drank Pineapple Oolong by Lupicia
5 tasting notes

This is my first review on anything at all, especially tea, so here goes!~

I had been sitting with my grandmother, talking about virtue and morals (and boys) while the TV was on the news channel. The room was dim and I had just finished taking a bath when grandma asked me if I wanted to try a new Oolong tea. I agreed eagerly and she had me first smell the tea leaves.

They smelled very sweet already and the smell of pineapple was very strong as well.

The Oolong was very bitter yet very floral on the first brew so I and my grandma brewed it again, sour grimaces on our faces all the while. With the second brewing, in grandma’s Gaiwan, the Oolong was so much sweeter and creamier than before on the first taste and smell, without adding any sweetener. The color of the tea looked a smooth and buttery gold and reminded me of sunlight on still waters of a river or lake. Even without sweetener, the tea was very very floral with just a hint of pineapple, just enough to make me imagine myself in a tropical paradise sitting under palm trees and humid sunlight, and the greenest ferns and grass at my feet.

With a spoon-tip-full of sweetener, the Oolong came to life.

The floral flavors burst out onto my tongue, I savored the creaminess as it flooded my mouth, and after I swallowed, the taste became very buttery and silky, leaving a aftertaste of sweet pineapple and sugary butter.

I drank the remainder of the tea in my cup, straining to restrain myself from guzzling it down all at once, and was very sad when it was finally finished. I enjoyed this Oolong by Lupicia very much, it only being my third Oolong ever; it is delicious, as long as it is brewed more than once for a more concentrated flavor. :)

Profile

Bio

I am the second child out of three biological girls, and the second oldest out of six children and several foster children off and on. I am a sixteen year old composer of choral pieces and orchestral, sometimes symphonic, pieces. I have a huge passion for music and creative fantasy writing; I’ve been working on a novel for six years, hopefully to be a series called “The Door to Ellm.” Though I’m not very close to finishing…

I usually try to go and hide from the vulgar masses who scream and gnash their teeth (in other words, my five little brothers).

My favorite kinds of tea are the very floral ones or the candyish cakey flavored ones~
I can appreciate earthy teas as well, although I do not prefer some of the very smokey teas.
