drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
150 tasting notes

Another tea that I was introduced to as part of the Davids Tea advent calendar. I must not have added it to the cupboard though. Or reviewed it.

I steeped this tea twice, didn’t get to the 3rd one. I’m pretty new to the whole oolong thing. but I did enjoy the tea. Sort of a cross between green and black.

I smell and taste vanilla and that’s about all, I don’t get the creamy flavour people are describing. I had a taste of a milk oolong yesterday and that was more smooth and creamy.

Flavors: Vanilla

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 25 OZ / 750 ML

My passion for tea started at a very young age, thanks to my grandmothers beautiful china tea cup collection. I use to brew Tetley’s or whatever version of Orange Pekoe she had in the cupboard and pick out my favourite tea cup to use. It wasn’t until I was in my late teens that I really started to develop a passion for it. My town had the Urban Tea Merchant and it was there I was exposed to high tea and the very fancy Mariage Freres brand. When they switched over to The O Dor, my girlfriend and I found salvation in going for a lovely cup of tea and decompress with some tea scones.

It has since become an obsession. I have a tea cupboard, filled with a very large variety of teas. I also use the Breville Tea Maker to make my tea. I favour black teas, with a close second being North African Mint Green Tea. Because I have the luxury of working from home, I get to enjoy a wonderful cup of tea every morning, and the journey resets daily.
