drank Quangzhou Milk Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
1212 tasting notes

So the price of this stuff dropped by a third! Now I feel less of a need to hoard it.

I’m drinking this instead of eating lunch. My stomach feels meh today and I don’t know what to eat because my brain says tacos. So milk oolong it is.

I had milk oolong in mind when I got my yixing so now he’s really getting some use.

First I did a rinse because these leaves are so hard to get to open up with quick steeps.

First steep: Around 15 seconds. Yay I missed this tea! Orchids! Cream! Butter! I love the pinch when it hits my tongue, I can’t decide if it feels like pepper or like bubbles.

I wonder if Paula Deen could be convinced to drink this tea. BUTTER.

Second steep: 30 seconds. More color to this one, obviously. I love the smell. It makes me want to infuse butter with orchid petals. That might be the only way I could ever get a good use out of an orchid since they hate me.

Third steep: 45 seconds. I’m pretty sure this is wrong, that a yixing can’t possibly have an effect on its fourth use, but this tastes SO much more floral than usual and I am loving it. I am also amazed that the creaminess is still there and quite strong. This is probably the best cup so far.

Fourth steep: 1 minute. A bit lighter on flavor now, but still very floral. There is still a definite butter flavor, although it’s less creamy now.

Fifth steep: 1 min, 15 seconds. Not much different from the fourth. Starting to lose flavor a lot more. Notes are definitely still very much on the orchid side of things. With five steeps and a whole lot of other tea sitting around, I do believe it’s time to move on to something else.

What?? Price drop?

momo

Yeah, it’s $6 for 25g now.

Kittenna

Bugger, lol :P At least my free 50g was worth $18 when I got it!! Btw did you get your teas yet? I don’t remember…

momo

No, I have a feeling they’ll come today though. I should probably go check haha.

UGH!! Thanks Amanda! I’m shopping there now…ANOTHER tea to add to my cart! LOL

momo

Haha with their new red velvet cake one, I’m at $33 before their cocktail collection one comes out in a couple weeks. It is the only order I am allowing myself to make for at least two months until Black Friday comes around. I was so going for rest of the year but it’s not happening.

is black friday a good day for buying tea? i didn’t know this, getting excited now!

momo

I am so bad at remembering but I know there were some sales, 52teas had a discount on orders over $50, but for me mostly it’s my birthday is right around there.

Does it taste the same as it did at 9 dollars an ounce? I get suspicious when prices drop.

momo

When I order again, I’m gonna get another 25g and find out.

Cocktail collection? Really? Why must everyone have such yummy teas during broke season :(

momo

It’s actually nothing new tea-wise, but I love how it looks: http://ht.ly/drQVo

And those cocktails look deliciously refreshing!
