4788 Tasting Notes
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea…
This is an awesome Oolong. Beautiful flavor – sweet, honey-esque with a lovely fruit undertone. Beautiful.
I love Oolong, and my favorite is Ali Shan, but, Formosa Oolong teas hold a very dear place in my heart. This is an excellent Oolong.
Backlogging on this one… I finished up a cup of this just a while ago. A nice flavor, stronger black tea flavor than that of the berry, which is just fine! The black tea has a pleasant, even flavor, nothing too overwhelming, a bit of astringency, a wee bit dry. Nice and comforting.
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending this tea my way!
I am still feeling just a little “off” – a little sluggish, so I need some Yerba Mate. Some mornings, black tea is enough for me, other mornings, I really need the power of the Mate!

It’s actually really good. I like the way the ingredients meld together to create a very unified flavor. It tastes very complete. Everything is smooth and in its place, and the taste isn’t lacking. It feels very good on the tongue and tastes rich and a little sweet (not too much) – it’s just a very pleasant tasting tea that I really like!
I really like this tea a lot.
Here is my full-length review of it:
I love the aroma of the dry leaf. It is very sweet… and reminds me of a candy shop. Perhaps not necessarily the smell you want to experience when you open a package of tea, BUT my sweet tooth and I don’t mind! I can see why this tea was chosen to be part of the Flavored Holiday sampler collection from Lupicia.
The flavor is quite yummy. Sweet and fruity but not overly so. I can still taste the fresh, leafy taste of the green tea. I suspect this would be even more delightful as an iced tea…
Enjoying another cup of this today and writing a review for it (which will publish in a few days).
I am getting the most enchanting cocoa notes as well as a nice, caramel-y sweetness and a note of bitter that cuts through the sweetness to prevent it from being too cloying. A very nice tea. This could make a very nice substitution for Dawn!
