This is a loose leaf flavoured oolong blend.

Smell of dry tea: smells like champagne with strawberries. The strawberry scent is slightly artificial but not offputting.
Appearance of dry tea: mix of oolong leaves, dried fruit peices, flower petals, all varies sizes.
Appearance of liqour: golden pink, slightly brown colour. Medium density.
Taste of liqour: you can taste that is it supposed to be champagne with strawberries but the taste is not quite right. The strawberry taste is quite artificial. I believe the rose is supposed to give a champagne type flavour, but it is more rose and less champagne taste. I needed to add rock sugar for some sweetness and to make the tea more palatable. Very dry tasting without sweetener.
I am warming up to this tea just a little bit.
I will most likely not purchase again.

This tea has been growing on me but this is such an accurate description… I like it best iced with sugar.

I will have to try this one iced, just have had hot so far.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
