Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: Mark T. Wendell
A rich, whole-leaf Ceylon black tea with vanilla scent and flavoring. It is an exotic twist on your favorite beverage. Easy to make into your favorite iced tea.
There’s no mistaking the vanilla flavor here!
After tasting this Vanilla Flavored Black Tea, I wouldn’t have guessed that it was a Ceylon tea used for the base of this tea. It is a rich tasting black tea, even a little hearty. Yes, I’ve tasted quite a few Ceylon teas that are indeed rich in flavor, but, this tastes richer. My guess would have been an Assam and Ceylon blend, because while this tea doesn’t have the malty tones of an Assam, it certainly has the solid flavor of an Assam.
But what impresses me even more about this blend from Mark T. Wendell is the vanilla essence. This tea possesses a very strong vanilla flavor – which is evident not only in the taste but also the aroma. It smells really yummy!
The flavor is sweet and creamy. It has a cozy, comforting kind of flavor to it, while at the same time, it tastes totally indulgent, like a sweet, decadent dessert.
If you’re fond of vanilla teas, you should definitely try this one. Or, if you’re just looking for a delicious, treat-like alternative to your standard breakfast tea, this one would certainly tickle your taste buds! It is so incredibly YUM!
