drank Dragon Eye Oolong by Revolution Tea
122 tasting notes

I drank this last night at PF Chang’s. Normally I don’t bother to log the teas I drink in restaurants, but this oolong was so good that it deserved an honorable mention. I didn’t think to ask for the brand while at the restaurant, but thanks to the magic of Google I was able to track it down.

Revolution Tea uses pyramid-shaped bags for their teas, and the Dragon Eye Oolong is packed full of fruity goodness. I was really impressed with it; normally you can tell right away if a tea is bagged or loose just based on the strength of the flavor, but I had to open up the teapot and confirm visually because it tasted so good.

It was a balanced tea that was quite peachy, with a bit of tartness that I attribute to the apricot. Compared to many peach teas I’ve had, which tend to be super-sweet with an aftertaste of orange rind (several American brands) or cloying, Dragon Eye Oolong had a more adult flavor. More subdued. More smoky?

Anyway, quite good. I plan to buy this one soon.

I adore this tea. It’s one of the few bagged teas that I really, really like. Agreed with you on the taste.

I was so pleasantly surprised! I expected this tea to be absolutely nothing special when I ordered it.

I’ve had that brand twice, once at a hotel breakfast and once at a cafe for brunch. Both times I was really pleased with it. And I love the little boxes they come in, that’s so sweet.
