mightyleafvanillabean.jpgThis is one of the simplest forms of flavored black tea I've tried. The ingredients are exactly what the name of the tea implies: black tea and vanilla beans. This is a satisfying and comforting cup.

I was expecting a dreamy, creamy, and almost intoxicating vanilla bean smell. It didn't quite live up to my frosting-like expectations. Sure, it smelled good because vanilla always does. However, it smelled more like a marshmallow than a deep and liqueur-like vanilla. But, the taste belied the aroma. The black tea took a backseat to the vanilla when sipping this brew. I've seen some vanilla teas that list “bourbon vanilla” as an ingredient. I expected the ingredients to list that exact description because it did indeed take on a liqueur-like vanilla flavor (though the ingredient list simply claimed vanilla beans). The black tea base was very mild and pleasing. Sometimes Mighty Leaf black teas trend towards the bitter side and create an unappealing base for the flavor. This is not the case with vanilla bean; in fact the black tea was almost too mild. Altogether, I consider this vanilla bean a worthwhile tea if you're in the market for vanilla; otherwise, it's not a must-have.

I will reference another addiction of mine when considering this tea: cream soda. There is a difference between A&W© Cream Soda and Cotton Club© Danish Cream Soda. A&W© is a golden color and tastes like ice cream, where Cotton Club© is clear and crisp. I would consider this Mighty Leaf Vanilla Bean under the A&W© category in aroma and the Cotton Club© category in flavor. If you are searching for that gooey, sugary, and buttery vanilla tea you should probably look elsewhere.
