drank Monkey-Picked Oolong by Teavana
1858 tasting notes

I tried this one again today when my oldest daughter and I went out of town to shop. It was buttery, buttery, buttery! The end of the sip is nutty. Overall, this is a clean and light oolong, not smoky, and really delicious. Unfortunately, it is overpriced.

As a side note, we went to Godiva to get our chocolate of the month and they had marzipan hearts. JacquelineM has spoken of her nostalgic love for it a few times so that was what I requested. My daughter said she had never tried it but on Gilmore Girls they both spit it out. The sales clerk gave me a “there, there” look and told me it was an acquired taste, and if I didn’t like it she would give me another piece of chocolate. I thought it was quite good. Thanks for the inadvertent recommendation, J! And I am glad that I can now say I have had marzipan!

I agree it’s good but not worth the money

Mmm, marzipan is my fave. I could eat it non stop!

I agree too! Too expensive and marzipan is the best! : )

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
