Perfect for late afternoon tea!

Just opening the bag of Dancing Vanilla Bean was a treat to the delightful scent of the loose tea leaves. Perfect for late afternoon or with dinner due to being caffeine free. I enjoy it most with a touch of rock sugar. Will definitely order again along with the rock sugar!

I’ve been searching for months for a Teavana chai replacement and this is it for me. I love it!

SMELLS SO GOOD

I love this tea so much! It smells insanely good (and by extension tastes good too) and helps soothe bloating and my digestion system after a meal. Would highly recommend. I throw about a spoonful of sugar rocks in it too, it fits well with a little bit of sweetness.
