From Pure Leaf

Pure Leaf hot Black Tea with Vanilla incorporates single origin Indian Assam tea with Madagascan vanilla beans to create a tea-forward taste with a delectable hint of vanilla. Madagascan vanilla is well known for its indulgent taste that lingers on your palate with a long, luscious finish. We use the orthodox black tea leaf with bright marigold petals and flakes of vanilla beans and natural flavoring to deliver a rich aroma and smooth, indulgent taste.

I don’t even want to look and see what year it was when I sat down to write about a tea in Steepster. It was a long time ago and I had stopped drinking my teas for a while. Life happened and I’m in a new apartment with my fiance! He got be a variable temperature kettle (best fiance ever) and I am back to drinking all of my tea!

I process magazines into the library and I remember when I first saw an ad for these teabags. I do drink the bottled Pure Leaf from time to time (not my favorite bottled tea, but it is ok) so when I saw this on the shelf in Giant, I decided to snag a box to see how it was.

I didn’t even notice it was black tea with vanilla until I got it home since I just grabbed the black tea. It smells so good when steeping. All vanilla teas smell good when steeping. I was surprised to see on the box that this is an Assam black tea. I don’t normally see that mentioned on store brand teas. When I do it is normally in a breakfast blend.

I have no sugar in the apartment currently, so I’m trying this plain first to see how it is.

It tastes like a normal vanilla tea. Not quite sweet enough to tell it is vanilla. No smell of vanilla once it is done steeping. A bit astringent after the sip with just a tad bit of something sweet lingering. It might be good iced, but it is winter and I don’t really want cold tea unless I am taking it to work.

With Milk:
I normally have some milk in my morning tea now since I’ve been drinking boxes and boxes of Twinings Chai. I have no idea why I keep thinking that milk will fix all vanilla tea and bring out the vanilla like magic. No vanilla, but the milk makes the tea taste slightly caramel. That is always nice and appreciated in the morning.

Good thing I have a paycheck coming this week. This one would probably taste best with sugar, but other than that it tastes like any other vanilla tea. Slightly disappointing that the tea never tastes how it smells when it is steeping, but overall fine for a cup. Kinda like the bottled tea.

Walmart was giving away free sample bags last weekend. The first thing I noticed about the pyramid bag was how fresh and sweet it smelled. (I don’t have the adjectival chops to tell you how I differentiate between fresh and not-so-fresh, but it was.)

Steeped, even with the disadvantage of water from a work microwave, it has the pastry-cookie vanilla sweetness of Harney and Sons’ Vanilla Comoro, which I know is often held up as the gold standard for vanilla tea. The Pure Leaf jars run a little pricier than boxed grocery store favorites, but this one earns its keep!

Sil

nice!
