Stash Tea Vanilla Nut Creme Review
I was craving something different one day and decided to pick this up at the store, it’s Stash Tea Vanilla Nut Creme. It’s a decaffeinated black tea, which I normally wouldn’t buy because I think decaf teas taste weird, but I got it anyway because I’m starting to develop caffeine sensitivity and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to give it up soon, or at least consume it in much lower doses. Anyway, I figured I’d do a quick review of it since I have it sitting around.
The back of the box reads: “A deliciously smooth, full-bodied black tea with a rich vanilla nut aroma and flavor.” – Maybe I’m being too picky, but I’m kind of stickler about things tasting how they are described. The aroma is definitely there, but the taste is no where near full bodied black tea, or rich vanilla nut. It has a very slight nutty taste to it, and a tiny bit of vanilla coming across, but you have to add sugar even for that. It’s not bad, it’s an okay tea, but it’s just not what they described it as and that bothers me a bit.
I steeped the tea for 3 or 4 minutes with water that was boiling. Pretty standard for a black tea. It smells a lot like nuts, but not vanilla or creme, I can’t describe it. It’s kind of an artificial smell. Stash claims it’s all natural but who really knows what that means anymore. All in all, Stash Tea Vanilla Nut Creme is alright, I wouldn’t buy it again but I will finish the box and enjoy it from time to time. If you like nutty tasting teas then this is for you, but if you’re looking for something creamy and desert like, find something else.
If you’re interested, you can get this tea from the Stash Tea website, or from Amazon. Have you tried Stash Tea Vanilla Nut Creme?
