drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
627 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!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
