Vanilla Orchid

Good Evening!!

Whew, It has been a while since I’ve made a tea tasting post, so get ready, becuase I am back. Tonight I will be reviewing Davids Tea Vanila Orchid. This is a Wulong tea, for more info you can check out my post about this type of tea: https://callabri.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/let-get-wulong/

So I had the vanilla oolong from David’s tea in December, but it was replaced by the vanilla orchid, so I decided to try it out. And it is also part of my goal to expand my knowledge of wulong teas. So I stopped by DT yet again on Monday morning and got this tea.

First Steep: On the bus ride to campus this tea drove me nuts with it’s enchanting and creamy/ vaniilla-y smell. The scent of this tea is so rich and inviting. The taste is light and creamy, kind of ice cream-like. It has a rich dark green, almost light brown colour. The taste is smooth and not too overpowering. It is a very cheerful drink.

Second Steep: My friend was with me at this steeping. She said it smelt like apricots. To me it was very much the same as the first steep in terms of smell and taste.

Happy Sipping and until next time,

Calla!
