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

drank Purple Pu-erh by Majesteas

The dry leaf smells incredible.

The brewed tea is leathery but sweet- reminiscent of chamomile-like sweetness. There’s a bit of the characteristic pu’er note but it is very well balanced with the overall flavour. The flavour is not at all bold. I would definitely try experimenting with different infusion times.

Good thick mouth-feel. I’m surprised by this considering how mild the flavour is.

drank Caramel Apple Oolong by 52teas

A bit thin-tasting. Very savoury apple-caramel flavour – closer to the end of the sip/aftertaste. I’m not detecting the full strong flavour of the oolong.

Thanks Kittenna for sharing!

1.5 tbsp

Cinnamon with a zingy sweetness. Green tea gives a thicker mouthfeel to the overall brew but still very thin-tasting (as an herbal) and flavours are faded.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 30 sec 5 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML
