drank Citron Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
15 tasting notes

I got this tea as a sample in my first ever David’s Tea order. This was also my first oolong tea, and I absolutely fell in love with it. I made that tea sample stretch as far as I could, and then ended up buying some in one of thier stores. I was a little sad about the quality of the tea I got from the store, it was a bit stale compared to what I recieved in the sample. I suppose the teas may sit in the store for a long while, I don’t really know. But, I happily drank it anyway.

The smell of this tea makes me smile. I can’t help it, it’s a big dorky toe-curling smile, and I’m pretty sure I do the whole mmmm-mmmm thing out loud, wether anyone is around to hear me or not.

However, to every love story there has to be a bump in the road, right? I debated for a long time about wether or not to post this. I considered just throwing out the tea, possibly all of my david’s tea, and finding somewhere else to get my fix. But I’m very indecisive, and tea like this is so new to me…Maybe I’m being dumb about the whole thing.

The problem? You see, I found a bug in my tea. I know, it happens. It’s a natural product, bugs are everywhere…they’re bound to be in tea somewhere at some point. Maybe even take it as a sign that it’s a good tea, since even the bugs think it’s yummy. I wish I would have taken a picture, but it didn’t occur to me at the time. I was so freaked out that I dumped the tea and doused my teaware in boiling vinegar about a dozen times.

How do you recover from finding one of the icky-er creepy crawlies in your tea? I’ve since found one in another tea by davids, but it was a different and less freaky bug. I get the feeling I’m over-reacting…but there is.

I think I would freak too if I found a bug in my tea. Ugh! Im so sorry this happened to you. I think it might be inevitable that we find the occasional bug mixed in with our tea but yeah. Not pleasant. You’re not over reacting at all.
