My tea preferences:
Black Tea: lighter teas + milk & 1 sugar

When I first smelled and sipped this tea I could hardly believe that it came from a tea bag rather than a pot of loose leaf. The tea is light, well rounded and sweet, and the aroma is not overpowering. One of my favorite things is that when the tea bag is taken out and milk is added there is the slightest residue that looks like, and that I assume to be, tiny parts of vanilla beans.

This is my favorite tea. Its quite dangerous as I could easily drink this as my one and only tea, except that its cost prohibitive. Of additional note, I really enjoy the packaging for the Canton Tea Pyramids. They are vacuum sealed in such a way that they retain their smell and essence better than any other tea bag tea that I've come across. (On a side note: this packaging increases the longevity of the fresh-tasting-tea by allowing you to seal it after use). This is tremendously advantageous for a black vanilla tea. I really really like vanilla and the strength of the vanilla taste is stronger than what I've found to be typical.

As far as the strength or darkness. This tea is a lighter black tea closer on the spectrum to Darjeeling than Assam, but still darker than Darjeeling.

My boyfriend bought a new bag of this tea today and smelling it alone makes me so happy. I certainly hope you won't be disappointed!
