Possessive of itself and avoiding any analysis: vanilla is, upon deeper inspection, a well-positioned mate for black tea. Vanilla Black proves this as it gains ground through its quiet, uncomplicated collection. With health qualities and upper-class details taking the sideline; flavor is key here: Vanilla Black as a somewhat sweet experience. In terms of direct description: the “beany” quality of vanilla flavoring is present here, lying somewhat delicately over the black leaf base. Both notes provide a milder sensation, and each pulls its modest weight in joining up to create the final product: Vanilla black tea.
Enjoy it hot, cold, morning, noon, or night.
Base leaf: Black tea.
Health properties: Reported restorative properties..
Flavor strength: Medium, evocative. Primary collection is vanilla.
I like chai, but sometimes the spices are ‘out of balance,’ at least to me. Here the spices meld nicely with the vanilla. Nothing dominates, just a pleasantly warm & flavourful chai. It also stands up fine to milk and sugar, which I like in chai. Recommended!
This is becoming one of me Good Life Tea Staples. The Vanilla is not overpowering to the black tea flavor and it is a perfect morning tea for the commute to work.
This tea is very balanced and a real treat for mid-afternoon. I was able to drink this black and found it very smooth and enjoyable.
