This is an excellent Irish Breakfast blend. The Assam REALLY pops in this blend – malty and rich! It has a full-flavored taste, I really like this. It definitely has the gusto to get you going!
Did your chewing gum lose it’s flavor on the bed post over night?
Well, this tea seems to have…at least the pre-infusion-aroma has been lost over time. Oh well…
After infusing I can smell the plum a little. The color is a vibrant purple-reddish-orange.
This is still decent tasting but a little bit on the light side and I over doubled the amount of loose leaf to infuse. Still satisfying tho.
I can’t believe I am the only one to log this! This is a FAB Irish Breakfast! Bold, Flavorful, beyond your basic black tea! It has a notable semi-sweet finish. Something I usually don’t mention for an Irish Breakfast. This is nice and strong!
Another tea from Teaequalsbliss thank you very much. Now this I’s my second cup,first cup I oversteeped. Dry this smelled like berries and black tea. I steeped this a shorter time. And can smell the blueberry with abit of strawberry. This tastes like blueberries with abit of strawberry and some hibiscus and black tea. This I’s a good tea just Not something that will be a favorite.
I found an old tin of this I had stashed away at the back of my tea cabinet (for tea emergencies like today). What an amazing cup. Lemony, licorice-y, full-bodied, yet light enough to be a breakfast tea, and robust enough to be enjoyed iced as well. I need to find some more of this since Ocean of Tea has went AWOL.
2nd infusion…still good…5 minutes…same but tartier – and that’s NOT French folks! :)
What a nice aroma this has! Sweet Plum Oolong! Ooooo…LONG…
Sorry…I swear…I’ll stop…
sometime soon! LOL
Anyhow…I would agree with the other review as it resembling a WINE like taste. YUMMY. I infused for 3 minutes but might go (oooo) LONGer next time…just to compare strengths.
As is…this is nice and light and sweet and juicy and a hint of tart to make it a tasty flavored Oolong.
This is another MandyB Tea…thanks Mandy! I know you are a fan of Oolong so I really appreciate you parting with some of your stash!
Yup! Smells like Jam. Medium Reddish Brown in color. With all the flavors going on and the intense smell I was a little afraid BUT it’s fairly good…I’m really quite surprised all the ingredients ‘play nice’ and blend well. Because this surprises me so – I am going to rate fairly high…but I bet it would be better iced!
Another goodie from MandyB! Thanks girl!
Brewed up my last little bit of this from Ocean of Tea, and was not pleased. The resulting liquor was dank and sweaty like boiled sweatsocks. The taste was light and floral, but the smell completely overpowered it. Poured the rest down the drain. Blech.
Brewed up my last batch of this amazing tea. Ocean of Tea has stopped shipping for some bizarre reason, so I can’t re-order. It’s a light and refreshing cup with a faint licorice/anise undercurrent that’s just lovely.
I brewed a full pot of this once I received it, and I was blown away! This is a rich, wine-like tea. Nice red color, amazing aroma, and delicious plum flavor. I also picked up some nice raspberry flavors. And yes, it is EXCELLENT iced too! Amazingly good.
I wished Ocean of Tea was still shipping. This blend is too good to not order again.
I ended up with a random sample of shu from a friend. It has a nice earthy sense about it, without the taste of a barnyard.
Fruity like a lemon LifeSaver. A great pick-me-up on a cold day. Lemony and light.
