drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

I know nothing about oolongs. There was much guesswork done here. It was not a total failure!

1st steep – 2 minutes: It smells very peachy and a little nutty. It actually smells basically just like the dry leaves. The taste is a little weak, I think next time I’m going to do a longer steep or add more tea (this time I used 1.5tsp/12oz). It’s a little mouth drying but tastes peachy and nice and smooth.

2nd steep – 3 minutes 30 seconds: I think this would be a good studying tea. Still quite peachy but I would like it to be more full-bodied. Much less drying this time.

3rd steep – 5 minutes: Weeeaaak! Definitely using more tea next time.

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
