Review of French Vanilla Decaffeinated Black Tea

3 of 101 of 53 of 530 of 100

Opening the foil pouch releases the scent of vanilla and cream, like custard or eggnog. Adding the water makes the aroma overpowering. This is decaf, so there is probably little tea aroma. Even if there were any, though, it would be completely masked by the flavoring.

The flavoring has a rich sweetness to it, but the vanilla has the harsh edge of vanillin. There's no hint of tea. The flavor is actually spot-on for Dum Dum cream soda lollipops. Instead of a beverage in its own right, it might be good as a flavoring for coffee.

I'm glad this tea was part of a sampler box. I'd hate to have a whole box left.
