My first tea of Halloween day. I wanted something sweet and creamy, and this seemed like it would fit the bill. However, even with the addition of sugar and cream, it’s surprisingly astringent and a bit bitter. It has a lovely vanilla aroma, but it’s lacking the rich, vanilla flavor I was hoping for. Based on other reviews, it seems like this tea can be a bit finicky, so I will be retrying a few different temp/time combinations.
