drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
475 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!

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

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! :)
