I am in love. I could spend the rest of my life with this tea. Seriously. This tea is sweet, hot and spicey. Smells and tastes delicious. You can taste the oolong tea, but it is well balanced with the spicey flavour. There is a very slight orange citrus flavour, it is more sweet than tart. The sweet spice is strong but not so strong that is burns your tongue. It also leaves a nice sweetly spiced aftertaste. This would definitely make a great after meal tea. I can imagine it blending well with a fruity tea/herbal. Looking forward to more cups of this and experimenting with blending.

I was served a spiced mandarin a few months ago. It was so good. I thought I would get something like it. That’s been a challenge! Nothing seems just right- too spicy, too much orange, not spicy enough. I just cant find that nice balance. I had called and ask her where she got it – it was a swap and wasn’t properly labled. So I’ll never know, but the hunt continues.

I would love that. Look through my cupboard and see what you would like for swap.

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.
