drank Choconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Backlog from last night. I would’ve preferred less licorice weirdness and more creamy nutella, David’s Tea.

Booo. Sounds like the Winter Collection has been a fail so far. :(

CrowKettle

Yeah, not overly impressed right now. The only one I’m ok with so far is the White Chocolate Frost. Tastes like Cocomint Cream, with white chocolate instead of coconut, and without the apples.

I haven’t even gotten to Coffee Cake yet.

Courtney

I didn’t even pick up Coffee Cake. The scent alone so strongly reminded me of Red Velvet I just couldn’t :(

Cavocorax

Courtney – it’s REALLY similar so if you didn’t like RV, pass on that one. It has the same oily cake notes as RV.

And CrowKettle, I wish they’d brought back Cocomint Cream! :O I miss that one…

Michelle Butler Hallett

Licorice … with oolong? GROSS.

CrowKettle

Yeah, it’s not particularly appealing.

I miss Cocomint Cream, and even Merry Cranberry right now.

OMGsrsly

I really want to try Merry Cranberry still. I think it’s still on sale, but I don’t need that much!

CrowKettle

I’d possibly split it with you If you’re ever tempted.

OMGsrsly

It’s the 8.8oz size, so.. I just. Idk. I’ll think about it. :)

Cavocorax

If you’re really missing Cocomintt Cream, Jackie T had Simpson & Vail create a copycat blend based on a sample – http://steepster.com/teas/simpson-and-vail/36741-jaclyns-cocomint-tea She says it’s nearly identical!

CrowKettle

I’ve been meaning to try that out actually. Thanks for the reminder, Cavo!

Profile

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green and black teas. Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but otherwise I like these flavours!

Ratings:

95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
