I love the smell of teas! They are all so different! This one to me smells like vanilla with a hint of citrus or orange to me. I don’t really smell the bourbon. But I could definitely smell the vanilla which I love!

After the brew, the smell is more black tea than anything else. It is a pretty dark amber color that I love! First sip, hmmmm tastes mainly like ….black tea :) but there is a slight sweetness at the end. After a few more sips yep that is about all I taste so I decide to let it cool a bit.

Now I can taste the vanilla and a hint of bourbon, and the flavors meld very nicely. This is a very subtle tea that has a bit of astringency at the end. It is good but not sure if it will be on my re-buy list.

I have been wanting to drink tea for about a year now. I love the idea of tea but I go through times when I don’t drink any…. I know that it is good for me but sometimes I just don’t make it. I think that finding a place like this will help me remember to drink happiness! I have really only tried Teavanna teas and have a whole cupboard full of them. I recently just bought a few teas from other companies and are waiting impatiently for them! :)

I tend to like fruity teas or spicy, sweet teas. I like them to have lots and lots of flavor. I am looking the ultimate chocolate tea and the ultimate coconut tea. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This forum looks like such a friendly and warm place, I can’t wait to learn more and more about tea as well as enjoy all of the different kinds.
