Finally! A grape tea that tastes like grape!
Seriously, that could be the whole note.
Anyway, this is an amazing tea and I have yet to be disappointed with Naivetea! I can’t wait for the next one. The taste is soft concord grapes with a hint of natural sweetness on top of a nice oolong base.
I’m just going to say it. This is the best oolong I have ever experienced. The lychee and the oolong blend together so perfectly, as if by magic. The aroma is intense and all encompassing. It entities anyone near to it. The flavour dances across all facets of your taste buds delicately, bringing the most lovely sensations. Where I am, it is a cloudy grey & very wet day here, but this tea takes me away to spring time. To a place of fresh green growth, warm sunshine, & enjoying juicy lychees in the light breeze. It is an experience, not just a tea. I am so pleased to be journeying afar with it this morning. :)
Thank you immensely for sharing such an incredible tea with me kieblera5
Holy lychee, Batman!
Wow, so this tea is super strong and delicious. The instructions say to use 1tbsp per 6oz, which seemed ridiculous, but I did it anyway just so I could have the “recommended” brew. I steeped for 50 seconds/40/50 and have the leaves saved to brew again tonight.
I’m not even sure that I could distinguish that this is an oolong because the flavors of the lychee and the natural tea flavor blend together so perfectly. It’s a great dessert oolong :)
I purchased two of Naivetea’s sample boxes last week and they finally arrived yesterday!! I can’t believe they took just over a week from order to arrival and it was only shipping from 250 miles away but the wait was certainly worth it!
Opening the packet up, Im immediately hit with the sweet and slightly acidic smell of fresh passionfruit, if I closed my eyes I would think someone was holding a fresh cut passionfruit in front of my face!! Such a heady, indulgent, succulent scent!!
I decided to steep in my little oolong yixing pot following Naivetea’s steeping directions… First steep at 50 seconds and the scent is not as prominent as the dry leaf, the flavor is muted but there is definitely some light passionfruit notes in each sip. Second steep at 40 second, the passionfruit flavor is a little more prominent, more juicy with a distinct buttery end note, the liquor has changed to a slightly more vibrant but beautiful yellow color. Third steeping at 50 seconds, and the scent is infinitely more floral and there is still a slight passionfruit flavor which is balanced with a vegetal flavor. Fourth and final steeping because I’m ready for something else, not because this tea has given up all its flavor… this time I steeped for 2 minutes (as Naivetea recommends for the 7th steeping) there is still a distinct passionfruit scent and the flavor is still present but fading a little… All in all this tea is pretty delicious, I expected a slightly more prominent passionfruit flavor due to the powerful scent of the dry leaves but I’m in no way disappointed with what the tea delivered and will absolutely purchase more when this sample is done.
A good tea for relaxing, and treating others while in the company of family and friends.
This is a sweet tea that bodes well with a great conversation. “Sometimes the talk you ever will have is sitting next to someone in complete silence while drinking tea and walking away as if it were the best conversation you have ever had” Darrin Peppers Wong
