I’ve always loved coffee with cream and sugar, of course, and the more fancy it gets the better…all those rich warm flavors mingled together…mmmmmm! A few of my faves are a Caramel Machiatto, a White Chocolate Mocha, and a Vanilla Latte.
BUT, I may have found a new love that is going to make me cheat on my relationship with coffee!
I was shopping for some tea options for our Airbnb guests and discovered Bigelow’s Vanilla Caramel black tea. Being a responsible hostess, I figured I should really try it before I offer it to my guests, so I boiled some distilled water and steeped a cup for the recommended 4 minutes. I like everything sweet but I am trying to reduce my sugar intake, so I dropped some honey in the cup and took my first sip.
This tea has a really nice blend of the boldness of the black tea and the softness of vanilla and caramel. It is a perfect blend of each flavor, without allowing any to be overpowering. If you like your hot beverages sweet, the honey is a nice compliment to the vanilla and caramel notes.
I’m not breaking up with coffee for good, but this tea will definitely make me consider cheating on a semi regular basis.
Do you have a secondary fave when it comes to hot drinks? Tell me what you love and I’ll give it a try!
