drank Prosperous Peach Oolong by Teavana
79 tasting notes

This is the first sample I will be trying courtesy of Chuckieroy, it is a very peachy smelling tea, which my nose approves of hopefully my taste buds share the same sentiment after it has steeped.

Steeped it takes on more of an Oolong aroma, can definitely smell the tea base in this one. On a side note Iron Goddess of Mercy Oolong is a way better name for Tie Guan Yin tea, I mean that is what it translates to and it would help companies from using different spelling!

Initial taste is a very soft peach flavor followed by a fairly noticeable Oolong aftertaste. The peach flavor as other people have mentioned is pretty light, I do taste it but its not overly powerful, it could use a little more peach in my opinion.

This is the second tea I have had from Teavana, the other one I found to be very light flavor wise as well, but not being a big Teavana guru it could just be that the focus more on the tea base than the flavor.

Overall its certainly not a bad cup of tea, but leaves me craving a nice peachy cup of Davids Long Life Oolong, for peach Oolongs it is pretty much my benchmark tea.

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?
