Hey! It’s my 111th tasting note! Onto the tea review… Despite being exhausted from work today, I took a trip downtown to grab a cup of this tea. I couldn’t find a parking spot to save my life and ended up risking a parking ticket while I went into the cafe (the only cafe around here that serves this tea). It makes a pretty golden cup of tea and the leaves expand tremendously. The taste is of oolong tea (somewhat astringent!) with a floral note and a hint of something that desperately wants to be milk or cream. If I try not to concentrate too much.. I almost, ALMOST get a scrap of smoothness that could be interpreted as the milky quality. It’s not bad.. but there should be a bit MORE of that sweet cream taste. I’m looking forward to trying other milk oolongs out there and don’t think this one is the very best.

I’ve heard nothing but bad things about The Republic of Tea. Wait until you try the Milk Oolong from DT that I’m sending you. You’ll be in love.

I cannot WAIT for DT’s Milk Oolong. Seriously! I am so very excited.
I don’t mind The Republic of Tea’s Good Hope Vanilla Rooibos, but I have to say that I’m not super crazy about their teas.
