It tasted fishy! I sipped & thought “AUGHHH GROSSSS” and then left it a bit, thought: it could not have been that bad? But it was FISHY again??? D: So I gave up on it. But then my Earl Grey tasted like curry, so something might just be wrong with me today. o_O

O.o There must be something very wrong with you..Sounds like you need the Doctor.

It’s almost a year since I finished my Long Life Oolong but I remember coming across some “interesting” taste variations, depending on steeping and ingredient proportions. I don’t recall it being very prominent but I got a hint of fishiness a handful of times too. Sense of taste and smell are funny though ;)

Something happened to this tea with me too. Not fishiness, but whatever it is, the thought of drinking it now makes me gag.

Yikes. Do not want. I hope you don’t have a lot of it!

Ozli

HUH. Thanks, guys – maybe I’m not crazy! :-O I’ve only got a tiiiiny little tin of it (a couple more cups) but as it is, I’m kinda scared to try it again :P :P

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
