goldenmoonvanillajasmine.jpgI love trying different things; in high school, I took Japanese instead of Spanish; when eating out, I try my hardest to pick a dish I've never had before; and when it comes to tea, I love trying blends that I've never seen before. Vanilla jasmine is one of those blends. It sounded as though it could either turn out to be absolutely delicious, or it could just end in tears. Thankfully, it falls squarely into the "delicious" category.

The tea leaves are nothing special to look at; just black tea with a smattering of jasmine flowers. Something I've never seen before, but not really all that impressive to look at. It smells mostly of vanilla, with the jasmine taking the backseat. It's smooth smelling with a good dose of sweet, which when it comes to vanilla is the only way to be.

The taste is noticeably different from the smell, but not in a bad way. The black tea does play a dominant role in flavor, but there's enough vanilla and jasmine there that even I enjoyed it. It isn't quite as sweet as it smells like it should be, but it is just as smooth. I tried mine with a pinch of sweetener and just a bit a milk and it was dang near perfect. The vanilla is still the dominant flavor of the two, but the jasmine makes itself known and adds an interesting twist to the traditional vanilla.

Bottom Line: While not as decadent as most dessert teas, I think this does fall into that classification. It's smooth and creamy, and with a bit of sweetener I think it could easily take the place of bowl of vanilla ice cream any day, though maybe that's just because I'm partial to chocolate.
