drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
100 tasting notes

This is the first time ever that I’ve woken up early enough to have a cuppa before work. Usually I roll out of bed and flail about in a hurry because I’m going to be late. I got a sample of this with my last order and have been dying to try it.

I was so determined to make this sample last that I think I understeeped it (I probably for about 1m20s). Regardless, it was very tasty. The pineapple was sweet and almost candy-like, which was most likely due to the bit of agave I had put in my cup. Not going to do that on the second steep. It tasted pretty thin and I didn’t get much of the oolong taste, and I’m hoping that it’ll pop up in the second steep.

Just brewed up the second steep (5mins) and I hope I have time to savour it before work!

Bio

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
