Teajo Vanilla Bean Green

Photo: Teajo
Teajo does not have an ingredient list on their website but this tea obviously contains both green tea and vanilla beans. I also noticed some yellow and blue flower petals. The aroma was reminiscent of vanilla but in a syrupy sweet way. I brewed it using my Zarafina Tea Maker set on strong green. I do wish they listed the ingredients since I always like to know what went into a particular tea.

This tea was a little darker than I would expect from a green tea. It tasted slightly vegetal but the vanilla was a little overwhelming, almost too sweet. The second and third infusions were much better because it lessened the sweetness. For someone with a sweet tooth, it might be ideal but it was not really for me. I would recommend this tea to the right person but I probably wouldn’t buy it for myself.
