Black Tea, Flavor, Vanilla Pieces
This tea is so smooth and delicious!
The vanilla flavor here is very nicely pronounced – it isn’t too subtle or underwhelming. It has a nice richness to it. It is sweet and tastes creamy and it tastes authentic, no artificial vanilla flavoring here!
The black tea base is strong enough to hold its own though, and is not overpowered by the strength of the vanilla. While it is not exceptionally brisk or malty, I don’t know that I would want it to be, because then I wouldn’t be enjoying the vanilla notes that I taste right now. That is to say that this tea is just so delicious just the way it is that I don’t think I’d want to change a single thing about it. It has a silky smooth – almost indulgent! – luxurious flavor to it that I am really enjoying.
While this tea would make an excellent candidate for a latte, complete with the warmed, frothed milk, I found it quite enjoyable plain. It is perfectly sweet without adding anything to it. It is also quite tasty chilled!
This is the first tea I’ve tried from SpecialTea Brew and based upon this very positive experience, it won’t be the last.
