Hot, this is…okay. Good, but not as mind blowing as iced. Still, it’s pretty dang good!

This probably has the best reviews out of the new collection so far – though its green with raisins so I’m really conflicted :p

It has absolutely no raisiny taste, we were worried about it too.

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

This tea is so surprising. It tastes cool and refreshing in a way I didn’t think was possible from a black tea. I love the melon flavor and it’s very good. That said, I need to try it cold, but I probably won’t restock.

Edit: This was my first cup of tea in my new whales nordic mug. Ghost whaaaaaales….

Got a cup of this iced to go as we left Davids and it blew me away. It reminded me of the grape oolong bubble tea I get at Ten Ren’s and Real Fruit. It’s amazingly delicious, it tastes like a roasty, real grape dream. I can’t believe this is a green, but it is amazing.

Oh, you’re right. It DOES taste like a grape oolong although I can’t recall where I’ve had it… I’m happy this tea didn’t disappoint!

It’s so good, I want to marry it.

Doesn’t Butiki carry a Grape Oolong?

drank Peaches & Cream by DAVIDsTEA
1196 tasting notes

While sitting outside Davids, chatting with the lovely Christina, I had a cup of this iced and oh my gawd. It was so good. So, so, so good. I see the comparison to a peach gummies, but ermagerd, I nearly walked back in the store and bought a ton of it. But we have samples, so I’m going to try it hot and coldbrewed before investing in more.

My tea box at home is stuffed with all of the samples you gave me. STUFFED. I couldn’t even fit it all in there, considering the large bags you gave of the Silver Buds Yabao and the Milk Oolong from Tealish. It’s gonna take months to get through it all!

Bwahahahaha. And we’re already planning your next bag full.

drank Milk Oolong by Tealish

I took my cold steep of this with me out today and it was so, sooo good. The oolong really came through and it was creamy and refreshing and just so delicious.

drank Crazy Mint by RiverTea

Stole another cup of this before packaging it up for a swap. The green is more prominent in this cup, but I still get a hint of orange and spearmint.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA

I love this tea. I wish it wasn’t as rooibos-y as it is, but I still love it.

drank Milk Oolong by Tealish
1196 tasting notes

Mmmm, I love milk oolongs. Loooove. Of the ones I have, this is my least favorite, even though it is quite yummy, so I’m adding it to the sipdown pile. Especially since RiverTea supposedly has a great Milk Oolong.

Even as I was making it, though, I began craving Birthday Cake from DavidsTea, so I knew I wouldn’t be coming back for a resteep. But the leaves had barely begun to open after the first cup finished steeping, so I poured them into my Mason Jar to let them cold brew. I love watching oolongs unfurl.

The tea itself is just lovely. Lovely! The roastyness of the oolong and the creamy milk….guh. Hands down one of my favorite teas.

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!
