My DAVIDsTEA friends told me about this one day (they were all ooh-ing about it for some reason, I forgot) when I walked into the store and I decided to buy a little sample of it to take home to try for myself.
It’s been sitting in the back of my cupboard for a month now and I’ve finally remembered to try it. (Was in the mood for oolong)
At first I couldn’t remember why they said I should try it, something about the taste..hmmm..
After the cup was brewed, I took a sip aaaaand nothing. It’s just a nice vegetal oolong.
Then seconds later after the first sip or two I didn’t realize but I inhaled through my nose and noticed this strange sweet after taste in the back of my throat. Like many on here said, it’s kind of artificial? I felt sick at first but it sort of grew on me. It’s a licorice-y (menthol?) kind of sweet. Very strange. I loved that the dry leaves looked like tiny green pebbles.
Don’t know if I’ll restock because it nearly made me upchuck but it’s neat.
