I bought a one-pound bag from my local merchant a couple of months ago after a year or more keeping smaller tins on my shelf. It's one of my "Sunday morning" teas, with its smooth sweet aroma and mildness. (I'm not a fan of highly astringent tea.) After reading Susan C's review I'm wondering whether I got one of the last bags available before the processing change.I am very fond of this tea, with a bit of honey or even maple syrup to bring out the vanilla, and a good dollop of milk.
i may have to order a sample before restocking to learn whether I can detect a change.
Just received a 1 pound bag of Vanilla Black Tea. It and the Vanilla Comoro) are a staple in our house. It smelled differently and tasted terrible. Customer Service explained that Harney changed a couple months ago to natural rather than artificial flavoring. We won't be buying either of these teas again and will perhaps no other teas (such as Paris if it now tastes different). Very disappointed ans sad to loose my favorite tea and tea shop.
I really enjoy this tea.
It has a good vanilla flavor, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys black teas.
Very calming and soothing.
