drank Raspberry Oolong by A C Perch's
325 tasting notes

I thought I had already tried this! So curious about it, thought I had tried it and find the very generous sample Angrboda gave me unopened. I do have too many teas, it is now confirmed.

I am not too crazy about oolong normally. I do love raspberries though, and this red fruit oolong from a local tea seller works for me in a good way. In all good omens.

The tea did not disappoint – it smells incredibly strongly of raspberry, in a way that seemed a little bit artificially flavoured (but I am paranoid). But when infusing the taste is pure natural raspberry, a little bit tart which is just right for things with a raspberry taste. Lovely! Though I think I should have been more generous with the dosage or skimpier with the ammount of water – and this will definetely get multiple steeps just to see how it goes.

Funny, I could have sworn I had seen you post about it too! Odd. Anyway, I’m sure you can see why this is my favourite one to share. :) I’m glad you enjoyed it.

I was pretty sure I had opened it and tried it, but found the sample unopened. Oh well, either I confused it with the cranberry-vanilla black tea you sent me or with the redfruitsooolong I had! But I can not find any previous reviews, so yeah weird, particularly if there are two of us thinking that!

(still got to try the tanzania, though I did open it, it smells pretty different from the mozambique, a bit more intense, muskier even)

Angrboda

Perhaps you just told me about it by email? But yeah, it’s possible I got them mixed up as well. :)

It must have been my mail! or a mutual hallucination :)

It is lovely, and I am not usually a fan of oolongs! thanks for sending such a generous sample, i will have fun experimenting with brewing it.

Profile

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
