drank Vanilla Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I’m getting ready to make a few big tea orders, and a lot of the teas I’m ordering involve the word “vanilla”. I was worried I was going overboard, and that I don’t really love vanilla as much as I think I do…

…and then I had a cup of this. Mmm, vanilla. Yes, I love vanilla. And vanilla tea is my happy place. I opened this up hours ago to talk about how this just didn’t resteep well for me, but then I got distracted and the tea cooled considerably. Never mind. It resteeped beautifully, I just notice it more when it’s cool, like most teas.

The vanilla curls up with the oolong for a creamy liquor that just…mmm. I love this tea.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
