This is a sample sent to me from Sil, who got it from OMGsrsly.
Aged cedar, peatmoss, shroom compost…
There is also an underlying sweetness & a hint of chocolate milk…
and a potent camphor effect, immediately felt in my sinuses…
I’m having horrible horrible allergies, in spite of all my efforts to the contrary…not the kind of allergies where your sinuses are stuffed full of gunk, I don’t usually get stuffed up in my head, I just feel a throbbing pain instead (yeah, I know, that rhymed, unintentionally, I might add, but when you’re a songwriter these things happen automatically).
Anyway, I’m leaving tomorrow for the annual pilgrimage to visit my parents in Orlando, FL (they are in Apopka actually) & as bad as my allergies are at home, they will no doubt be worse in FL, it is always so.
This tea is actually helpful in releasing the pressure on my sinuses.
Most Puerh teas help, so maybe I’ll bring some along for the visit…
soooo if this WERE something i actually enjoyed drinking, this would be up there in terms of teas. It’s got an excellent flavour to it and the tea is smooth and unassaulting. The oolong and coconut blend well together and thereisn’t much of a floral note. I’m just not a fan of coconut or oolong lol so it’ll never be up ther ein my books BUT if you like coconut oolongs, try this one!
thanks for sending this my way omgsrsly
yep…this is one of my favourite blueberry teas. Thanks for sharing this one with me omgsrsly i’m pretty sure this IS the same as the one MissB sent me, but either way i ama satisfied blueberry fan :) the rooibos isn’t overpowering and it’s a delicious blue berry tea…what more could a girl ask for tonight? NOTHING!
Sipdown of a sample from OMGsrsly!
I honestly couldn’t really tell you the difference between all of the coconut oolongs I’ve tried in the past, but I’ve enjoyed all of them, and this one was no exception.
I think my favorite is still the one from Davidstea, but this one was also very tasty! Creamy, buttery, and coconutty without tasting fake.
Thank you for the sample, OMGsrsly!
I have a hard time telling coconut oolong from different companies apart, but this sample, from OMGsrsly, has a sweetened coconut-cream finish that makes it stand out in my mind.
I did two steeps with the first serving and four plus steeps with the second serving. The flavoring holds up surprisingly well. I might even like the latter steeps better; I’m a sucker for mellow or smooth things.
Right now, I have a giant tin of Zen’s coconut oolong, which is still delicious. However, when I run out, and if I’m in the right area, I might go with this one instead. I just wish Soko did the e-commerce thing.
Flavors: Coconut, Cream, Flowers, Sugar
I am exhausted after an early and packed morning of teaching, and a large lunch including a alcohol. Nap time?
I saw this one peeking out of my stash at me and decided I had to have it. And now it’s brewed and smelling delicious and being too hot to drink. Mmm so much coconut macaroon. I had a HUGE one the other day at an art fair, and this is so much like it. Thanks again to OMGsrsly for my sample of this one!
Yay, a tea from my surprise package from OMGsrsly! And she put the samples in tiny individual bags that are one serving each. Such ease!
I love a good coconut pouchong/baozhong, so I am always up for trying a different company’s offerings. They are usually all similar but some stand out. This is a standout! It is one of these coconut pouchongs that tastes intensely like a coconut macaroon. Sweet, baked coconut and meringue cookies. YUM. Thanks for the samples of this one OMGsrsly, it is delicious!
Flavors: Butter, Coconut, Cookie, Sugar
This tea is just TOO good as an eggnog latte. And I’m liking the soy right now because it’s less thick and sweet than cow. Although… I have almond nog waiting in the fridge! (I may or may not have 4 litres of nog at the moment…)
Blueberry custard. Divine. Yes. Thank you. More, please.
Another one. As an eggnog tea latte.
Yes. Blueberry Rooibos EGGNOG latte.
It works SO well. Delicious fruity custardy amazing yum yum yum. I would highly recommend trying some fruity teas as eggnog lattes now.
Thanks for the comment about Blueberry Jam working well, VariaTEA! :)
(16 oz drink, mix of milk and eggnog)
I had some of this with a bag of plain tulsi added to the mix. Interestingly, I can’t really taste the tulsi. I can feel it a bit, as it has a somewhat minty cooling flavour, but I can’t taste it. The blueberry is strong in this tea. :)
I had a surprise trip to Ikea tonight. I have my friends car for the weekend, and she was going to bus to a concert tonight… only she realized she forgot her change at her BF’s. So I went to drop off change, and ended up playing with makeup then driving her there! And since I was downtown anyways, I picked up another friend and we drove out to Ikea to SHOP. :) I got some tasty things (cake! lingonberry-apple soda juice stuff! apple glogg!) and some pretty things (a rug! a tablecloth I can use as a bedspread!) and some useful kitcheny things (moose and hedgehog cookie cutters!). My friend got… furniture! Yay! She’s not looking for a permanent position for at least another year, so she decided to get some furniture for her place. This is exciting. I was concerned she was going to find a job in some horrible place and then I’d never see her again, or she’d find a job in some amazing place and I’d have to save ALL the dollars to go visit her. Which. #2 is definitely a good option, don’t get me wrong… but staying here is pretty awesome too. :)
Yum yum yum. A nice tea that doesn’t call for milk to be added. In fact, I think the hibiscus would probably end up curdling the milk, so it’s probably best if I don’t try adding any.
A nice, tart, fresh, blueberry-y tea.
Definitely a favourite. SO good iced in the summer. I haven’t tried a cold brew, I don’t think. I tend to not cold brew rooibos, but I probably should try at some point.
Made a thermos of this iced to take to see Guardians of the Galaxy last night!
I AM GROOT!
ahem Yes, well. It was a super fun movie. There are some language and story choices I’d have preferred to be different (Seriously they tried to stick in some love interest stuff?!?! Pfft. Groot and Rocket BFF 4 eva.), but that doesn’t change the fact that it was fun, had a great soundtrack, and I laughed a LOT during the movie.
The tea was awesome as usual. Delicious blueberry with a bit of rooibos in the background. It was a good choice for a late showing on a hot Sunday night!
Flavors: Blueberry, Hibiscus, Rooibos
I wouldn’t say that this is a “golden” Yunnan – it has a few golden tips but that’s about it. Having said that, this is a decent Yunnan – nice and rich. Yunnans are my favorite black so it’s not surprising that I like this one, but I don’t think it’s REALLY special.
Thanks Sil for passing a sample on to me.
I received this one from omgsrsly aaages ago, well at least in my world as far as swaps go :) I haven’t had time on weekends to really sit and enjoy my puerhs so it’s taken me some time to get to this one. This is an earthy, bold puerh. it’s not a puerh for those who don’t like earthy, mushroom sort of puerhs. I had a few steepings of this, and all were that strong delicious sort of wake me up kinda of puerh that i enjoy, though more so in the morning. Thanks for sharing this one omgsrsly!
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.
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!
Gave this to my parents today and made a pot for the family to share. It was quite tasty. It says 2 tsp per cup, but I used 4 tsp for a 3 mug tea pot, and it was good. Steeped twice. Left the second steep for about 20 minutes before I finished it, even. Still good.
I prefer teavivre’s keemuns, but this is pretty darn tasty! Mom likes it too. :)
