This tea confuses me. As I waited for it to steep, I stuck my nose in the leaves [again] to inhale the wonderfully vanilla scent. It’s subtle, but it’s there. And I will pick up on any hint of vanilla, anywhere. It’s a pretty awesome flavor.

First couple sips I deemed it “tasty.” The vanilla is still a bit subtle, but it’s enough to drown out any of the black tea aftertaste I’m bound to experience. Even the black tea itself isn’t so bad. [Side note: as I’m sitting here with my cup by the keyboard, the vanilla scent still infuses the air. Better than any scented candle, that’s for sure.]

Despite all that, once it cooled down from burn-your-tongue temperature, it was… all right. I don’t hate it, but I’m not standing in line to buy more. But I’ll probably make it again at some point for scent alone.
