The perfect Tea for putting a smile on your face.  Let’s get the party started with our Indian Black Tea blend that will remind you of vanilla cupcakes with candy sprinkles.

Taster’s Review:

What a fun tea!  And it really does smell like vanilla cupcakes!

I love cupcakes – I go positively giddy every time I see something cupcake (especially if I see a cupcake bakery!  haha!)  So I was really excited about this tea.  The cute little candy sprinkles add such life to what might otherwise be an ordinary-looking black tea.

The candy sprinkles melt during steeping, and add just a tiny bit of sweetness to the cup.  (If you like your teas sweet, you might want to add just a little more)  The black tea is brisk but not overbearing, and has a pleasant, inviting taste (and aroma!)  There is a light astringency to this cup.  It is not bitter, though, even after five minutes of steeping.

This tea has a light vanilla taste to it.  Like the black tea base, it is not an overwhelming vanilla taste.

This would be a great tea to serve to guests (a great party tea!) because it has a fairly mellow tone to it, it is not overly astringent.  It is not cloying nor bitter… a very friendly sort of tea!
