Bourbon from Dammann Freres

Even though I still drink coffee in the morning to get myself going before work, with the arrival of the cold weather (finally!) I have been reaching for more tea. It’s so nice to pick a tea and sip on it throughout the afternoon and evening. This one sounded warming and sweet, just what I needed this evening when a sugar craving hit.

Sipping… I love that the black tea base is mellow, while also providing a bold base for the added flavors. The vanilla comes out as the sip spreads across your tongue. It reminds me quite a bit of Lucky Charms marshmallows with that pure, sugary sweet flavor. I think the caramel comes out at the tail end, but is almost overshadowed by the vanilla. They blend really well together and really make this cup a delicious treat. The caramel isn’t terribly complex, but brings to mind gooey, sticky strands hugging vanilla beans.

If you’re looking for a simple black tea with the addition of vanilla and caramel, I highly recommend this one. It’s a lovely dessert tea that is great on its own, but might even take milk and sugar well, too. I think it would partner well with a slice of cake or pie.

Here’s the scoop!
