I tried to cold-brew this, with mixed results, but kept the leaves because… well, it’s an oolong and I could probably try to get a couple hot steeps outta the remaining leaves, right?

And personally, so much better hot. Reminiscent of the hot-lemonades my dad used to make me when I was sick, but more… sophisticated? Yeah, that’s gotta be it. This is the second steep of these leaves and it’s got the oolong creaminess balanced by the lemon astringency, with a teensy hint of the floral jasmine at the end. Lovely AND delicious.

Verdict: not a fan of it iced (sorry DAVIDsTEA sales-associates), but delightful when hot. Might have to try and stretch the leaves for a third steep…

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
