For us this a classic vanilla black tea is the most comforting tea blend, which is why we call it our “house blend” — inspired by a typical British “builder’s tea,” it is strong yet restorative. The black vanilla tea base is a balanced mix of bold, malty Assam and citrusy sweet Ceylon black teas (in traditional English Breakfast or Irish Breakfast style), with a sprinkle of creamy vanilla as well as malva flowers and safflowers to add a pop of Plum Deluxe signature color that reflects the thoughtful attention that goes into every cup.

Very nice flavor. Will order again
Bit more Vanilla would help. I had to add some sweet cream.
Not my favorite
I guess I'm just used to all the other wonderful blends at PD with different, stand-out flavors, because this tea just tasted very bland to me? I really wanted to like it because I'm a fan of normal English Breakfast, but this was just a very plain tea. And I really love vanilla-flavored things too! But I think I'm definitely in the minority - lots of other folks love it!
The best English Breakfast
I did not think I would like this since I tend to favor teas that taste less like tea and more like other stuff. I was surprised how much I enjoy this and it has become my go to morning tea.
Love the hint of vanilla, one of my favorite morning blends. Will definitely be ordering again.
