4923 Tasting Notes
Sooooo as some of you may know, I am NOT a fan of oolongs. Pekko Teas sent me this as their sample so I am nonethless trying it and will likely pop it into the travelling tea box so that others can enjoy the GENEROUS sample they provided. In that way I’ll be able to help share the wealth and give them back a little something for sending the tea my way.
I am also not rating this tea because of the fact that I generally dislike oolongs and i don’t want that reflected on Pekko teas. The leaves of this oolon are super tightly coiled. As for the taste? It’s an oolong :) There’s not an overwhelming floral taste from this, so that’s good. It’s light and those who enjoy oolongs would probably appreciate this tea. I hope that whomever gets this after me enjoys it!
I picked this up on my trip to san francisco. I’m still in search of my perfect chai. I don’t think I’ve ever seen orange peel in any of the chai’s that i’ve tried before, so I thought it might be an interesting twist. The dry scent of this is cloves and an understone of citrus. Once brewed however, this has a really nice taste. The orange brings out the spices nicely without turning this into a “fruity” tea. As usual, I’m drinking this straight. Not a bad Chai…I think I still prefer Verdant’s chai but this is a good blend.
So as I suspected, this is a brilliant cold brewed tea! Where it’s a nice tangy hot tea, it’s a fantastic cold tea! Tethered a nice berry taste, there’s a bit of tang and the colour is wonderful :) I don’t drink a lot of cold tea in winter but this is likely something to go on my shopping list for summer! Thanks azzrian
Let me just start by saying that If there’s anyone out there who bought this and doesn’t love it/want it – you just send it my way!
This tea has totally grown on me and now I’m dreading the thought that it will be gone soon. I would love to see this as a permanent tea with frank, though I suspect that is a long shot. Ah well, at least I can enjoy it while i have it.
