Just bought a cheap stove kettle, but no thermometer so I figured going with a black tea would be safe — picked this out of my sampler box.
The smell is overwhelmingly vanilla, before and after steeping. But there is still an obvious generic black tea smell to it. I’m debating adding milk and sugar, but i’ll try it first without. I’m not used to flavored black teas.
First sip. hmmm. i dunno. not really tasting much, and what i’m tasting i’m not liking. I guess skim milk + sugar is the way to go. Ah there we go, thats the typical black tea taste i love so much. The vanilla flavor still tastes a bit weird to me, but the tea isn’t /that/ bad. I’m not a huge fan of vanilla flavored things. Not much else to say, because I just don’t really know what to say about it.
Tasty and sweet because of the vanilla, but i’d like more of a black tea kick to it.
