drank Honey Oolong by IDEStea
141 tasting notes

It finally came today, I’m really excited to dive in :D I’m brewing in my 90ml Gaiwan, using however many leaves are in this sample (it’s filled about a fifth of the Gaiwan).

Oh, this is so delicious. It has sweet, thick.. creamy notes in the first steep, it’s really nice but not complex; not until the second steep.. a whole world unfurls in my mouth: smokey, fruity, hot chocolate, coffee, honey, peach, dates, cream, peas. The third steep brings out more of the cocoa/coffee, it’s growing darker with each steep, and astringency is getting stronger. It actually tastes a bit like davidstea’s oolong supreme, but just way more sweet and thick and creamy. Seriously this Oolong is very very good.
There’s more roasty and dark fruity notes later on.

I’m actually sad that I only have a sample of this. I might have to buy more .

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Coffee, Cream, Creamy, Dates, Fruity, Honey, Peach, Peas, Roasted, Smoke, Sweet

Hey :) welcome to my steeps!
I really only ever drink straight teas, every once and a while I might have something flavoured, but odds are I won’t ever write about any of those. All of my reviews are done using my 120ml gaiwan unless otherwise specified.

I’m mostly into Sheng, Red tea and Oolongs right now, but I also can enjoy greens and whites sometimes.

My cupboard is NOT up to date. I tried for a while, but it’s too much effort, and so many of the teas I have just aren’t on here and eh.

*This system is used on my first 100 reviews, I’ve decided not to rate teas anymore because I’m definitely not qualified to be objective about quality yet and it’s just pointlessly subjective numbers and that’s not really helping anyone
