4 Tasting Notes


This is a really interesting tea – sweetly citrus, with the strength of rooibos behind it. The orange is a great addition to this blend. I had it at Kensington Palace Orangerie originally, but now its a staple afternoon or evening tea drink given that its caffeine free.

Fantastic oolong, with a creamy rich taste. I re-infused 3 times and although the third infusion was a bit weak, it held its own.

4 tasting notes

I used to live in China and am addicted to oolong teas. I was concerned that the pack didn’t say what type of oolong it was – tieguanyin, jade, oriental beauty etc, but I thought I’d try it any way as it was cheap. Unfortunately to me, it tasted like it had been stored badly – it had a slightly dusty, damp flavour. It became bitter after 3minutes of infusion. I wouldn’t recommend this tea if you like oolongs, there are better options out there, even if you have to pay a little more.

I first tried this tea at the V&A museum in London and really liked its refreshing taste. Unlike other jasmine teas that I’ve tried, it isn’t bitter in anyway – even when I let it brew for over 5 minutes, the taste was still smooth with a sweet, fragrant aroma of jasmine. The leaf itself is beautiful with big jasmine flowers throughout the leaf.
