drank Yellow Dragon by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

New rule: I will stop tasting teas that are not permanent, as it only leads to heartache in the end.

First impressions – I would have never bought this tea if it were not for the wonderful Anastasia at my local DT. I don’t like mint (except recently in Santa’s Secret). I don’t like lemon. This tea was not even on my radar, and she convinced me to try it before it was too late (never again!). It leaf smell is pretty nasty to me (but only because I dislike mint). The liquor smells like a concentrated version of the leaf, so still not a fan, however it is a beautiful pale yellow.

Flavour – Surprising! VERY mild. Oolong with a supporting role of something and a dash of lemon. I hardly taste the mint, yet the tea is so much more than oolong. Wonderful balance, and smooth flavour.

Loveability- It has this wonderful effect of making me feel cleansed and energized and healthy. It’s a great study companion. It helped settle my stomach. AND it didn’t get disgusting as I let it steep in my teapot for a half hour. Plus, (I’m probably speaking as a mint/lemon novice here) it is unlike any of my other teas, filling a gap I didn’t even know I had.

Damn you, DT, and your horrible habit of making teas appear only to disappear!

Hi Kay Kanada! I also enjoyed the yellow dragon oolong tea. I just checked on the DavidsTea website and they still have it for sale. Maybe they have decided to make it permanent?
