Big thanks to Sil for sending this my way!
This is the second oolong from David’s Tea that I’ve had the opportunity to try, and it did not disappoint. I got a very solid 3 steeps out of it (adding 30s each time). The fourth would have very likely also been good, but I didn’t feel like going another round.
The dry leaf smells like sweet, juicy peaches. I could smell it all day long! The first steep had a very strong and sweet apricot flavor, which was a nice surprise. The peach flavor really came out in the second steep, which was accompanied by a peachy aftertaste that lingered for awhile. By the third steep, the fruit flavors were a bit muted, and the taste of the oolong base came to the forefront. I never really could taste the almonds despite seeing several large slivers in the tea.
I bet this makes a fantastic iced tea as well. I’ll have to try it out soon!
