A big thumbs down… Thippppph!

I enjoy DAVIDs Oolongs, but this one was a bust! BIG TIME! To the point that I am happy I only asked for 10g. It’s very vegital, though I don’t mind a veggy taste it really does not mix well with the intense fig smell or the melon taste…

I’ll be happy when this is done.

Oh no! At least it was only 10g.

that’s what I thought when I first tried it!! but then I took a chance on a second and third infusion, those were much more appealing for me. Odd, I find that with greens, rarely with oolongs.

This Oolong left something to be desired, and I did three steepings and for the most part all I could taste was the carrots, they were over powering for sure.

carrot? I hardly found any! hmmm

Bio

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
