drank OH LA LA OOLONG by Tealish
341 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!!!!

Bio

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

My relationship with tea in a nut shell:

I’m married to straight Blacks. I have torrid love affairs with Oolongs. My BFF are Greens. I socialize more and more with Pu’erhs. I have distant White acquaintances that I visit once in a while. I party with Flavored!

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 and what they want to be and expect the same in return.

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

As tea and books, music is something I can’t live without! From Bach to Nirvana, my ears know no boundaries…

Art is food for the soul…I consume lots of it.

Animal and nature lover, I will never let a fury friend in needs.

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember. But since I’v joined Steepster, my tea knowledge has emancipated exponentially.

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

As for my rating system, well it’s pretty much inexistent…Since I don’t write many reviews, I try to focus on the good stuff and will usually review teas that left a big impression on me.

Not a big «swapper» but if we do get to swap together, you’ll remember me, I live up to my Fairy reputation :-)
