So… looks away shamefully
I’ve done something that I never imagined doing, something that six months ago, I would have decried with all of my tea might.
But… well, it’s made me happy, it’s brought me those fleeting sips of heaven that I crave so desperately!!
Yup, I added sugar, and plenty of it, to my oolong. AND milk. Yup, and I stand by it! it’s brought the standard of my tea experiences up to a tolerable level of badness.
It seems to work here because well, since I can’t taste the natural sweetness in teas, adding sugar just brings it back to how it normally tastes, for me anyhow. and the milk, ehhh that was simply an inspired decision. It tastes just like a simple red rose tea this way. Hey, I’ll take what I can get! pretty darn great when compared to nothing at all…
Not so much as the cup cools, it kinda gets gross then… but when hot, holy yummm :)
Anyhow, I hope everyone here is well. Miss you all xx

Amariel

I routinely add sugar and milk to teas. Not all tolerate milk, but I find they all benefit from a little sugar. Sometimes I add a lot. I’ve got a bit of sweet tooth. ;)

Indigobloom

Oh I add milk n sugar to black and rooibos all the time! but an oolong? this is my first time :)
I try to watch my sugar intake, diabetes runs strong in my family *sighs

Amariel

Oolongs I do both ways…sometimes, just with sugar, sometimes milk and sugar. I think it depends on how dark the brew is. I have definitely got to go easier on the sugar though, as I am having tea a lot more frequently these days, and it adds up fast.

Jillian

I think milk and sugar thing would work better with a dark oolong like this rather than a green one like a Alishan – which tend to be plenty sweet on their own.

Indigobloom

I used to add alot more sugar actually, but over time I got used to adding less and less. Until this tastebudless thing happened lol
I’ve never tried an Alishan, it sounds rare…

Jillian

Not particularly rare, although higher grades can certainly be harder to get your hands on. Here’s a link to an Alishan on Adagio’s site that’ll tell you a bit more about it: http://www.adagio.com/oolong/ali_shan.html

ohhh I’m afraid to look! I can’t buy anymore til I can taste again. Til then, I’m wasting my tea by drinking it, essentially, so I stick to the cheap stuff :S

thanks to indigobloom for a sample of this one. Once again i am underwhelmed by another tea emporium selection. they just don’t seem to have it going on for my tastebuds. At least this one doesn’t taste BAD but it’s very much an average cup of tea. There’s a sweetness to this one along with a roastiness.

This is an average oolong for me. Slightly roasted, requiring some sweetening, but with nothing special to make it stand out. Even a second steep did very little for me. I definitely prefer my greener oolongs to this one.
