Loose leaf black tea and vanilla flavours blended together create this delicious brew that is creamy, slightly sweet and sumptuously aromatic.
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water, brew for 4+ mins.

The tea has a full bodied vanilla taste. This is the second time I have ordered this tea and it remains a favourite.
This is my second order of vanilla tea from Tugboat, and this time I've ordered the large size! It's a little different to other vanilla black teas I've tried in so far as this has a creamy edge to it. Warming, comforting and delicious!
Wow this vanilla tea is so scrumptious at any time of the day. Must admit I do like anything vanilla so this was a must purchase and I went for a rather large bag so give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
Full of vanilla, smooth and very warming. Really different to Rooibos Vanilla Creme. Recommend both!
I like black tea and this one is particularly high quality. It isn't sickly in any way, a very nice blend for any time of day. I've had vanilla tea before and it tasted somewhat artificial, like a sweet or vanilla essence but this is nothing like that.
Some vanilla teas are a bit ice-creamy, which have their virtues, but what I like about this vanilla tea is that it's a wee bit sharper and 'darker' as a blend, with a subtle edge to it - a tad less round than other vanilla teas, and tasting more clearly of unadulterated vanilla. It's a tricky tea flavour though. If, for example, you make it in a pot which has had another flavour in, such as a flowery tea, or if you have certain kinds of nibbles with it, then its subtler tones can be lost. As with David below, sometimes I mix it with another tea, such as Keemun, and also an almond tea, and it works well. Other times it stands well on its own. So it's a great tea for certain moments, and I recommend trying it. Even my 21 year old son liked it, which says something! Try him on Rose Congou and you get the standard-issue 'Yuk'. So there must be something right about it! ;-)
