Not a bad tea, but the combination of the astringency of the tea and the bergamot makes for a somewhat bitter drink with a very dry mouthfeel. Mixed with a mellower green tea it is quite nice.

The chocolate and orange flavouring was not bad, but overpowering, and the scent was difficult to remove from my infuser afterwards. The pu-erh seemed to have no flavour at all. I plan to give this another chance at some point, but for now I’m quite glad it was in a free sampler.

While the peach flavour was very nice, the tea itself was a little weak, especially for an oolong. I found this tea to be underwhelming hot, but it’s delicious iced, especially mixed with a little peach nectar.
