I steeped this tea in my single serving cup that has a built in infuser. I put about 1.5 tsp of the leaves into it and let it steep for 5 minutes so I can get the maximum of flavours.
Packaging: The tea arrived in a tall and skinny air tight container. Great to keep the tea fresh for a longer period of time. I actually prefer this style tin over others because it doesn’t take up too much room in when storing it away. From what I saw, it doesn’t have the size on the label, but after looking it up online I believe it is 2.5 oz. It’s a standard label with a very appealing look to it. Standard steeping instructions are on the back as well.
Smell: Strong but not overpowering for both – before steep and after. The scent fills the air the moment you open the air tight container. I can distinguish the sweet vanilla aroma from the the beans, as well as the hint of coconuts. Definitely filled my kitchen with an awakening scent.
Taste: I would say this blend had a great smooth and calming flavour. Again, the vanilla bean hints are a perfect touch. It wasn’t too bold, which I was surprised about because I expected it to be for sure. It’s hard to not dislike this creamy blend. The flavours all taste real, and not artificial. I also especially enjoyed that the tea leaves weren’t too small. A great size that was able to not sneak through my infuser. For those that enjoy vanilla blends, this will hit the spot nicely. I had this tea in the late afternoon with a bit of milk and sugar as a dessert tea but I would definitely recommend this for a perfect wake up brew in the morning (minus the milk + sugar).
First Sip Thought: “I must make this into a latte next time!”
I can’t not give this tea a perfect score…I’m in love!!
