This tea was surprisingly good and I think was one of the best flavored teas that I've tried yet from Mighty Leaf, definitely my favorite black tea of theirs too. Served in Central Perk Coffee Shop in Newark, DE.

The base tea has a strong warming quality and is rich and aromatic. On the website, I see they list tea as being a blend from China and Sri Lanka; the Chinese black tea is evident in this blend, with a warming quality and a rich but smooth heartiness.

The vanilla flavoring is subtle, not at all overdone. In contrast with some teas, the vanilla tastes neither creamy nor like bourbon vanilla. I don't know how to describe it but it blends very well with the base tea.

This would be a vanilla-flavored black tea to cater more to the tastes of pure tea enthusiasts (like myself).

I recommend steeping this quite long. Three minutes wasn't too long, six minutes tasted a lot better to me. Alternatively you could use a smallish cup (8 ounces might be good, 12 ounces might be too small).
