drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
93 tasting notes

Big thanks to Sil for sending this my way!

This is the second oolong from David’s Tea that I’ve had the opportunity to try, and it did not disappoint. I got a very solid 3 steeps out of it (adding 30s each time). The fourth would have very likely also been good, but I didn’t feel like going another round.

The dry leaf smells like sweet, juicy peaches. I could smell it all day long! The first steep had a very strong and sweet apricot flavor, which was a nice surprise. The peach flavor really came out in the second steep, which was accompanied by a peachy aftertaste that lingered for awhile. By the third steep, the fruit flavors were a bit muted, and the taste of the oolong base came to the forefront. I never really could taste the almonds despite seeing several large slivers in the tea.

I bet this makes a fantastic iced tea as well. I’ll have to try it out soon!

Bio

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
