30 Tasting Notes
This is a nice green oolong and I am enjoying it. It tastes more vegetal than floral. I think that I would rather floral. It is an expensive tea, and very highly rated. I am a little embarrassed to say that to me, it tastes pretty ordinary. I feel I’ve tasted it before in a less expensive form. I am going to resteep at a lower temperature with less water and hope for more magic.
OK, have resteeped. Still not impressed.
I quite like this tea. I am a grapefruit fan and drinking this tea is like sitting back and having some fresh grapefruit without it squirting you in the eye, and no worries about getting some of that bitter pith on your tongue. I don’t know about its BB and detox effects, but I do know that it is nice and refreshing to drink.
I am very sorry to say that my once absolutely favorite tea is now undrinkable (to me). The last time that I bought this, there were no flavorings. Now, they have added “natural flavorings” that smell and taste awful. Fortunately, DavidsTea’s customer service is amazing and I was able to bring this back to the store and trade for something without flavorings. The Pouchong Ooolong is pretty good.
