Taster’s Review:

Mmmmm!  I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again, I love vanilla flavored teas.  There is something so luxuriously smooth and wonderful about vanilla teas … the soft, creamy taste of vanilla melds so beautifully with the leaves of camellia sinensis!  And this Thé Vert á la Vanille from Le Palais des Thés does indeed taste creamy, smooth and luxurious!

The overall presentation of the cup is mellow.  The soft, lush taste of the green tea – vegetative and fresh tasting – unified with the sweet, creamy taste of vanilla.  It is delicate and delicious, with a buttery undertone and sweet high notes.

The green tea notes have almost a “lima bean” kind of flavor to them, and there is a hint of buttery taste in the layers of flavor, and a wisp of flower in there too.  The vanilla brings it all together – and while it seems like it shouldn’t work (I mean, lima beans and vanilla?  Really?) somehow, it does.  It works out wonderfully!

A really nice cuppa.  I think this makes a great afternoon tea … a beautiful way to spend a leisurely afternoon … not rushed, not hurried … the kind of day when you have time to just sit back and enjoy a delicious cup of tea!
