Very rich and almost coffee-like – this is the closest any tea I’ve had has ever come to coffee without actually having coffee beans in it. I can taste a hint of vanilla, which tastes natural to me and not at all artificial. I also picked up a tannic aftertaste. The aroma is heavenly – almost chocolatey, with a hint of the vanilla! I brewed this in my Teavana PerfectTea maker and steeped it for 4 minutes, with a teaspoon of rock sugar added. Next time, I’ll see how it stands up to some cream!
