I am sad. This is my first first flavored oolong and it was only ok. I think the hibiscus ruined it for me. It seemed overpowering and flavor seemed more apple than pear. Though I must say, the fruit flavor was very natural.
The oolong base was woody and darker than I liked.
I’m glad to have sampled it but I’m not sure about future flavored oolongs.

I knooow! But the fruit flavors weren’t really up to par either. Not good tea makes me sad. :(

Their papaya oolong is better, this pear thing blows. ;-)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
