I’m trying to use up my sample of this…it’s amazing how bottomless a sample can be when you don’t like the tea much!
All I can say is, the flavor improves a little, on the second steeping. The peach mellows out and becomes less fake candy-ness and more like peach pie filling. The toastiness of the oolong becomes more pronounced. But something is still “off” about this.
lowering the score by 10 points!
I think is one of those teas that tries to enhance a natural oolong characteristic (like peachiness) with an artificial flavoring. Kind of like milky oolongs with milk flavoring. While I don’t mind flavored teas at all (in fact I love them!), this one just isn’t done right. So sad.
I may have to toss you, poor tea sample! I just can’t endure another cup!
(Nor can I impose your inferiority on others!)
