drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
426 tasting notes

Man, is it hot outside! Our run this morning was not fun. And hot tea in this weather is a little hard to take. So, I made iced tea! I’ve been meaning to cold brew this one because hot, it’s too coconutty for me. I didn’t have time for cold brew, so I just brewed it hot and then poured it over ice. I didn’t brew it double strength and this turned out to be a good thing. Of course the ice diluted it, but for this tea, that made it more drinkable for me. Yay! I might still try a cold brew, but right now I’m happily sipping my third glass of this tea (third steep iced). The coconut is much more muted, but definitely present. It’s pretty creamy too. Nice! Glad I found a way to enjoy this tea, and cool off too!!

Running in all this hot, humid weather is definitely a challenge! It’s getting a little easier, but it’s only getting hotter. :) Glad you had this tea to cool off with!

it was very humid, and all of a sudden too. i swear i missed the breezy weather transition days. i must have blinked or something.
i ran a race this weekend and a handful of people were sitting in the woods with cramps and dehydration all through the last miles. way more people than usual.
but you did it!! yay!

Good for you getting out there! I’m way more tempted to want to run on the treadmill in this kind of weather than in the winter when it’s 15 degrees. So far this summer I’ve avoided the treadmill, but it really has put a damper on trying to get speedier.

Thanks, All. Treadmills are so boring. I think I’d rather take the heat, but it can get really bad around here (up past 100). Yesterday morning wasn’t horrible…probably around 80 something. There was a breeze though! My husband and I try to run regularly, but the heat can sometimes make us lazy. We’re kinda fair weather runners! Ha!

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
