bitter or astringent. Good grief this is good. I’m thinking this could easily work its way into my normal morning tea rotation.

I still have quite a bit of Starry Night from Art of Tea, so I don’t think I’ll be ordering another vanilla tea too soon, but when I am ready to order it’ll be this one.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
