This tea has the perfect flavor. It’s not too sweet and it has a smooth finish. I absolutely love this tea.

I received a sample of this with my latest David’s Tea purchase. It has big tea leaves—a fantastic sign. I used about half of the sample because I still don’t have a proper tea ball, and I’d rather let such pretty leaves unfurl in a wee bit of water, than cram it all in this microscopic tea ball I have and not get the bestest flavor.

It smells amaaaaaazing! :) And the taste? Out. Of. This. World. I thought I’d tasted white tea, but no… I’d only had shadows, powder, imitation teas that couldn’t hold a candle to this stuff. I am now, officially, a fan of white tea. It’s sweet all by itself, and has a round, grassy flavor—no funky aftertaste (those who have delved into the black hole that is supermarket bagged tea may know the aftertaste I’m referencing shudder).

Yup. I’m impressed. And I just used half a teaspoon. And my water was probably way too hot.

Flavors: Sweet, Vegetal

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 0 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

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

Preparation

Welcome to Steepster! Guess genmaicha isn’t for everyone. :)

M

Thanks! I’m still getting the hang of it all. Genmaicha isn’t my favourite, but I’d be open to trying it again (maybe a different brand?) in the future. I’ve changed my mind before.

Fjellrev

You never know, it may grow on you or you may find a brand whose genmaicha you prefer. And if not, there is so much more out there!

M

That is very true. I’m open to any and all teas, so I don’t doubt I’ll try more genmaicha in the future.

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!!!

Kittenna

You can do it!! :D

Fjellrev

You know know, it could be water retention. Just keep going! I know, I can get really discouraged when I put so much into weight loss and you plateau or even gain when you’re trying so hard, but it’s all about the willpower.

carol who

Willpower? What’s that? ;-p
Thanks!

Fjellrev

Haha yeah, sometimes the willpower tank is running on low, especially when you’re at it for so long. :)

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 am a vanilla soy milk lover. :D

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

Weird squash taste, not really “pumpkin-y” and not good either.

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

This tin is seriously going to be empty SO fast. xD It’s just amazing! Love it!

Kirkoneill1988

taste like cake?

Fjellrev

Ha, looks like no regrets there, eh? It’s about time I grab more.

This tastes like maple icing to me. :)

Lariel of Lórien

It tastes like birthday cake ice cream to me.

Cameron B.

That sounds awesome… I love maple icing AND birthday cake ice cream!

Ost

Yes grab more! Everyone grab more!! Awesome tea!! :D :D

Megan Low

Love this one! My stash is dwindling as well and I’m thinking its time for a tin of this!

albertocanfly

any tea that successfully pulls off the cake flavor should be hoarded :P tehehe

Ost

Hahah I like how you think, Albertocanfly!

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

I almost did the same yesterday! But went with Apple Custard instead.

This tea tastes exactly like birthday cake. I added two spoonfuls of sugar to it (just regular spoonfuls of standard sugar, nothing fancy) and with the great health benefits of Rooibos, it’s great to enjoy on a nice afternoon-or any time of day when you’re feeling like birthday cake!

This is creamy and mellow, with a slightly sweet taste. I was amazed at how much volume the leaves expanded to once this was steeped!

(Day 3 of 24 Days of Tea.)

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

FYI- Teavivre’s version is awesome. :)

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

Preparation

I had never before tried a milk oolong, so I didn’t know what to expect. This is like a cup of hot milk before bed. Liquid comfort food.

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.

Intensely creamy, almost as if it comes with a hint of condensed milk in every sip. Very smooth oolong flavor as well!
