Second time trying this blend, and I’m afraid I’m not any more impressed with it than I was the first time. I don’t get much vanilla out of it… just kind of a creamy average black tea blend, really. The “cream” leaves a strange taste on the back of my tongue (not just in this blend—I’ve had that happen with others as well) and that’s kind of undesirable. Overall, not something I can recommend. I’ll probably make it through the package I bought but it’ll take me a while. So sad, I had much higher hopes for this.
