I was surprised by this tea. The post-steeping sent smelled like I had burnt the leaves, and I was dubious. However, it was nutty and rich. I really enjoyed the deepness of the flavor, and can’t wait to try this tea with some cream. I’ll definitely be finishing what I have left, but not sure if I would repurchase.

Yummmmm. Absolutely love this tea. Both the dry leaf and the brewed cup have a delicate, authentic sticky rice flavor. It’s wonderful on multiple steeps, and is absolutely wonderful mixed with a milk oolong as well. I could drink this tea everyday.

Yikes. While this tea looks beautiful, and smells nice and tart, all I can taste is stevia. It’s overwhelming and undrinkable. Such a shame…I wish DT would stop adding stevia to their teas.

Very similar to Adagio’s Vanilla Green, the Vanilla Oolong was similarly synthetic and unpleasant. I still could not finish the cup, but it was slightly less unpleasant than the Vanilla Green.

Very artificial tasting. The synthetic taste overwhelms the mouth and makes it quite unpleasant. Couldn’t finish the cup.

This is my favorite black tea. It’s incredible with a bit of cream and sugar. Love love love love.

This is another David’s tea that initially tasted great, but the aftertaste was so fake and artificial tasting.
