drank Vanilla Swirl by DAVIDsTEA
306 tasting notes

I’ve actually been drinking tea all day and didn’t think to write any notes. My sense of smell is impaired by still getting over being sick though, so idk if my perceptions will change for this tea later or not.

This is the clearest tisane I have, I think. Most of them brew up red from hibiscus or kind of tan colored. This one tinted every so slightly to yellow, but barely. The most noticeable thing to to me is the artificial sugar. I might be completely wrong and there’s no artificial sugar, but it just straight up tastes like artificial sweetener in warm water, dashed with vanilla extract. And I accidentally licked some straight vanilla extract last week while making dessert, so I know. (lol, it was dripping down my hand and I didn’t stop to think about it first. It tasted like straight vokda. Gross.)

From what I could smell of the tisane, it does bare a striking resemblance to vanilla soft serve cones. I just can’t get over the yucky sugar at the moment.

I get easily excited and tend to get into the habit of collecting things I get really really excited about- books, fountain pens, fragrance, tea and any number of things. Mostly I’m just really excitable.

My favorites are oolongs! Also high for me are greens and ripe pu’erh. But I do like most teas and I’ll try most anything at least once. I just don’t like rooibos, smokey, or banana flavored things.

My name is Christina, but there’s also another Christina with a cat as a profile picture, so I go by Flyawaybirdie.

Feel free to drop me a message anytime. I love messages/letters/etc.

NOTE!: My cupboard is not up to date. Not even close. But it does have a bunch of teas I have pretty substantial quantities of, so I put them in there anyways because I’m unlikely to run out soon. Also, if I wrote a note on it and didn’t include a TTB name or a sipdown note, I’m likely to still have some even if it’s not in my cupboard, so feel free to ask if you want to swap!
