drank OH LA LA OOLONG by Tealish
440 tasting notes

Tea no.1 of Tealish experiment:

I have decided to revisit some Tealish teas that I have purchased last spring. I will log them as I taste them. I feel they were never given a fair chance, as I am so hooked on David’s teas, I have basically neglected all «The Others». So the first bag I picked out of the hat is: Oh La La Oolong.

I’m a big fan of oolong, and though I am no expert, I can assure you the star in this tea is definitely NOT oolong. In fact, if this would have been a blind test, I would have guessed black tea for sure. I know oolong is a cross between black and green, so there must be different stages of oxidization, that might explain it. Having said that, the thing I love about oolong, is the delicateness of it and yet, so tasty at the same time. I find nothing of that here.

It tastes like a fruity black tea, nothing exceptional about it. Maybe that’s why it wasn’t even posted on Steepster, «very forgettable» as Simon Cowell would say. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s not a waste of money, there is no bad taste here, it’s just too plain and not what I expect from oolong.

So which one is next? …I’m picking again from the hat…let’s see… Queen West Blend! I hope the experiment will be more pleasant this time around, it better be cause I don’t know how long I can stay away from my David’s stash!!!!

Time to update this profile of mine…it’s 2015!!

I am French Canadian, so please forgive me if my English is not always perfect :-/

My relationship with tea in a nutshell:

I’m married to straight Black. I have torrid love affairs with Oolong and Puerh. I party with Green and White occasionally. Flavored are not my BFF, I usually stay away from them.

Love Steepster, a place for tea lovers, where you learn and share with others.

About me:

I am a free spirit, I let people be who they are and expect the same in return.

Books! I love classic literature, but also modern and pretty much anything that captures my attention.

Music is also something I can’t live without… From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Animal and nature lover, amateur photographer.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember.

Drinking tea is a sensorial experience. The name in itself “Camellia Sinensis” lingers the promess of an adventure for the senses…

Not a big «swapper», but will occasionally. Not because I don’t want to share but because I’m trying not to hoard so much.

Also, I have narrowed down the teas I really like over the years, and I don’t feel the need to try and buy everything the way I used to. (Maybe I have become a tea snob? Sigh…)

My ratings: because I pretty much drink only teas that I judge exceptional, my ratings are usually high. Don’t be shocked to see lots of 90’s and a few 100’s. That’s because I’ve had my share of crapy teas and I’m done with that ;-)

You can find me on Instagram here, I post about my tea sessions mostly, but also about the beautiful nature that surrounds me, and my fury companions :-)
