I’m really enjoying this tea. I love vanilla, but most vanilla teas don’t impress me. I don’t know what is different about this one, but I like it. It has the lightest malt to it that works well with the vanilla. I love complexity of multiple flavors in tea working off each other, but this is really just vanilla and for whatever reason that’s all I need it to be.

That sounds really tasty. The “lightest malt” with vanilla. Yum.

Interesting. Most vanilla teas don’t impress me, either. They tend to be too flat, too marshmallow-y. I love Mariage Freres, and my go-to vanilla from that company is Vanille des Iles. It’s more complex, richer.

Oh! I’ll have to keep an eye out for their other vanilla tea!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
