drank Pineapple Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
148 tasting notes

My DavidsTea order finally came! This was one of my free samples, so I decided to try it with lunch. I made it hot, but think this would be a better iced tea.
I can taste the oolong and a hint of pineapple, but the flavoring tastes really artificial. It also has a creamy taste and texture that I don’t typically associate with oolong. Not bad, but not something I would buy either.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Aww, that’s disappointing. I would like to try this one iced.

I was pretty excited about it too! It probably doesn’t help that 1) I love oolongs and 2) some artificial flavorings weird me out.

Ya. I like what I’ve tasted of oolongs so far and really don’t like artificial/perfume-y/chemically flavours.

Bio

I mostly drink straight tea, and some of my favorites are green teas and oolongs. I almost always have some sencha and tieguanyin in my tea cupboard (and if I run out, awesome, an excuse to buy tea). I do like some flavored teas, but can’t stand really sugary stuff so if it’s very sweet I probably won’t like it. I can’t drink milk so all my reviews are of tea without milk and sugar!
I’ve been getting into puerh the last few months.

Outside of Steepster I’m an English Lit major, and will FINALLY be graduating after the Fall 2013 semester. After that I plan on applying for graduate school to obtain a Master’s in Library Science. Currently I work as a student assistant in the Archives and Special Collections department of my school’s library.
I also like reading (of course) and playing video games when I have time for them.

I’m happy to send samples to anyone in the US or Canada. Just ask. :)
