This has to be one of my favorite teas. I love to drink this as a substitute for dessert.

The creamy flavor of vanilla brought together with a robust black tea forms a classic combination. It’s exquisite, it’s indulgent, it’s delectable, and with a little bit of milk and sweetener it’s perfection in a cup.

This is one of my favorite flavored teas. It’s great with lots of milk and a bit of sugar. It has a strong vanilla flavor that isn’t too bitter or artificial-tasting, but also has a warm black tea body. I’ve found it difficult to oversteep (if it tastes bitter, add more milk!), but it can be kind of wimpy if you understeep it. It’s a great tea to put into a thermos for a picnic or to take to work, and it also makes a good iced tea.
