drank La Creme by Tealish
35 tasting notes

I tried this tea a long time ago because I was trying to replicate Harney & Sons ‘Paris’ tea. This is nothing like that. So I’m reviewing it again because a) I wasn’t on Steepster when I had it the 1st time and b) I want to give it an honest chance.

Aroma both dry and steeped is very vanilla-y. I’m having it black, but I suspect this would be good for a latte. A friend passed by my desk and I asked her to smell the steeped tea. She said it smelled like a pastry, which to me seems like a good thing. ;) The taste is definitely bold because it’s a black tea. The vanilla is very pronounced and there is no nasty lingering aftertaste. Much better than I remember this tea being.

Flavors: Cream, Vanilla

I do the Tea Festival every year, but I wouldn’t call myself a tea expert, I just know what I like.

Tea Preferences: I like my black teas. If it has bergamot or vanilla, even better. I can’t do smokey teas, and I’m super picky about herbal & fruit teas (but up to the challenge of finding some I like!)

My favourite teas:
Organic Bergamot Cream – Tea Sparrow
Organic Blueberry Rooibos – Tea Sparrow
Buckingham Palace Garden Party – Majestea’s (discontinued)
Organic Pineapple Oolong – David’s Tea
Peaches & Cream – Sloane Tea
Paris – Harney & Sons
