One of my favourite straight oolongs, and thankfully it’s in a price range I can afford, haha. It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, and as soon as my cupboard clears out a little I think I ought to bring back some of this.

Do you find this one very floral-y or more roasty?

I got more floral notes out of this one, for sure!

drank Ginseng Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

I think I got ginseng confused with ginger, because I remember this tea tasting not at all like I was expecting it to, LOL. And that’s probably tainting my rating of it, but so be it. Not terrible, but there are definitely other oolongs I will reach for before I pick this one.

drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA

One of my favourite teas to make iced, so this BETTER make a comeback – I’m still hoarding on to what’s left of my stash for as long as I can. This tastes almost like juice and I can mix it with just about anything else to add a bit of extra oomph of flavour.

drank Gold Rush (organic) by DAVIDsTEA

Again, another tea that’s a bit to expensive for my tastes. The coconut and caramel taste is a bit of a weird one to me, so I don’t like this as much as most other people appear to. I think I like my coconut flavours blended with fruit above all else. The cup of this I had a while back was good, but I don’t think I’ll go for it again on my own.

drank Long Life Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

One of the first teas by DT I ever had! It’s been a while since I’ve had this one, but I do enjoy the fruit notes that this one has – I’m a sucker for anything that has peach as an ingredient. I remember the first and second steepings being so much better than a third, so I think just two goes it all that I can get out of this one.

I think I need to either use fewer leaves with one, or steep less because my first sample of this was oh my god potent. More rooibos than blueberry, and that is not a good thing in my book. Next time I make this I’ll rate it again and see if the flavour improves – I hope it does, because I was excited to see a blueberry flavour.

A decent, generic breakfast tea. I like it better than bagged blends, but I guess I was sort of expecting more from it? Maybe I’ve become a bit of a tea snob over the past couple of years!

drank Bravissimo by DAVIDsTEA

Way too much licorice for my liking! I originally drank it to sooth a sore throat, and while that worked, I’ve found ginger will also do the same thing for me and I like ginger teas far better. I’m not upset I tried it, but I won’t be getting any more.

drank Oolong Supreme by DAVIDsTEA

Again, another expensive blend that I won’t be getting a lot of. I’m kind of ‘meh’ on straight oolongs, but I’m realising that you get what you pay for and this one is delicious. Definitely a higher quality than what I’m used to – sadly my wallet cannot made the jump, LOL. I added a little bit of milk to this one on my first couple of steepings, but maybe next time I’ll just have it plain.

drank Butterfly Jasmine by DAVIDsTEA

Very light, very sweet, very jasmine-y and very expensive, LOL. I only have this because I used some of my free tea allowance from the Frequent Steeper program because that is the only way I am ever going to be able to afford any substantial amount of this. This is one of the best jasmine greens I’ve ever had, but due to the price, it’s sadly one I cannot keep a large stash of.

Haha I did the same thing! This was the first tea I got when I was able to redeem my points! XD

raven22

And I may do it again when the next round of points is released, as I am sadly down to only having enough for one more cup!
