And here’s another sipdown! That puts me at 100 tea! (And sadly, I look at my cupboard and think I need more. Maybe 10 different samples from DAVIDsTEA? /o\)

Anyway, this was from one of the oolong samplers from Teavivre that I’m happy I picked up, although I’m worried I’ll get all these oolongs mixed up. I think the Taiwan Dong Ding is my favourite so far.

And this one? It’s described as a beginner oolong – I’m comforted. It’s mostly floral, and a little creamy, and I think it reminds me of the monkey-picked oolongs? Hmmm. I think there’s a jasmine aftertaste to it as well.

Does anyone know which of teavivre’s oolongs are roastier than the others? I think I like roasty more than floral with oolongs. Thanks!

I like roasty oolongs too. Wuyi oolongs are starting to become my favorite. I have tried teavivres big red robe and it is definitely roasty and delicious.

Thanks! I think I liked the big red robe, but I didn’t rate it yet.

Also, I just realized Teavivre’s website lets you search oolongs by roastiness so I can look that way – Iron Goddess, Monkey Picked, Big Red Robe and Guang Dong Phoenix Dan are the moderately/heavily roasted ones!

Yes, it sounds like you need more tea. :D

100 is not enough choice for me. I like 150-200 :)

Cavocorax

Haha. Well once I sipdown some of my higher quantity teas, AND get a job, I plan to stock up on a bunch of smaller quantities.

It seems you love stronger taste of Oolong teas, you also can give Moderately Roasted a try, i think you will like it.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
