drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
79 tasting notes

I still think they need to change the name to Life Long Oolong, but eh that’s just me! This however is by far my current favorite Oolong to drink it just tastes great, will certainly keep tons on hand.

Dry this tea has a pleasant peach and apricot smell that is honestly fantastic, it is also a tin full of colors with all the fruit pieces, the tea leaves and safflower pieces, all topped off with pieces of white almonds. Steeping the tea will release a pleasant peach aroma throughout the room.

The final brew is golden yellow in color and peachy in aroma. It has a smooth creamy taste accompanied by a nice peach flavor, followed up with a sweet after taste. Only downside is this tea is only good for one infusion, I tried a second infusion on a cup last night and it was certainly not as nice to drink.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
