drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
264 tasting notes

I have deleted my rating since after some searching, and after attempting to rebrew, I realized this is FLAVORED with milk flavoring. I looked on the website of DavidsTea, and looked at the ingredients, and saw this:

Chinese oolong tea from the Wuyi Mountains, natural flavouring*.
*For flavouring information consult our FAQ.

I noticed I couldn’t rebrew it while the flavors improved. For the cost, I expected a better quality. I’ve only had one other milk oolong before, and had amazing 8 rebrews from it, each one pumped with creamy flavor. Not with this “milk” oolong.

I DO NOT recommend this tea, as it’s a fake, and not worth the price.

drank Altinbas by Caykur

I had some Turkish tea on Turkish Airlines, and I was trying to figure out which tea they served on it. I was told at the Istanbul Airport this was close to it. This tea was for sure not it. I did not like this tea. It had a light smoky flavor, which is something I do not like in tea. I haven’t had that much Turkish tea, so I don’t know how it’s suppose to taste. I was not a fan of this.

drank Madupatty Tea by KDHP

I got this in Munnar, India. I bought this tea after watching person after person buy 3-6 bags, so I thought this must be the tea to buy!

It’s a very strong CTC black tea. It reminds me of an Assam by the briskness. The website notes the floral note. I really like this tea iced. I bought it within a month of it being processed. The freshness is something really special. The tea itself has the beautiful smell that the tea factories smell like.

drank Nilgiri Leaf Tea BOP by Chamraj Tea

I bought this while I was on vacation in South India. It’s pretty astringent. I’ve brewed it with lower temp water, and brewed for 3-4 minutes, and still has some astringency. It was pretty cheap (95 rupees/$1.30 for 250g). It’s an okay tea, nothing really special.

I love milk oolong, and this is an excellent of one. Rich, full on the tongue.

drank Coconut Oolong by Rishi Tea
264 tasting notes

It’s really difficult to beat Golden Moon’s Coconut Oolong. This is the closest to being as good, but still, not there. There’s suppose to be pineapple in the blend, but I don’t taste much of it. The coconut flavor reminds me more of coconut water than the meat itself. I prefer a toasted coconut taste if I have to pick. This makes for an excellent iced tea.

This is drinkable, just an average green tea. A little floral, mild. It’s the second Korean green I’ve had.

I never had green rooibush tea before. I drank this tea iced, and it’s naturally sweet, which I love! It’s quite lovely, and I am very impressed by it. I really can’t compare it to another tea, it’s just nice for variety. The peach flavor isn’t overpowering.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

drank Buttermilk Lemon by TeaGschwendner

I had this tea as a sample in the store, and fell in love. The flavor is so SUMMER AND BRIGHT!!! I had a warm in the store, and I knew it was destined to be amazing iced, and it is! The black tea base is so robust and thick on the tongue. On the packaging, it says it’s South Indian black tea. I really love the creamy taste of it, too. I think I like this better than their green coconut! I see myself buying this over and over!!!

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec

I love cooking, sleeping, reading, reggae music, and tea. I also enjoying reading about tea, the culture and ceremonies, and the diverse types.

I think most the teas I drink are 80% iced, but on some days, it’s opposite that, especially days off! I can’t believe it took me this long to try different teas. Better now than never!

Reading the reviews help guide me to the right tea. I have been turned on to so many delightful brews.

I am ALWAYS up for swapping. Just PM me.
