696 Tasting Notes
This one smells just like Gold Rush – evidently the mulberry takes over anything else in the mix – which is just fine cause it smells pretty damn good. And added bonus – it costs less :)
It brews up an interesting green colour but still smells just as good. It smells so sweet but hopefully like Gold Rush the taste will be just perfect and not as sweet as the smell.
From what I remember of Gold Rush this is tasting just like it, perhaps with the slightest hint of nuttiness from the macadamia. I’m enjoying it.
This one has a bit of a bizarre smell. Not bad, just bizarre. Like the oolong and vanilla are battling for first place. Comes off kind of yogurt-y. Maybe? Hard to say.
It’s yummier than the other flavoured oolongs I’ve tried but I’m still preferring the Tung Ting Vietman unflavoured I had.
Almost like a plain oolong with a hint of vanilla at the end of the sip.
This one smells good dry but delicious steeped. Like banana ice cream (except warm).
This one’s alright, I may have steeped it too long because I’m getting a hint of bitterness (although I steeped for 4 mins and the package says 5-7 mins). I’ll finish the sample for sure but I don’t think I’ll pick this one up again.
So I’ve tried 4-5 oolongs now from DavidsTea. All of them flavoured of some sort. And I didn’t enjoy any of them. Agh frustration. So tonight on my trip to DavidsTea I picked up this one to determine if it was the flavours OR the actual underlying oolong tea I wasn’t loving. So here goes.
YES! This one I’m enjoying. It’s certainly got a distinct taste, but I am liking that. PHEW. I was worried there for a moment it was the oolong. And I bought 2 more flavoured oolongs tonight as well (Vanilla Orchid and Happy Kombucha) so perhaps I will enjoy those. Or perhaps for me it will be unflavoured oolongs. I’ll keep you posted.
2nd steep just as delish :)
