From 52teas

Here’s an amazing malty Assam tea blended with organic vanilla bean pieces, cornflowers and natural French Vanilla flavors.

I have just three words for this:

De – li – cious!

The dry tea smells a little bit of alcohol and a little like licorice allsorts. The leaves are fairly entire and whole dried cornflowers are scattered throughout. The brewed tea smells indistictly sweet and actually a little bit more of cocoa and cream than vanilla. The Tea
tastes slightly creamy with slightly bitter base . This assam has dark
chocolate notes and it blends with the vanilla to taste like some lightly flavoured chocolate desert flavoured with vanilla. The body of the tea was a little bit thinner than I’d expect with an assam, and the finish wasn’t as smooth as I may like, but is still pleasant to drink. Tea resteeps decently well, but tastes more of cocoa than vanilla.

I sampled this tea from a TTB a day or two ago. I don’t know if I brewed it right, and I think I might have brewed it for longer than necessary, but it reminded me of oatmeal. I like vanilla teas, but I didn’t particularly enjoy this tea. I think I will give it another try later, since I could have just brewed it wrong, but I was hoping for more vanilla. I added a sweetener to it a bit too soon, so I think I’ll drink it unsweetened next time.

This tea tastes just like French Vanilla should. It is creamy vanilla and reminds me of French Vanilla ice cream. I brewed this last night and when I tried it hot, it was too strong, too astringent. I put the rest in a pitcher to chill overnight in the refrigerator. When I tried it this morning, I decided it still needed to be diluted some. Now it’s perfect. It is smooth, creamy, with a strong vanilla taste, and minor astringency. I just had to get the parameters correct for it to shine.

Orthodontic visits suck…braces moreso. So while I’m sitting at home nursing my wounded ego and displeasure at being forced into wires and rubber bands and other indignities I’m drowning my sorrow in tea.

This one is actually…really quite good. The assam is solid without being pushy and there’s a very generous layer of vanilla smoothed over the top. Each sip is simple and really well-balanced, so if you’re not looking for complexity this is a great tea.

And the flavours hold up well to being forgotten and left to cool, so I guess that’s something. :D

Tea #11 from Traveling Tea Box C Round 2
I’m always on the lookout for a good vanilla black tea. So far top of my list is Cafe Vanilla by Della Terra, but I’m not opposed to trying others. So I couldn’t pass this one up.
The scent in the bag isn’t ‘in your face’ vanilla, but it’s there. It’s kinda more subtle/muted, though I don’t know if that’s because of whatever flavorings they used or just because it’s down to the last 3ish tsp in the bag. Lol.
As much as I wanted to make a giant mug of this in anticipation of awesome vanilla-ness, I restrained myself to just 1 tsp for 8oz to save it for someone else to try.
Brew smell wise it’s vanilla-y, but you can tell the black base through it so that it’s kinda just lingering there. Taste wise, well, it’s certainly not an assertive vanilla taste. I definitely get more of the base than I do of the vanilla, though it’s there lingering around the edges. I’m almost wondering if I underleafed this since there’s a watery-ness to it.
A bit of truvia brings out the vanilla a smidge more, but I didn’t want to add too much since I didn’t want the sweetness right now.
It’s also been sitting a bit on a heating plate (one of those cup warmers) and it’s gotten a touch bitter. Not quite undrinkable, but just about, which is unfortunate.
So I guess I haven’t found a new fav vanilla tea. The search goes on. Lol!

i wonder if this was “contaminated” by the lupicia melon teas in the package with it. this is another one from jump62359 and one i’ve wanted to try for a bit. while this has a dsitinctly vanilla flavour to it, there’s also the hint of melon in the back ground. Overall i’m quite enjoying this one, but i’ll let it sit for a little before i have the rest of it haha

Final Count: 161 End of the month and i’m 31 teas behind my goal for this month and 21 teas up from last month. On the plus side, i think i can get down 10 or so teas right off the bat on the weekend. So i’m going to aim for 130 (april’s goal) by May 10 and then go for 120 by the end of May….just because.


Haha I will try to match you, just for fun so I guess I better get sipping :P


Sounds like fun haha I have one order coming in so far for May too….


Ahh I’m so sorry that the melon kinda got to the other teas! Dang. I should’ve double packaged that one.


Oh don’t worry…..melon is delicious!

I just remembered that I have teas coming from Life in Teacup, so my numbers will go up before they go down, hahaha

Took this from The Teeny Tiny Tea Box :)

It’s good, but I definitely had this steep for much longer than it should have so it turned a bit bitter, but it’s fine! It’s drinkable :)
