From The Persimmon Tree Tea Company

Periwinkle combines the best of two sensations: thick and creamy. The dark, thick black leaves of Assam tea and soothing star shaped vanilla bits create a visually appealing and delicious black and white infusion. Pour a warm cup of this mixture, and enjoy the unique, delicious combination of thick Assam and creamy vanilla.

So I got 2oz of this tea from Persimmon Tree’s 20% off + free shipping sale a few weeks ago around the 4th. I couldn’t resist getting a few of their teas-one of the most awesome sales to me!
What appealed to me in this tea was the possibility that it would taste like vanilla mixed in with the assam. As it steeped I could mainly smell the black tea with hints of vanilla. But when it cooled down enough to drink the vanilla really hit me.
You can still taste the black tea of course, but it’s not really malty or anything too distinct.
This tea reminds me a lot of Harney&Sons, Vanilla Comoro which I adore!
It’s basically the more subtle version of Vanilla Comoro.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to get more of this tea, but if they have another awesome sale like before (fingers crossed for Black Friday/Cyber Monday) I’ll definitely purchase more. Another nice vanilla tea!

Oh man oh man oh man. I am so glad to be home. With my cold and everything (luckily – or not so much so with my asthma – it seems to be a chest cold, so I can still taste things).

I love my mom’s dogs, but I don’t know if I could ever do three of them in my future. Between the one that sometime eats so fast she throws up, and the one that hurt herself in the snow and the one that has an insanely sensitive stomach and as a result taught me how to steam vac a carpet. Yeah, I don’t think I could do it.

Tea related, though. I’d thought I’d reviewed this before. I know I’ve drank it, as I’m nearing the bottom of the tin. But whatever.

The stars of white tea add some fun visual interest in my steeper, though really they add little to nothing flavor-wise. The real star is the creamy, and slightly sweet vanilla flavor. It tames the slight bitterness of the Assam, and overall makes a rich cup with a thick mouthfeel.

I’m not blown away by this as a vanilla tea, and I’m not sure if I’d reorder , but it’s far from the worst I’ve had.

I’d say those dogs are very lucky to have your mom. And hey – steam vac? Always a handy skill to have.


Everyone who knows her (and the dogs) says the same. :) She loves them like her children, and they know it.

Comparing to Persimmon Tree’s Vanilla Bean, I like this one much better. The vanilla’s a little more subtle and I like the base tea quite a bit. I’d drink it hot or iced all day long.
