The licorice root very nicely offsets the tartness of the hibiscus. This tea really tastes like it contains alcohol. Nice mix of flavours- seems to have quite an authentic taste. Not something that I personally enjoy- a bit too sickly sweet for me.

Boiling 6 min, 30 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

cold brew + a little sweetener = not too bad

The aroma of the brewed tea is very nice- caramel sweetness with a bit of umami. Slightly brisk with a dull bitterness. I would like to try to brew this one for less time. I can taste the flavour profile of the aroma in the background.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

The vanilla flavour is quite strong- reminds me of the vanilla flavouring in yogurt. The vanilla overpowers the oolong, especially in the aftertaste. The oolong seems to have been over-infused or infused at too hot a temperature. I may want to try brewing this again for less time or at a lower temperature.

Does not have the thick mouth-feel that I have usually associated with my favourite pu’erhs. Thin slightly metallic on the sip. Damp woodsy-like tones on the immediate aftertaste
