drank Coconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
552 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!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

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.
