Ok, third amazing latte this morning. We are on a roll with the Naturel Milk.

This is an interesting combination of ingredients: roasted oolong, turmeric, ginger, peppercorn, and honey crystals. I don’t normally like this type of oolong but it goes so nicely with everything here. There are already roasted honey malt notes in the tea and the spices just kind of build off of and improve on that.

I sipped on this without milk, and then with milk. Both were enjoyable cups, but the real luxury cup emerged after adding the maple syrup. Now I have the perfect cafe-style yellow-hued turmeric tea (golden milk) latte. I’m a little weirded out how much I love this because at all stages I can still taste the leathery, woody, honey malt oolong thing that I generally don’t like. But now? Life is good. Lattes are good.

I’m steeping this again just to see if it can take it. (Edit: It totally can and it’s arguably better than the first steep, which is kind of typical of oolong, eh? It’s so smooth now. And also turmeric).

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My favourites are teas like Milk Oolong, Silver Needle,and Japanese Sencha/Gyokuro, or fruity and floral flavoured ones. However, I generally enjoy ALL the teas, including a good old cup of Earl Grey or Breakfast blend.

Subjective Rating System:
I don’t give a lot of low ratings out, since a) I tend to grab tea I know will appeal to me, and b) I don’t have a lot of strong dislikes.

90-100: Favourites. The Desert Island Teas.
80-89: Loved teas. Possibly staple-worthy.
70-79: Good teas, but I’m less likely to repurchase. Minor quibbles.
60-69: Ok teas. Likely a few preference and/or quality issues.
50-59: Cup of meh. Will do in a pinch.
11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea.
1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This tea is the embodiment of the primordial swamp, an unholy abomination. It’s very gross and I’m almost positive it doesn’t exist.
