drank Ruby Oolong by DAVIDsTEA
82 tasting notes

Today I was craving something comforting. University has been very stressful lately and I decided to take the day off from school, skip all my classes, and just breathe. I haven’t ventured into the interesting parts of my tea collection in so long, it’s just been a rotation of Cream of Earl Grey, English Breakfast, and Coco Chai Rooibos. I’ve decided to start up doing these tasting notes again, they’re a really good way to hold yourself accountable to sipping down an overgrown collection.

I absolutely love Ruby Oolong, so this was a great way to kick off this new informal sipdown challenge I’m giving myself. It’s fruity and so incredibly fresh tasting, I get a lightly floral finish and notes of dates and apple in the body. I forgot how smooth this tea is – I’m not a fan of “greener” oolongs but this is a nice rich oolong. It steeps such a gorgeous amber too.

Flavors: Apple, Dates, Floral, Smooth

I’ve been drinking tea for as long as I can remember — my mom used to have “tea time” with me every afternoon, drinking some Twinings Earl Grey with milk and sugar in my grandmother’s antique tea cups. Before I went to university, I worked at a DAVIDsTEA in my hometown, which solidified the obsession.

I’m in my first year of law school, after completing an undergraduate degree in political science and anthropology. I use she/her pronouns, and I’m vegetarian (not quite vegan — I still drink blends that contain milk-based ingredients). My other hobbies include fragrance, crocheting, journalling, skiing, hiking, and reading sci-fi and fantasy novels.

Apple, peppermint, caramel, vanilla, coconut, jasmine tea, malty black teas, sweet blackberry leaves, guayusa, white tea, peach, strawberry, raspberry leaves, Chinese teas, anything smooth and creamy!!! Highly caffeinated blends have my heart.

Ginger, cinnamon, peppercorns, hibiscus, alcoholic notes, stevia. I prefer teas that don’t contain dairy or artificial flavouring.

85-100: A-range. Excellent and exceptional.
70-84: B-range. Very good.
55-69: C-range. Average.
40-54: D-range. Not good.
0-39: F-range. Strongly dislike.
