A sample I always wanted to try from David’s!  Thanks so much, Cameron B!  I used half the sample, so about a teaspoon and a half.  The scent of the dry leaf is very true to the name!  The first steep was less thrilling than the scent…. the cappuccino flavor was there (not much vanilla) but it’s such a weak steep — not too much black tea in the blend itself, and I’m sure it isn’t strong anyway.  I liked the second steep better —  still plenty of cappuccino flavor, which I didn’t expect for the long second steep if it is mostly relying on added flavoring.  This blend is like the caffeinated version of Fireside Mocha, which is another one l like more for that added flavoring.  It fits if I’m craving cappuccino!   Thankfully, I didn’t notice rosehips AT ALL. Not bad, but not a cupboard staple.  This is why I love trying samples of teas I’m dreaming about. :D

Cold, rainy Fall nights call for cozy teas.
I don’t think this necessarily reads “cappuccino” to me but what I do get is fruity, acidic, vanillic, sweet and creamy. For a black tea, it’s pretty smooth without any bitterness which I appreciate.

Not a fan of this one. The flavoring is very artificial-tasting to me, and then there’s stevia too. I’m not sure I understand why there’s so much apple, it gives an acidity that kind of works against the creamier flavors IMO.

Starbucks Vanilla Frap…is this you? I don’t drink a lot of coffee, can’t handle the caffeine. But I have had a vanilla frap from starbucks 3 or 4 times…years ago. I think this tastes like I remember. I like it..and it’s low caffeine. This one I am glad to have a larger size of. I’ve been drinking right though my sampler set. I had a back up of Davids Chai- which I don’t like and gave to my sister- not sure if she will like it, and this. I can’t wait to dig into it. Almost through with my sampler now. It does have artificial vanilla- probably helped by my vanilla sugar, which I make with tons of vanilla beans..It has a nice coffee flavor.

The initial taste is very much like coffee – but the aftertaste is a very full vanilla!

I really like this tea! I added two packets of stevia and a bit of unsweetened almond milk and it tastes divine. Very smooth and creamy.

Our annual New Year Star Trek marathon was a big success. I bought this tea for my sister, and she shared a cup with me. It has a nice coffee flavor, though not enough vanilla to deserve being in the name. Really I don’t notice vanilla at all, though it does have a nice desserty flavor. I’m enjoying it as a latte. Still prefer their fireside mocha flavor, but this one is quite decent.

Courtney

A Star Trek marathon sounds amazing! They’re on our list before we head back to work as well. :)

AJRimmer

We always try to pick episodes we haven’t seen in a while, which is difficult since we watch a lot of Star Trek :P

Courtney

I love it! Also, rewatching things I’ve seen before is all that I do haha! We’ve watched the newest three Star Wars at least 4-5 times each since the holiday began XD, now we’re watching all the Marvel movies in order. ;)

AJRimmer

7 and 8 are two of my favorite Star Wars, so I can definitely embrace that! I have to wait a bit longer to watch 9 again because I’m pretty annoyed at all the wasted potential.

Courtney

My heart is broken over episode 9 too. I still watch it, but I’m so upset by it and to think this cast may not come back, I just can’t handle it!

DavidsTea Advent Day 7. I’m going to be lucky to finish all three tea advents by the end of January.

The coffee is strong in this one, with a sweetness I generally don’t prefer but feel like works well for the tea. I’m not a big fan of vanilla and this artificial version doesn’t much help. I could brew it and just smell it all day, if nothing else.

Flavors: Coffee, Sweet
