This was a very interesting oolong. It smells like a floral, vanilla green tea when dry. (Vanilla ?!?) I read that there was a coconut flavor to it as well, but I didn’t really pick up too much on that, at least not in the dry scent.

195/3 min. Now, I’m picking up on a bit more of the coconut, but now it smells like a perfumed coconut. Unfortunately, that’s also the taste that I’m finding as I drink it. It doesn’t taste like a scented tea, but more like a perfumed tea. It’s a strange combination of flavors and scents. Not terrible by any means, but I wasn’t expecting this coconut, or what comes out to be a morphed caramel flavor mixed with a floral perfume. The oolong is nice, though, and kind of grounds it as well.

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
