I love plum, and I love oolong tea, so I was curious about this organic offering. The dry tea smelled very strongly of berries. When brewed, the tea in my cup is still very fruity, and the dominant flavor is the that of hibiscus. It is certainly tart, but not unpleasantly so. The plum flavor does not come through for me. I am not a big fan of hibiscus, so this tea will not become a favorite. While I expected some hibiscus, I would have appreciated a better balance of the flavors in the blend.

I grew up drinking herbal tea, in many cases tea that I picked myself: chamomile, linden flowers, lemon balm, thyme, and hibiscus teas were an important part of my childhood experience. I learned to appreciate their delicate flavors. I am not new to black or green teas, but somehow, I had found them boring. My introduction to flavored teas—oolong, black or green—was a few years ago, and I’ve been hooked since then. Today, I still enjoy herbal teas. I’ve always been very sensitive to smells, so to me, the balance between flavor and aroma is very important. Tea is one of those small luxuries in life that allows us to combine our olfactory senses with taste.

I tend to like: herbal teas, “dessert” teas with vanilla, chocolate, or other flavors, and floral teas.
