Ingredients are listed as naturally decaffeinated black teas, sarsaparilla and natural vanilla nut flavor. The brew is a beautiful chocolate brown in the cup. The aroma even hints at chocolate. The taste is smooth and the vanilla does not overpower the drink. The package says to add milk and sugar. It takes on a vanilla ice cream taste when you do this. I actually preferred it without the milk, though it was enjoyable either way. Not bad. Not bad at all.
