drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
1172 tasting notes

Got a cup of this iced, to go, so I could be caffeinated from the Fall Out Boy show I went to tonight.

I didn’t need it. I was actually home by 11:10. Yeah.

As for the tea, the person oversteeped it and kept stirring it. So it was a little murky and verging on bitter. The pineapple flavour kept it fresh, thankfully.

Now, pasta. Soon, bed.

That sucks. I find they always oversteep the oolongs and greens in the store.

Cavocorax

Which… I don’t get. If they don’t know how to do it, WHO can you trust?

OMGsrsly

It’s like a conspiracy theory… they don’t want you to actually like the tea so you go back and, umm. That doesn’t work. ;)

The last time I had it the person used a timer and it wasn’t oversteeped. In fact, it was DELICIOUS. I was hoping for the same this time, but all I got was Meh.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
