Last T Kettle blend of the night! I’m excited to be ending on one that looks to actually be more of a unique to T Kettle creation…

There’s a catalog blend from MTC called “Bourbon St. Vanilla” and I feel like this probably started as that tea, but it’s definitely a bit different – especially in the very gorgeous visual of the tea. I really love how they incorporated all the colours of Mardis Gras into the visual of the blend; it’s such stunning story telling and tie in to the name. The Bourbon St. Vanilla blend, while not the most exciting flavour, does kind of feel exciting in a similar way – it’s named after Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but the name is also a riff on that “bourbon vanilla” profile that was quite commercial and popular at one point. This takes that wordplay to the next level, and I respect it.

The taste is similar to the fondant-like or “doughy” vanilla flavour that I experienced in their Birthday Party blend – it may even be the same flavouring. I personally do not like that style of vanilla type flavour, but I know there’s a large amount of people who respond really well to it so it makes sense I guess to keep it consistent. Not an unpleasant tea overall, and preferable to me over Birthday Party – but not something I’d feel compelled to have again.

But, again, I just think this is a super fun interpretation of that classic MTC blend. If more of T Kettle’s blends were in this vein, I think I’d have a lot more fun with their approach to tea…
