drank Yuzu Oolong by Naivetea
2396 tasting notes

Another flavored oolong from my Naivetea sampler.

I did not know exactly what a yuzu was (aside from it being a type of fruit). Upon smelling it I was expecting something very tart like a pink grapefruit tea. There is a citrus note here, however I am finding it exceedingly subtle. I believe the base of this tea is an ali shan.

There is a lingering sweetness here in the finish that is difficult to describe, Sweet and vegetal, perhaps I am reminded of corn.

Overall I do not think I like this quite as well as Naivetea’s passionfruit oolong but I still like it quite a lot. The yuzu flavor is very delicate and allows the base notes of the oolong to come through. Does not taste artificial or cloying at all. Another job very well done by Naivetea. Check this out if you are looking for a gentle flavored oolong.

Naivetea’s flavored oolongs (and heck, their unflavored ones!) are high on my list of things I want to try. They sound so good!

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
