About Vanilla Black Tea

Vanilla black tea is a common type of flavored black tea; it is usually produced with vanilla extract and sometimes with artificial vanilla flavor (synthetic vanillin, one of the natural components of vanilla extract). Vanilla flavored black tea typically has a creamy quality, and an aroma that suggests sweetness.

RateTea lists teas in this category that are flavored primarily with vanilla and have few other flavorings. Teas blending black tea with vanilla and spices are classified under vanilla chai.

Certain vanilla teas are called French vanilla. Such terminology originated in reference to custard-based ice-cream, and is a made-up term, not referring to France or anything French.[1] The "French" designation is essentially meaningless in reference to vanilla flavored tea.

I enjoy a lot this tea, it has a very balanced taste. As you can taste the strong flavor of the black tea it also leaves the vanilla scent in your mouth. I think it could have a more aromatic vanilla fragrance. The 2 minutes to prepare it are enough. I also enjoy this tea with milk, it reduces the bitterness if you dis...

The taste starts out rich with notes of cocoa mixing cocoa butter creaminess and rich dark chocolate, this is accompanied by sweet caramelized sugar. At the beginning there is a hint of rich vanilla that builds around the mid-taste, this explodes into a sweet, creamy crescendo at the end which blends perfectly with the...

Blargh! One of my office-mates LOVES this stuff - but what does he know? Anyhow - it's OK. Just OK. Smells better than it brews-up. Dark black tea with a hint of sweetness. Just OK. Very inexpensive - thus it is available at many offices - like mine. (Jenna T. Drinker sums it up perfectly.)
