This is the perfect vanilla tea!

Cold brew 1.5 tsp leaf, 500 mL water, 1 hour steep

Smooth malty base with sweet and cocoa notes. Some marshmallow (not as much as I would have liked, but it’s present), so much vanilla. Very flavourful and assam comes through nicely. I’m not very familiar with different varietals, but I think this is a good example of the malty mouth feel you get from assams. It makes it feel rich, smooth, thick, and satisfying (rather than just flavoured water). No astringency or bitterness, despite the long steep and dark brew colour. The sweetness really brings it all together nicely, and it doesn’t taste artificial at all.

Flavors: Creamy, Malt, Marshmallow, Sweet, Tannin, Thick, Vanilla

Iced 8 min or more 3 g 17 OZ / 500 ML

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
