702 Tasting Notes
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 :)
Hm the scent of this on both dry and steeped makes me think of a carbonated grapefruit beverage.
2 for 2 today. Geez. See what happens when I have to wake up at the crack of dawn and miss my morning tea? Bad choices.
If anyone’s interested in the rest of my 12g sample I picked up, you’re welcome to it.
This one smells pretty yummy but I believe the hibiscus I’m smelling is tarnishing the actual strawberry rhubarb scent. But it steeps a really pretty red/purple colour!
This is my first cup of tea today because I had to leave at the crack of dawn this morning and chose sleep over my morning cup of English Breakfast :( With any luck this will make it all better. All the employees at my store are always raving about this one. Oh and of course I also picked up Green Seduction and Midsummer Night’s Dream to try.
Well all I’m getting is hibiscus. Perhaps I steeped too long? Bleh.
If anyone likes this one I’ve got ~20g left :)
