This blend is souchong (20) vanilla (30) Assam (50). I like the idea of a smoky vanilla tea. Both Lapsang Souchong and Vanilla tend to be intensely flavored, so I added them to an Assam, which I hope will be malty and strong enough to be noticeable. The souchong and vanilla components may need to be decreased. Perhaps 10/10/80 would work.
