drank Grape Oolong Tea by Ten Ren
1320 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.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
