Breakfast: Smoky Vanilla Black Tea

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 287 reviews

Tastes Like: vanilla custard, shortbread cookie, burnt toast
Feels Like: morning in a grand hotel

Our version of English Breakfast has exquisite Assam and Ceylon black teas with smoky lapsang souchong and vanilla bean. The aroma of warm vanilla custard fills your nose from the first sip of this velvety tea. Next, there's a pleasantly tannic bite with a gentle smokiness of ever-so-slightly burnt toast. Finally, the vanilla flavor returns as an intense note of freshly scraped vanilla bean. This delicate smoky vanilla flavor lingers. It’s made to be enjoyed with milk, but if you appreciate smoke, we suggest drinking it black. This tea will make you get out of bed.
A tea for lovers of malty sweet teas.

Wish it was smokier

I like this tea, but I wish there was a higher proportion of Lapsang Souchong in it. The smokiness doesn’t come through as much as I’d like. I’ve never had a tea from August Uncommon (how’d you choose that name, anyway?) that I didn’t like. And what I think is my favorite seems to change from time to time.

August Uncommon Tea

Thanks for your review, Kathryn L. Our name comes from one of our heroes, Auguste Escoffier. French cuisine as we know it was largely created by Auguste Escoffier at the end of the 19th century. He defined the mother sauces. He organized the professional kitchen and gave much-needed order to table service. We admire his methodical approach to food and service, which shaped French cuisine into what became the gold standard for chefs around the world. His name is the inspiration for our brand name, August.

Subtle

I have tried many of August's teas and this one is just very subtle. Not very smoky and not much vanilla. The other flavors are more interesting, like what I have come to expect from August.
