3 Tasting Notes
TWG Bourbon Vanilla is caffeine-free rooibos tea from with quite perfumy and lasting vanilla flavors. Since teas made from real vanilla beans are rare, I’ve been curious to know the full ingredients of this tea, but so far it’s not available. “TWG vanilla” on the brand’s website doesn’t mean much. I am particularly interested in finding out the ingredients in pricey TWG teas because the brand is designed to attract luxury-brand junkies who often overlook the true content of the product. Despite it’s “old” image and branding, TWG is a very young brand since 2008 out of Singapore, specifically targeting the well-heeled in Asia. So far customers are enamored by the expensive-looking concept and fancy tearooms, and no one bothers to examine the tea itself.
