Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet, star anise is supported by a cocoa note and the aroma of good Ceylon black tea.

Liquor: Golden brown with a slight cloud.

Flavour: Comforting and familiar, yet cutting edge and new at the same time. The tea notes are enhanced and supported by the anise while the cocoa lingers in the background. The coconut adds a body and sweetness to the liquor.

Could it be, no way, a new tea?!

I hate anise and everything like it… this might be the first new tea in a while that I don’t purchase! :(

Looking forward to coming in this week to try this one. It sounds interesting. I was curious in finding out what the TOTM was and this doesn’t cease to intrigue me further. Love the name.

Dry Leaf Nose: Intriguing and complex nose. Sweet and fruity.

Liquor: Bright pink and clear liquor with a complex aroma that follows the dry leaf nose.

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
187 tasting notes

Dry Leaf Nose: Oolong tea underpins a prevalent vanilla aroma. The orchid is very much in the background.

Liquor: Light green liquor with a sweet vanilla aroma, and hints of orchid in the background.

Flavour: Quality jade oolong flavour shows a bit of carefully controlled oxidation and many rollings that have exposed much of the precious tea oil to the water. The orchid character has been drawn from the leaf and is in balance with the vanilla.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec
Michelle

Ooh, that sounds fantastic.

Amariel

Smelled this tonight at one of my local stores, but was sworn to secrecy, which I upheld, and it smells soooo yummy! I can’t wait to try some!

Oreole

I love this tea… Steep only 3 minutes it make the vanilla be the star of the tea..!:)

Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet notes of banana and chocolate.

Liquor: Brown liquor with a sweet and a ripe banana-chocolate nose.

Flavour: Amazing banana cream pie flavour – the chocolate is rich and appealing, while the banana has the ripe taste of those used to sweeten pies and confections. There’s even a hint of that rum-like character you’ll find in ripe banana.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 7 min, 0 sec

Haven’t had mint and coconut together. Sounds yummy!

Helena

Coconut milk reminds me of mint for some reason… I drank it straight from the Coconut in Mexico and I still can’t figure out why I think it’s minty :D
