DTT order #2 has landed. Still searching for the perfect vanilla black.
The smell of the dry tea is a soft, creamy vanilla. It smells like quite a natural vanilla, not at all perfumey or like overpowering factory-made vanilla icing.
But unfortunately, the taste lets me down a little bit. Too much sweetness and not enough vanilla, in my opinion.
I wonder if it would make a good cold brew? Like a sweetened black iced tea. That just may work.
PS: Had a jug of this cold steeped waiting for me this morning and I was right, it’s much better this way. It’s creamier and more flavourful. It tastes like vanilla toffee.
