drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
501 tasting notes

Yes yes YES!

When I saw the list of Spring 2013 teas at Davidstea I knew immediately that I’d want this one. Super fruity teas I can almost take or leave, (Fall and Winter at DT are by far my favorite seasons thanks to all the comforting dessert blends they come out with), but seeing as how I’ve been experiencing the wonders of oolong lately, and I have a passionate love affair with coconut, I was thrilled to see this on the list.

I hurried over on my lunch break and got a big bag of this stuff, because after smelling it in the store my suspicions were confirmed – I was in love. Tea love.

Noteworthy – it is literally a light tea because 40g was not pricey! The dude couldn’t even fit 50g in the bag! Obviously I’m going back for a blue tin (and an elephant mug), because this is a cupboard staple as of right now.

92 degrees for about 4 min. It was a nice light color and the taste was buttery, creamy, smooth, everything I’m learning that oolong is. And then there is the coconut. It is so complimentary you guys! Probably because I love coconut so much I had to concentrate to separate the flavors. But that’s because they work so well together! And I don’t find there to be anything artificial about this. I’m bringing it to work tomorrow so I can be in heaven all day.

Yessssss.

Hello!

So here’s where I am now. I had jumped head first into the world of teas after Davidstea opened in my city a number of years ago. I gave up coffee and became a huge tea freak. From there I joined Steepster and started ordering teas online like a madwoman (not that anyone here would know what that’s like…)

I was swappin’ up a storm and drinking like 6-7 cups a day and I had this tremendous stash to get through…..then. I got pregnant in Spring 2013 and my baby played a funny little joke on me by turning me into someone who had zero interest in drinking or even smelling most teas. I wanted only coffee all the time which was hilarious because of course you can’t really do more than a cup a day when you’re pregnant.

Anyway. In December 2013 I had my baby girl, and now I’m on maternity leave and though I still LIVE (I cannot emphasize that enough) for my morning cup of coffee (or two…), I am trying to get myself excited about tea again, because I have TONS.

So my mission, which I choose to accept, is to first sip down all the samples I have, sent to me last year by lovely Steepsterites, pre-baby.

Here’s what I love (or I did before, and am trying to again):

Butiki teas in general because the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base

Harney and Sons Paris is my all time favorite tea.

Mariage Freres and Kusmi are also on my awesome list.

I love creamy earl greys.

Also have an appreciation of oolong.

I have a mega stash of super flavored teas to work through, or I may try to sell them if I decide they are no longer for me. The sip downs will determine!

I love swapping!
Please note my Cupboard contains everything I have including minuscule samples of teas so it is not intended to be reflective of what I have available for swap…

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
