From Tazo®

This indulgent tea pays homage to France’s celebrated cookie made of delicious meringue. We joined the luscious flavor of vanilla with select black teas for a guilt-free treat that will add a little “ooh la la” to every sip.

Had a chance to try this tea, as well as two of the other “Dessert Delights” teas from Tazo. I had very low expectations for the line up, given prior experiences with Tazo brand tea being pretty abysmal. While I liked the other two a fair bit, this one was just down right terrible. I mean, I can’t argue that you definitely do get the French Vanilla flavouring coming through pretty clearly – but there’s also something that just potently tastes like some sort of pasty kind of dough (like fondant) mixed with salty Play-Doh. It was revolting, and I couldn’t finish the mug…

Hmm it’s difficult to pin down my feelings on this tea. It tastes generically desserty. I enjoy the tingly feeling the licorice gives my tongue. The flavor isn’t unpleasant, but it’s slightly musty and indistinct. I think I have two boxes of this one, so I’ll be sharing most of it with my family. The vanilla is tasty, but there’s also a hint of artificiality that hurts this blend. I sort of like it, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

Meh. I had high hopes for this one; the scent was heavenly. It was sadly one-note and weak. I’ve read other reviewers say that double the tea bags might do the trick; not sure if I even want to go to the trouble.

I’ve had a few boxes of this tea since Tazo brought out the blue-purple boxed dessert line, and I like it. I think it was actually the first of the line I tried, and it was amazing — until I tried the Lemon Loaf (which is my current favorite tea). If I see this in my pantry, I’m happy, but I’ve been reaching for it less in the last few months. I think it might just be that it isn’t as much a hot summer tea? It’s starting to get cold where I live, so the thought of this tea is feeling much better now~

The Lemon Loaf is my favorite out of the bunch, too.

This is my favorite tea right now! My only wish is that it was a little stronger, but that can easily be fixed by adding another teabag or using less water. This tea doesn’t require sweetening, and it tastes like a warm vanilla cookie. It feels indulgent, when its really a simple cup of tea. I love love love this flavor, and I will forever recommend this to anyone who would enjoy a sweeter, milder black tea.

I HATED butterscotch blondie of the Tazo dessert delights line so I didn’t have high hopes for this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a strong smell of cinnamon, but not a strong taste of it. Vanilla-y and sweet. Yum!

Good lord. I can’t drink this by itself.

It’s like sipping buttercream frosting, with a STRONG emphasis on the butter. Almost sickeningly decadent. Even when blended 1:3 with other teas, this takes center stage. It’s potent.

Normally, I am all about super rich dessert teas. But this is rich to the point that it’s a little gross. I’d avoid this one.

Flavors: Butter, Cake, Vanilla

Love your description—on the flipside, I raved about this one; but then, I can eat frosting straight out of the container with a spoon. Everybody’s wired differently :)

So I may or may not have accidentally bought a whole bunch of delicious ginger biscuits this afternoon, and may or may not have rushed right home to brew tea and eat ginger biscuits. Nom.
So this was an impulse buy, and its a mildly sweet black tea. Nothing particularly special. Ah well. The ginger biscuits are delicious.

Sil

oooh ginger biscuits sound delicious

Evol Ving Ness

Sounds like a delightful combination.
Sil, PC used to have pretty amazing caramelized ginger biscuits. I keep stalking that aisle hoping that they make a comeback.

I continue to contend that any tea is infinitely better when accompanied by a spoonful of thoughtfulness. This was tucked into an encouraging card from a friend (thank you, friend!) that arrived in my mailbox exactly on the day I needed it.

But even without the sprinkle of kindness, this is pretty doggone tasty. Extremely sweet on its own, but the licorice doesn’t coat your tongue like it does in some blends. Very on the vanilla, somewhat on the cinnamon, and a viable substitute when you really, really need a cookie.

Evol Ving Ness

Lovely to be surrounded by kindness. <3

Not vanilla, not creamy, kind of bland and astringent. So disappointed by this one.

ashmanra

I use 200F water and only three minutes maximum steep and get a nice cup. Have you played with parameters at all?

sundaysipping

Sadly, no. It was work tea and I don’t have the best set up there. I did manage to get a few okay cups, though.
