About a year ago, I tried this tea, and hated it. Absolutely hated it. It was bitter, had no vanilla, cream, blackberry anything. I knew I had steeped it wrong, somehow some way. Now, after many cups of various teas later, I am educated on tea and how to make it, what makes it steep wrong, etc.

I made this in a teapot, let it freely float in the water, which was just under boiling, and steeped it for 3 minutes exactly. Then strained it in a teacup.

I am happy to say this is perfect. PERFECT.

There is the sweet, slightly sharp taste of blackberries, and the creamy taste of vanilla. The mouthfeel is a creamy and sweet, and I love this tea. I can’t describe it any more than amazing.
