drank Plum Oolong by Tea Lux
247 tasting notes

Dry, this tea smelled sickly sweet. The oolong was dark black and scattered throughout, but it seemed as though there were more raisin-like fruits called schizandra berries (??) scattered throughout.

195/2 min. Ugh. The aroma is not pleasant. I can’t think of a word to describe it and I know instantly that even if this were the most amazing cup of tea, it would be difficult to drink the entire cup. Unfortunately for the tea, it’s not the most amazing. It’s certainly not the worst, but coupled with this bizarre scent, I can’t finish it. It tastes like steeped raisins and the oolong is not strong enough to hold up to its bizarre berry tea mate.

I’ve noticed that about plum in my teas… it tastes artificial to me for some reason. I’m glad you had better luck with the Ben Shan!
This is a mate?

I meant mate, like a co-cupboard-inhabitant, not like maté. (I didn’t even notice that until just now. :) )

ahh, English is quirky like that! I’d hate to think what a mate(how do you get the accent), oolong blend would taste like
