drank Oolong Supreme by DAVIDsTEA
91 tasting notes

This was a nice treat courtesy of my DAVIDs frequent steepster points from last quarter. It’s been a lovely day of treating myself. I have the day off of work and started with a float tank session this morning. Tonight I’m taking in the performance of Ballet Boys so it’s a truly full-sensory day off.

This twisted leaf oolong has a delicate light texture before being brewed up (50 grams fills a whole DAVIDs tin) and smells just like you’d expect a standard oolong to. Once brewed though, there’s a distinct roasted flavour which emerges and is quite pleasant. There’s not a trace of bitterness and instead of a creamy profile the roasted and almost nutty flavour creates a more complex oolong than I’ve experienced. At $23 for 50 grams though, I think it’ll be reserved for points redemptions and treat days!

Flavors: Grass, Nutty, Roasted

I’m a mid-thirties tea loving guy on the West Coast of Canada. Only really got into tea in the last 6 years largely because my exposure to tea was always bagged rather than loose before that. It wasn’t long for me to become hooked with loose leaf tea though.

My favourites are fruity black teas, chocolate and dessert teas and fruit/nut blends.

Other interests include films, meditation, reading, writing and computer games.

Working on living healthier and sweet teas are a nice alternative to full desserts and other sugary snacks and drinks for me.

I only rate teas once and use the following spectrum:
100 – Only one tea receive this from me. It’s that good.
95 – Only three teas receive this from me. They are that good.
90-94 – These are top rated teas for me but fall just short of my top 4 or ultimate tier teas.
80-89 – Very pleasant, enjoyable. Would definitely purchase again but wouldn’t necessarily rush out for it.
70-79 – Decent teas. They had their charm while they lasted but I’m undecided about buying them again.
60-69 – Alright teas. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing amazing either. Unless it’s on sale, I won’t buy again.
50-59 – Meh, I can take or leave this. There’s something about it that borders on dislike for me.
40-49 – Sorry this one’s just not for me.
30-39 – Definitely not for me. Wasn’t able to finish it.
0-29 – How dare they call this “tea”.
