I…..hmm. I didn’t care much for this one, and that makes me sad. I’ve been searching for a good vanilla black and this is not it. It’s my first Teaopia tea and I’m not so impressed. Both with the shop itself, the employees were slightly rude and completely unhelpful, and with the tea. There was no, “Oh, it’s your first time here? Well, this is what is in this tea, and this tea is similar, it has this and that and this…” Nope. Just pulled down the few I wanted to smell, waved the lid of the tin in an effort to bring the smell to me, I think, but in actuality waved the scent of the teas away from me, and bagged it up. I bought 50 g of Dublin Cream thinking, foolishly, it was an Irish Cream, but no. It’s black tea, coffee beans, and jasmine. The store was so dark that I couldn’t actually see in the tins, which was irritating in and of itself.
As for the flavor of the tea, well, the tea was bitter and the vanilla was weak. So it was everything I never wanted in a tea XD
I think I’ve been utterly spoiled by DavidsTea, both in tea flavor and customer service.
