I'm a big tea lover and Fall and Winter are the perfect times to warm up with a nice cup in the evening. I have also found having a tea in the evening is the perfect way to may me feel full and even satisfy my sweet tooth. In the past I have written about Chocolate Teas, which I absolutely love, but there aren't many decaf options for the evening. So this post is all about Vanilla Teas!
Think of these teas as your after dinner dessert. Have them alone or with a square of dark chocolate. I brew a small pot and add 1 packet of a stevia sweetener to the whole pot. Then add a small amount of cream to my tea cup and pour. I think this is much nicer then just microwaving a cup and sticking a tea bag in. You will be surprised at how it will warm your whole body, and make you feel full guilt free.
These three vanilla teas in Decaf form are my favorite options for a cold evening:
Davidson's Coconut Vanilla - This is a wonderful dessert tea, definitely my favorite! I have found Davidson's teas at Whole Foods and few other specialty stores.
Celestial Seasonings Sweet Coconut Thai - I didn't really like this tea at first. I shared the first pot with my Mom and she liked it right away. It had more of a Chai flavor then I expected, but it grew on me and I love it now.
Stash Vanilla Nut Creme Tea - The truth is, as a brand I don't love Stash. The flavors doesn't always match the scent and that puts me off. But they are very inexpensive, easy to find and I wanted to give you easy to find alternatives. If this is only Vanilla Tea you can find, give it a try.
