drank Monkey-Picked Oolong by Teavana
1212 tasting notes

Received some of this from silvermage2000 in our swap. I’ve always been curious about it but never purchased it, given its high cost.

It is good though, but not something where I’m like, oh I have to go out and get this now. I’m sure there are many cheaper alternatives that might even be better. I’ve only had one TGY but I kind of like the taste of this better, it seems more buttery. Now I’ll know to explore similar oolongs with an “orchid” taste then!

This is good on the second steep but I’m afraid that very shortly it won’t be worth resteeping :( Sure enough, on steep #4 it tastes like absolutely nothing.

The Thai Mountain Oolong is a bit on the pricier side, like this one, but a bit fuller flavour if you want to try another Oolong. It has that really lovely floral orchid taste, and its very smooth, and not at light as the Monkey Picked.

I do want to give that one a try at some point. I really wish they’d sell teas in smaller amounts with ones like these oolongs.

Yeah it’s too bad sometimes you have to get 50g, in case you hate it and can’t even have one more cup haha. But you can always get a cup to go if you just want to try it once. They’ll even make it in your own thermos if you have one (I hate paper cups, bleh).
