DTT order #2 has landed. Still searching for the perfect vanilla black.

The smell of the dry tea is a soft, creamy vanilla. It smells like quite a natural vanilla, not at all perfumey or like overpowering factory-made vanilla icing.

But unfortunately, the taste lets me down a little bit. Too much sweetness and not enough vanilla, in my opinion.

I wonder if it would make a good cold brew? Like a sweetened black iced tea. That just may work.

PS: Had a jug of this cold steeped waiting for me this morning and I was right, it’s much better this way. It’s creamier and more flavourful. It tastes like vanilla toffee.

Have you tried the vanilla black from zentealife? They have free shipping in BC, and fairly reasonable samples.

Fjellrev

I never heard of them before. I’ll have to try it out sometime. Why, is it your favourite vanilla so far?

OMGsrsly

So far I can’t stand vanilla teas, so I’m hesitating about ordering it! Just thought I’d mention it, because it’s not a huge cash outlay with the free-in-BC shipping.

Fjellrev

Oh, I see! It’s hard to find a solid vanilla. Thanks for pointing me to them!

Cavocorax

They have free shipping in BC? Is that new? :O

Miss Starfish

I think it’s only if you spend over $100? I thought I saw something saying $5 for BC orders though. (I’m from Victoria, so pay attention despite living in New Zealand lol)

OMGsrsly

Right now at least it’s free shipping in BC. :D I may have gotten sucked into ordering some samples based on this.

Miss Starfish

Awesome, hope you enjoy! :) I have loved everything I’ve tried from them thus far.

Cavocorax

Thanks – I might have to get some samples too. :P

OMGsrsly

Remember to look for and then enter your discount code. I didn’t. :/ thankfully I only ordered ~$15 worth of stuff.

Fjellrev

So I have ten samples in my shopping cart and don’t think I should do this. I JUST got two other orders in!

OMGsrsly

They’ll be there next month too, pretty sure! :)

Fjellrev

I ordered. :/ Haha, this place is evil sometimes. It’s so great of them to offer samples. Such reasonable prices too. I luckily didn’t need to enter a code? It just did it automatically.

OMGsrsly

Aww. My order didn’t do it automatically. Boo! Oh well.

Fjellrev

I wonder if you contacted them, they would adjust it. Or let you pick out $5 more of stuff if you could find something else. Because come on, $5 is still $5. :)

OMGsrsly

Oh, I meant the sale code. I did get free shipping, but I forgot to enter the sale code for, I think, 20% off.

Fjellrev

Ohhh, me too! I didn’t even think of that. Oh well.
