This is a nice surprise. The vanilla teas I’ve had before lean towards this custard/yogurt sort of vanilla flavor. This one tastes like pure vanilla, like that good Mexican vanilla extract, even down to the hint of liquor flavor. While I could do with it a being a little stronger (vanilla teas never seem to be strong enough) the flavor does meld beautifully with the base. I think this is my favorite of the NMTC teas so far.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
Nightshifter

And now I need to go look at this tea. ~Vanilla Freak/Nightshifter

I’m a vanilla freak too :) But it’s like questing for the Holy Grail, SO difficult to find a nice strong vanilla for some reason.

Nightshifter

It is! Have you tried Golden Orchid by Whispering Pines or Singing Dog Organic Vanilla? They are the best I’ve found. I like the base of GO best, but I like the vanilla in SD best. Hope this helps! :)

Those sound great, I’ll put them on the list!

rooibos (I don’t get it. Everyone seems psyched for it. Not me).
those smoky teas, like lapsang souchong, though once in a while I’ll need something really strong and then I like them.
