After spending my morning on Steepster and wandering over two or three Milk Oolong review, I knew just what tea I needed to make when I got around to it. I couldn’t find my DavidsTea Milk Oolong, but I knew exactly where this one was and I am not in any way disappointed. It’s so creamy and fresh and delicious…Milk Oolongs will always have a special place in my heart. And I even took a break from my mason jar mug gasp So yummy…I can’t seem to put it down.
This new mug is the love of my life. Seriously, I’ve not used anything else since I got it. As a Southern girl living in Toronto, this behemoth is a dream come true. And it’s huge! Which is awesome, but I would not recommend trying a new tea in this because if you don’t like it, you’ve still got 25 ounces t drink XD. The infuser is just as big, which is great, but a touch hard to clean. It’s heavy and stable and looks great in my collection. I recommend it to everyone and anyone.
I am an idiot. No, seriously. We sat down to a yummy pancake breakfast, and as I opened the butter, I could smell something rancid. I sniffed the butter and it turns out, yup, it was the butter. Fast forward to me getting distracted by yummy pancakes, slathering them with said butter.
Combine that with my lactose intolerance and I am Not Feeling Well. Luckily we found our tin of this little beaut and my sweet wife is keeping up a steady supply for me. It calms my tummy right down and I love the taste. Not to mention it makes my cat SUPER cuddly XD.
Oh, I love this tea. It’s all about the tried-and-true favorites for me today, it seems. Big glass of this baby and I’m loving every sip…especially now that it has cooled off. Our new condo is so freaking hot all the time that hot tea just wasn’t doing it for me. Seriously, it’s been way below freezing here in Toronto for weeks and we’ve had the heat off, the building is just that hot. So I’ve got some teas cold steeping and I let this tea cool down and it is glorious. All blueberries, all the time. Makes me want to make a blueberry pie!
Hello old friend, I have missed you. We’ve been moving to a new place and most of our teas were packed up about 3-4 months ago, so I’m glad to have them in my hot little hands again. I’ve been craving Orange Blossom for days, but the tin is in a box we haven’t found yet, so this is a lovely substitute. It is a touch weak, but I blame the massive mason jar mug and my impatience in steep time. Still, it’s like falling into the most delicious almond cookie. This will always be a favorite of mine.
Made a big cup of this in my new DavidsTea mason jar…holy cow this sucker is huge! But onto the tea. I agree with the other reviewers who said it’s like a creamier Read My Lips, but it doesn’t have the chocolate aspect, which makes me very happy. The girl in store told me it tastes like Santa’s Secret, which it does…to a point. The mint is more…minty than Santa’s Secret, and it doesn’t seem to have the same vanilla creaminess. So I guess it’s more creamy than Read My Lips but less creamy than Santa’s Secret. I only get the faintest hint of coconut. Overall, I love it and if I ever run out of Santa’s Secret, I’m glad to know I can fall back on this. However, I won’t be stocking up any time soon, because I already have so many teas that are so similar (Read My Lips, Santa’s Secret, Cocomint, to name a few)
I am so glad I like this one more than I liked the Aloha Pu-erh. I love the rich berry flavor, the pu-erh keeping it from becoming too sweet or too tart, it’s just…mmm. It’s perfect. I didn’t even mind the hibiscus, and I’m a huge hibiscus hater. But I think I need to stock up on this one.
Add my vote to the "blegh"s. It smells so dang good in the bag, but it tastes like warm, slightly sour, milk with a fruity after taste. Blegh. Saving the rest of my sample bag for the wife, but I don’t think this is one we’ll be adding to our collection any time soon.
