drank Vanilla Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
390 tasting notes

4 of 4! while i wouldn’t be diametrically opposed to a cup of this tea… in comparison to it’s david’s tea-mate ‘vanilla orchid’ this one is not nearly as brilliant. following that metaphor i feel rather as though i might have to squint to see it. however, neither is it the vanilla tea i like least from my 24 hour marathon.

the order (favourite to not-so-much): vanilla orchid by david’s teas, vanilla plantation by silk road, vanilla oolong by david’s teas and lastly vanilla black by harney and sons.

this last tea blend gave me vanilla buttercream again, but with an orange hint. i’m not sure exactly what i don’t like about it… it might be that it’s the combination of base teas? oolong and green… i can be a bit twitchy about hybrids sometimes.

either way, david’s teas surprised me today. i appreciate being able to support canadian business.

While I no longer adore their teas the way I used to when I first started out, I love their teaware, and I love the stores – they’re so open and friendly. I’ve never felt intimidated like I did when I wandered into Teavana. And, some of their teas are really good. Just others are gimmicky and expensive.

I hope that I enjoy Pumpkin Chai as much as I did last year and that they are bringing it back!
