A vanilla-flavored Black tea…didn’t I review this before? The Tea Lab’s Creme Maurice is a little different. Instead of full, whole leaves, this tea is a “broken leaf” grade tea, meaning that the tea has been torn or broken into much smaller pieces. The tea that you find in most supermarket tea bags is a broken leaf tea, so you’re probably more familiar with this grade of tea than you think!
Broken leaf teas infuse quickly and give you a more robust cup than higher grade loose leaf teas. Creme Maurice packs in a lot of vanilla flavor in a smooth, yet full-bodied cup of tea. I couldn’t find this to purchase on The Tea Lab’s website, but Silver Tips Tea has this same blend available for purchase.
Huge thanks to TYOT listener Mari Dickson for sending me this tea!
