This is the first oolong from Wild Orchid that I have tried. The dry leaves smell faintly of powdered orange drink. After steeping, however, the tea has a strong orange blossom (?) aroma and tastes very flowery. It is impossible to detect any subtle complexities in the oolong as the floral aroma and flavor are too overwhelming. The aroma/flavor are a bit more subdued in the second infusion, but I still can’t quite hack my way through the perfume. I have tried a few flavored oolongs, and I’m not adverse to flower-scented teas, but the florals in this tea are way too overpowering to enjoy the cup.
Again part of the sampler from Wild Orchid Teas—aroma of dry leaves was definitely of strawberries. Labeled as “naturally flavored” but no strawberries (dried or otherwise) are to be found in the blend. Prepared as recommended. Tea was pleasant at the outset with a sweet, fruity flavor. However, a strange, strong metallic flavor/aftertaste developed as the tea cooled. Will not be repeating the experience.
Black tea blend with flower petals, cloves, cinnamon, fruit pieces (no description of additions to tea given.) Strong cinnamon aroma with fruity notes. Some cinnamon flavor in the flavor of the tea, but not much else. Will keep looking for my favorite “seasonal” tea.
