Dry, the tea has a very, very strong vanilla scent. Once steeped, however, the vanilla is toned down and the other scents peek through. The scent is not particularly vanilla-y or hazelnut-y, though – it’s more milky.

The taste is smooth and pleasant – again, not really vanilla or hazelnut in particular, just smooth and nice, with some vanilla and hazelnut more in the back of the mouth.

20-something year old university student aiming for a major in History and a minor in Archaeology. Started appreciating tea in 2009, and started loving loose leaf a year later.

Excellent! One of the best teas I’ve ever had. Clearly, it was delivered to us by the hands of the gods themselves. Would stockpile, order online, or kill to get more.

Good, and will keep stocked in my shelf if convenient.

Okay, nothing special.

Not very good. Would accept out of politeness, and then add too much sugar to mask the taste.

Bleh. I would rather drink mud.
