This came in a holiday sample box from Azzrian. Thank you Azz!!

It smells so decadently vanilla. The aroma is authentic and strong. I steeped 1tsp/8oz/4minutes. The black base is strong, but the vanilla is really creamy and sweet. A little bit of agave and milk and I’m in heaven. A lovely way to start the day after a late night :)

This is absolutely PERFECT. PERFECT.
Exactly the vanilla I was craving. To a tee. Down to the very last drop. Oh my god, this was just divine. So smooth, so creamy…

This is a purchase for me in the future. Undoubtedly. But thank you so much, keychange, for giving me the generous sample!

I’m so glad this was a hit with you!


This tea reminds me of my turkey poop experience.


Yes! I love this one too.
I uh… huh. Do I want to know Starfevre?


I can’t thank you enough, keychange. :) You are such a dear!!


If you really want to know, it’s all revealed on my latest tasting note for this tea.


Hahahaha oh my.

I’ve apparently had this before but I don’t remember it and I kinda liked it and I made it 3 times tonight because the first time I gave it to my mother (who really loved it especially the aroma and the finish, and told me as I asked her that she felt a lot like she was doing a wine tasting since I asked her a bunch of questions about this). (She just reminded me to not forget to mention the turkey poop). After I made it, I went to empty the no-name gravity infuser outside since they do not have a functional garbage disposal and it fell to pieces, one of which I did not realize had come off.

So when I made myself some of this, it did not hold the water and made a huge mess. While we were trying to find the piece that I don’t even know what it looks like, outside, in the dark, I definitely touched a piece of turkey poop, which is just as disgusting as it sounds. And we did not find it.

Thankfully I had left behind a large teaball when I visited last time so I was able to make this for myself with the 3rd set of leaves and yes it tastes very good. I over leafed a bit I think which meant it had almost the perfect amount of vanilla flavour for me. The tea itself was pretty light and definitely smooth as anything and the immediate aftertaste was really nice though not so much now so I should go eat or drink something else soon.

Maybe it was the thrill of victory of overcoming all of the obstacles to drink this tea but it was pretty damn good.

Oh no, glad you finally got your cuppa!!


The lengths we’ll go to for our tea eh?


Yes. I saw some of the actual turkeys this morning. They are enormous and fearless.

Finally got around to trying this sample. Sharing it with my mom and sitting outside in the patio at home, listening to birds chirp and Kaki King pandora.
Its so rare to be able to sit outside this time of year. We don’t even need ac on.
What’s awesome about our backyard is that there’s no pool, which all florida homes usually have. Instead we have hundreds of plants and flowers that my mom spends all day taking care of, and a huge black olive tree that was here long before we were. It’s like a little jungle, with lots of bamboo and even a handmade fireplace created out of coral from various beaches.

This tea is a bit light for me. I feel like I keep saying that lately.. but I just like black tea to be really flavorful. I taste the vanilla just a little bit. Will have to try again soon.

My many thanks go out to Azz for this sample which came in an incredibly awesome care package, she is ‘the man’,er…uh…you know what I mean. So I steeped this up and my mouth was watering. I mean, who doesn’t like vanilla. Add to that the residual giddiness I still have after opening my package from Azz (there was even a cool little adjustable measuring spoon and a spongy biscuit that I believe to be Mr Bill and teas that convince me she has telepathic powers).
Then the phone rang. ARGH!…and it was important.
So between distracted sips I can tell you I got some vanilla. It tastes buttery and creamy, though mouthfeel(TeaEqualsBliss word) is not creamy- it’s a little astringent. If you’ve read many of my notes I’m picky about astringency so this may not be a factor to many of you. Also, it’s not super dry/bitter or anything like that, just a little dryness on the tongue.
There’s a sweetness on the inside of my cheeks, which is where the lingering sweet aftertaste is as well. I seem to taste a bit of nutmeg coming through. I still can’t get over how much vanilla I taste, I can’t imagine adding sugar to this already sweet drink.
Luckily for me this is one of those cases where I have enough left to do another note later. My appologies that this note is a flop, I am disappointed at getting a phone call and I’m sure it shows.

Azzrian sent me an awesome tea package and this was in it. (thank you thank you!) I somehow missed this one on my Della Terra sample spree, where I bought 20+ samples. Even the ones I missed are good, because this one is delicious. Why is vanilla considered so boring anyway? I love vanilla anything… This one seems like it has a bit more than vanilla though. It tastes like a sweet and buttery pastry. The black tea base is perfect. Della Terra likes to use this tasty yet mild flavored base that lets their unique blends shine. Della Terra never fails!

Happy Thanksgiving Steepsters!

Dry: Short black tea leaves with some stems noted. Smells like sweet and creamy vanilla. Not vanilla extract, but a sweet and lovely vanilla none-the-less.

Steeped: Clear brown liquor. Smells a little more like vanilla extract once boiling water is added to the loose leaf, but it calms down as it expands back to that dry creamy scent.

Taste: This one is a nice and sweet vanilla tea. It is not complicated nor overpowering, just rich and lovely. No bitterness or astringency noted. I have been on the search for the perfect vanilla black and I like this one quite a bit. I went back and forth, but I think in the end I like it just a bit more than the Harney Vanilla Black, too. I do not need any more tea right now, but I might snag a larger bag this weekend to keep it stocked up in the cupboard. I only had 1oz to begin with, but I think I’ve had it for breakfast the past couple of days straight plus some random afternoons this week and last so there is only enough for one more teapot. I need to try this with milk and sugar as I’ve been drinking it with nothing added this entire time.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Also I’d love other good straight vanilla recommendations!


No recommendations here because I’m looking for those too, but I’m adding this to my dt cart and am excited to try it!


silk road does a beautiful one: vanilla plantation. there’s a hint of orange in it i think which gives it a buttercream suggestion….. very nice.


I hope you like it Keychange! Also thanks James! I will check it out for sure. :)

So after the horrible luck I’ve been having with teas tonight, I decided on a tea that I’m almost positive I’d like. I mean, you can’t (very rarely) go wrong with vanilla. This was one of the teas I got in the Try-me sampler on my last order.
The smell in the bag reminds me of Love in a Cup, which is great because I love that tea too.
The flavor was very nice. Smooth vanilla taste that increased after I added a bit of sugar. I used 1 1/2 tsp of this, but next time I might try 2 tsp to see if I can get more vanilla taste.
This is one I’d definitely consider reordering next time, unless I find a better vanilla tea before that.

this is a fave of mine. it’s what i drink when i just can’t seem to decide what to drink. :)

Short Sorceress

It must have been something about last night, it was a horrible tea night for me as well.


Shmiracles – Lol. When I can’t decide what to drink, I always end up not drinking anything. Mostly because by the time I just decide to grab something randomly, it’s too late to drink tea.

Sorceress – I blame it on the weather. Lol.

Mmmmmmm!!! Another successful tea I brought to work this morning! I came up with a system so I don’t have to get up crazily early just to bring my tea:) it’s working and I’m loving it! This was another creamy tea that didn’t need milk to bring it out!!! Yay me! This was a lovely vanilla tea. Since the name was cafe vanilla I was expecting some espresso but nope.. All vanilla !!!!! Yummo! So glad I ordered this one!

Your reviews always make your teas sound amazing. I swear each time I read one I add something else to my shopping list! Also congrats on finding a way to sleep in and still have tea!! I have yet to master that so usually I end up having to wait until I get home. Btw I hope you feel better!!

Ha ha aw thanks I’m not very descriptive cause I’m usually in a hurry. My tasting notes seem to get shorter and shorter :(


I guess it is your excitement. I doubt you would be that excited if it was not that good!
