drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA
828 tasting notes

Today is a DAVIDsTea sipdown day, which is not intentional, but isnt a bad thing at all.
This starts by tasting greener, and it becomes more creamy as it cools, and the vanilla flavor is really allowed to come into its own. This is so dense that it reminds me of vanilla yougurt, especially with the oolong green-ness, which is like vanilla greek yougurt.
Theres no urgency to this, but I might get some more of this at some point. But for today, its a sipdown!

When you wrote about it starting off “green” flavored and coming into it’s own as it cools, those were my exact impressions and I am new to tea so I really thought I’d done something wrong when I saw how dense it was! I have not had one dense like that yet so I was pretty surprised at the mass of green in my tea-maker lol. I also feel the same way about it..decent enough but not enough to make me “crave” it by any stretch. I’ll use up what little I have but can’t see myself buying this again.

Glad to see that I’m not alone in this impression! Thats what I love about Steepster, its a shared group of impressions. Its quite an unexpected tea.

Its gone! Whee! Cue the parade and the floats!
When I first got this, I didnt mind it, though I found it disapointing, but after working my way through a full can of it, I can safely say never again!
SIPDOWN!

It’s surprising what a relief it is to get a dud out of the cupboard!

Woohoo! I love when you get rid of the last of a disappointing tea.

This is the end of this.
Today again its all strawberry, and very little of the chocolate flavor. This was not my favorite, so I am not going to get more of this.
I’m glad I’ve got some sipdowns happening, as I may have bought some more tea….. ooops. And so close to black friday, too!
Erp.
Well, Sipdown!

Chocolate. Well, chocolate ish.
I have plenty of chocolate tea left, but I’m going to probably stop buying anymore chocolate flavors, mostly. I find that they’re almost always disapointing, with a couple of exceptions (hello read my lips).
But as I say, its going to take a while to sip all of this down.

I feel the same way about chocolate teas.

I was hunting for chocolate, but I’ve come up strawberry today. Hmm.
Another DavidsTea cup that I find a little puzzling. Hmm.
Well, its still a nice enough cup of tea this evening, if not exactly what I was hunting for.

Time to stop sipping black tea this morning.
For a bagged Oolong, this is pretty good. Mild and mellow, and I’m drinking it with no headache today!

Ah yes, the last pot of this sweet tea. It was a lovely addition to my October, with its honey sweetness and actual candy corn! I hope it comes back next year!
Sipdown!

I’m a believer in seasonality. I dont always, but mostly I try to eat things in season, partially because they’re fresher at that time, and partially because it just feel right.
That said, I dont eat candy corn, though I dearly love it, much past Halloween. I have enough of this tasty blend for one more pot, which I may finish up today.
But November is filled with flavor delights as well!

Its back in stock at Peets! So I got a cup of it during my lunchbreak, along with a new tin of the stuff. Its still “autumn” in my tea drinking mind, but I cannot help myself with this. I really like Winter Solstice, and had images of going back when I felt a little more “winter” only to find it all gone. And theres a lot in a tin, so it will last plenty long.
Happy sigh. Its been a long Monday (and its only midday), but not a horrid one. And with this on hand, I feel a bit more ready for the rest of the day, including my Nanowrimo word count.
The usual goodness, spicy and warm with a hint of citrus.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
