drank Grape Oolong Tea by Ten Ren
1351 tasting notes

Oh my goodness, this was amazing. My amazing wife drove me to work at Square One yesterday and while we were there, she ran to Ten Ren and got me this, complete with tapioca pearls. Yesterday was insane at work, the poor doctor didn’t even get a lunch break and ended up leaving an hour and a half late. This tea kept me going, though it took me two and a half hours to squeeze in enough time to drink the whole thing. But oh man, it was good. I didn’t get to see this one made, but I know the Watermelon Oolong is made with real watermelon, so I’m going to assume this was made with real grape. My co-admin could smell it from across the room, it was so deliciously grapey. And the oolong was very present too, even if they do steep it for longer than I would like.

All in all, this was a delightful way to help me power through a stressful workday. My mouth is watering now, maybe I can convince my wife to drive down for lunch at Panera and a Ten Ren stop! yum yum yum.

If you like this, try Purple Rain from Todd & Holland. I got some for Christmas. It’s amazing — very natural grape flavor + green tea.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
