I brewed a teaspoon of this tea in a cup of freshly boiled water for five minutes. The scent of the dried leaves was of vanilla more than anything else. Once brewed, the vanilla scent became even stronger. I drank this black. The first sip was of the black tea tannin-y bitterness while vanilla lingered behind. At times, there were hints of spice from the ginger but over all I found it barely detectable. It was also slightly warming in the mouth and the stomach. In the similar way I feel after I drink a ginger tea or take a ginger pill but on a small scale.

It was still enjoyable to drink but I am on the fence about buying it again.

I may add a few pieces of ginger to the next cup I made as the vanilla-ginger combination sounds great.
