drank Monkey-Picked Oolong by Teavana
180 tasting notes

I don’t normally like Teavana products; they’re (in my opinion) overpriced and too often fruity. But as they are the only tea shop local to me, I decided to stop in when I was out of tea and didn’t want to wait for an online order.

I really surprised myself when, after a sample, I spent an exorbitant amount of money on a small amount of this stuff. But honestly, I don’t regret it. It’s flowery – but not too flowery. It’s mild – but flavorful. And man, is this oolong smooth. I probably won’t purchase it again because of the price, but as I always steep it for at least 3 cups, I don’t feel too bad about indulging myself just this one time.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
