This was one of the first Oolongs I’ve had in a while. I went up the coast this weekend for four days to San Luis Obispo. I was walking by the shops with friends and family, and I noticed the Peet’s Coffee & Tea shop in a corner. I just had to go in.
I wanted an Oolong to compensate for the long time I’ve gone without. I was enjoying the view outside, while letting the tea brew, and I couldn’t help but notice a slightly-sweet, grassy smell of the tea. The color was a dark green, reminiscent of a lake. This tea already seemed like more of a green tea than an Oolong. The flavor was lite, but not grassy, which was very different than the scent. I did notice that the tea was slightly sweet.
I carried it around with me to some of the shops, wishing I had more once I ran out. I made sure to buy a couple of other teas at the shop. I can’t wait to try them. This tea did not impress me too much, though I did enjoy it. More reviews later.
