drank Coconut Oolong by SOKO Tea House
1617 tasting notes

This is amazing! Thank you so much OMGSrsly for sending me a little bit of this! I think this is possibly THE BEST coconut oolong tea I’ve ever had the pleasure to drink.

It’s creamy, almost buttery, with lots of coconut notes on a backdrop of fresh oolong.

Wow.

Thank you. I love how freakin’ generous people on Steepster are!
And now I’m at 149. :( But I will be sure to re-steep this baby!

Cavocorax

I wish I could have shared it with you. It’s just so amazing!

Also, if my Teavana order ever shows up, as well as everything else, I’ll be at 197? So much incoming…. Also, I’m so excited!

Sil

i may try to hit adagio on the weekend. Will let you know

What’d you order from teavana, cavo?

OMGsrsly

LOL. This one is just AMAZING, I know. Maybe I’ll send some to Sil, she’s been pretty nice to me. :)

Cavocorax

I ordered during the heavenly sale – grabbed some mint cacao, two different white teas that were $2 each, and the 12 Days of Christmas Sampler. A lot of it is backordered though, and there’s no record on the site of the 12 Day sampler. :( I emailed them with my receipt to ask what’s up because I want it. I thought it’d be a super cheap way to try a bunch of Teavana teas! (It was $17?)

I’m really disappointed by the lack of communication though. Also, when I filed a ticket for support, they reply was covered in ads. Not classy.

Sil

ew. not cool.

OMGsrsly

Aww, geez. That’s horrible, Cavo! I tried calling tonight and their hours are awful (for me). 8:30am to 8pm your time, I think. Is that an option for you?

Cavocorax

Well I’ve already got the support email in, so I’ll wait the 2-3 days they estimate it’ll take for a resolution. LOL. Well I was warned about Teavana.

keychange

Wow, that’s not good. But sounds consistent with their reputation, sadly.

I’m afraid to do a tea count…I’m guessing I’ve reached an all time high, & I’m still aching to place another ‘birthday’ order, LOL

Amariel

Wow. I’ve been toying with making some coconut oolong lately. Maybe I will soon.

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)
