This was the original tea that introduced me to Tea Forte and after trying several of the others, it is still the best. Somehow, I found it tastes better in the cafe paired with a full breakfast, that is where it really shines. But it is still good on its own, or with a simple sandwich.
I really wanted to love this tea. I thought it sounded like an excellent cup to snuggle up with in winter. It is rich. And who doesn’t love vanilla? But, for me, the flavor is cloying. Even the smell doesn’t make me want to drink it. I don’t think that’s the vanilla, but whatever it is they’ve described as “orchid”. I’m not sure. But I won’t be buying it again. It’s not bad. I just don’t love it.
