It’s not often that I see iced teas with an oolong base so that caught my eye when I was looking through the drinks in my local health food store for something interesting to quench my thirst. As a bonus it’s low in sugar (only 4g in this one compared to the 30g(!) you’ll usually find in your generic Lipton Brisk).

I can taste right away that they used a dark oolong for the base; it’s not a bad oolong either, with slightly roasted, bakey notes and no unpleasant astringency. The mango and passion fruit flavours are rather subtle, and I find myself wishing that they were maybe a touch stronger. It’s an interesting combination of flavours but it works out to be a rather nice, refreshing, and slightly sweet, all-natural drink.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
