Recent Tasting Notes
This one is really not for me. I appreciate the complexity, but I felt as though the rice made it taste vaguely like soup. I normally love green tea, but I couldn’t finish the cup this time. On the plus side, I’m learning more and more all the time. I guess I’ve finally found a type of tea that really does not appeal to me.
Flavors: Chicken Soup, Grass, Rice, Salty
This tea saved my day. Thanks NayLynn and Brandon! I swear I tried 5 different tea samples today and nothing hit the spot at all. I think some of the samples have gotten old and they just were off. I then decided I had to have a “happy” tea, something to make me smile. And this was perfect. :)
Today at Weight Watchers the scale showed me up a pound :( so I have to really push myself to have my lovely dessert teas instead of all the seasonal treats. It’s so hard….. I know a pound isn’t much but I don’t want to let it start going up after finally reaching my goal. I lost more than forty pounds and cookies are not going to tell me what to do!!!
Always have wanted to try this tea. I’m quite impressed. So creamy and smooth. I haven’t had any milk in a long time. My husband is allergic and I try to keep dairy products out of the house. That and not having straight up milk has really helped improve my skin.
Is there any milk in this? Man my taste buds are so confused. The lovely vegetal oolong the silky, smooth milkish whatever it is that causes that flavor.
I had the chance to try this tea in my advent calendar. After reading some reviews I was a little nervous about making this tea and then jumping in the car to drive two hours but i made it anyways.
I added some vanilla syrup to it and was surprised how much I liked the tea. It is mellow, buttery, creamy taste, and with the syrup I added it added some sweet vanilla taste to which I enjoyed.
Not sure I would buy a tin of it, maybe a small bag to enjoy a cup every once and while.
Flavors: Butter, Cream, Creamy
Oooh, toasty! This tea is warm and inviting, with subtle green tea notes and a lovely toasted rice/rice cake flavor. Its nice and mellow, the perfect kind of cup for a stormy day (which incidentally, we are having). This is a tea I could drink cup after cup of in one sitting and not be bored or overwhelmed.
Flavors: Green, Rice, Toast, Toasted Rice, Toasty
Ah, I love this tea!! I haven’t had it in like 5 months. And Virginia had only sent me enough for a couple cups. So this is my first time having it since! I absolutely love it still!
It’s ever so slightly woody, but overall it’s super sweet and delicious!
Been a rough day, and I’m glad to have this to cheer me up!
So amazingly delicious!
I finally have a 100g tin!!!! Yah!! :D :D
Flavors: Cake, Creamy, Pancake Syrup, Sweet
I’ve been wanting to try milk oolong for a while now. Although I realize that David’s version probably isn’t the best quality available, I really enjoyed this tea! The leaves are HUGE…a scant teaspoon filled my entire infuser once steeped. The creamy milk flavoring balances beautifully with the sweet oolong base and it has a fantastic silky mouth feel. This is the perfect bedtime cup of tea!
EDITED TO ADD: After 5 steeps, this tea was still going strong! I was ready to move onto something new, but seriously impressed with how well the flavor held up over multiple re-steepings. Bumping up my rating!
Flavors: Creamy, Milk, Sweet
Not a very good Yin Zhen. A mainly stemmy taste that only has a fraction of the aromatic punch you’d expect. It’s not a bad introduction to white teas, but every other Yin Zhen I’ve had has been much more impressive.
Flavors: Peach, Pear, Sweet Potatoes
DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea: Day 3 out of 24
What a nice surprise, given that is currently my favorite oolong. Love that milky flavor, and just between you and I, if someone made a QMO scented cologne, I very well might rep that.
Lesson learned though: OOLONG LEAVES EXPAND. I tried brewing in my Zojirushi travel mug, and the leaves weren’t able to expand fully in the small strainer. The end result was noticeably weaker-flavored tea.
Love love love this tea.

Oh my gosh this smells like christmas and it tastes so good I love it so much.
I’ve been listening to Christmas music since September and AHH CHRISTMAS IS COMING.
Christmas decorations are already up in Disneyland!!! And everything is going to be up officially starting the 13th! Ahh I’m so excited for all the Holiday festivities :))
But this tea is fab and I love it so much. It tastes like lovely christmas aww ve lost my tea scale ugh :(
Got a sample of this from the very generous, Boychik!
Wasn’t sure if I’d like this one since I’m not a super huge chai fan unless it’s cloudy and rainy (and it barely ever is here, sadly >m sure that drinking the rest of this generous sample will help me decide about purchasing any this year though.
So happy I finally tried it! Definitely understand the hype! :D
Thank you so much for the sample, Boychik! :D :D
Flavors: Caramel, Pumpkin, Spices
Missed this last year, but my local DT had a bunch of 25g packs in the sale section, so I grabbed one. I rather like it – sweet and clovey, very Christmassy but without nasty hibiscus which too many Christmas teas seem to contain. I left the tea steeping in the mug the entire time, and it just got better – I would like to try it with proper infusions but I doubt it’s a long-lasting tea. I’m debating picking up another pack of it before it disappears, but being so heavy, it’s a pretty expensive tea by weight…. Also, best not to develop too much of a taste for a discontinued tea!
