First of all thanks to Angrboda for sending this oolong tea to me, it’s the second time I taste an oolong. The other oolong I’ve tasted was called Dragon Eye Oolong, and that one was more a “black” oolong than a “green” oolong, and I have read that oolong teas varies from 8% fermentation to 85%, so that oolong was probably fermented by 60% – 85% I think.
This oolong is by the way much more green than the other oolong I’ve tasted, but it still got some black tea taste.
The dry leaf smells of course of raspberry, but it isn’t that sweet raspberry smell, it smells quite natural and unsweet. There are pieces of blackcurrant in this tea, which really surprises me since it’s just called Raspberry Oolong. The liquid tea smells natural too, and doesn’t has an overpowering sweet “nose”.
The liquid tea has an ever so lightly tartness to it, and is very silky in texture.
It didn’t get tannic or bitter, even though I steeped it for around 6 minutes. This is a really great tea, and I love that it both has a green tea taste and a black one, very nice.
I like this tea WAY better than their White Temple Tea.
Oolong is one of my favourite teas now.

Overview:

Appearance: Furled green/black leaves and pieces of raspberry and blackcurrant.
Dry tea-smell: Natural raspberry. Not overpowering sweet.
Color: Right between a green tea and a black tea, which means brownish-green.
Brewed tea-smell: “Tart” raspberry.
Taste: Very silky oolong, green tea taste and black tea taste, raspberry and a lightly tart aftertaste.

Hello
I’m from Denmark, and I have been drinking high quality teas since 2009. My favorite tea-brand is Kusmi Tea. Absolutely. So far I have tasted about 40 percent of Kusmi’s teas, which means about 35 teas. My favorite tea is Kusmi Tea’s Imperial Label. Everyone who hasn’t tried it yet, try it. Their Samovar OR their St Petersburg comes second. I do primary drink black teas, but also green ones. Especially Genmaicha.

I like green teas flavored, and black teas are to me flavorful, whether they’re flavored or not. I prefer plain, hearty black teas the old-fashioned British way; with a splash of milk. I would say, that the best plain black tea I have tasted is Darjeeling #37 or Russian Morning #24.
I like spicy teas too, and my all-time favorite teas are Kusmi’s russian teas. RUSSIAN POWER!!!!

I do not drink tea because it’s healthy, I drink it because it’s delicious!
