Very rich and almost coffee-like – this is the closest any tea I’ve had has ever come to coffee without actually having coffee beans in it. I can taste a hint of vanilla, which tastes natural to me and not at all artificial. I also picked up a tannic aftertaste. The aroma is heavenly – almost chocolatey, with a hint of the vanilla! I brewed this in my Teavana PerfectTea maker and steeped it for 4 minutes, with a teaspoon of rock sugar added. Next time, I’ll see how it stands up to some cream!

Flavors: Tannic, Vanilla

If you count the bagged stuff, I’ve been a tea drinker for a long time. I first discovered the joys of loose leaf on a trip to London in 2014, and it’s all been downhill from there. I’m still in the phase where I want to try everything, and I’m still developing my tea personality.

Types of tea / tisanes I gravitate toward: black, green oolong, Japanese green, flavored teas (sweet, floral, fruity, minty, complex, you name it), rooibos, roasted mate, and many herbal and fruit combos.

Teas I need to try, try again, or keep trying: white, pu erh, dark oolong, pure Chinese green, mate

I’ll update soon with my rating system!
