96
drank White Peach Oolong by Naivetea
21 tasting notes

I was told by Lawrence of Naivetea that the oolong tea that they use in their infused oolongs is Golden Lily aka Milk Tea or Jin Xuan. High quality Golden Lily grown at high elevations tastes great by itself so I had high expectations for this tea.

I wasn’t disappointed! The flavor is really amazing. I didn’t use any honey today so I could experience the natural sweetness of the tea. The white peach flavor is reminiscent of these Chinese hard candies that I would enjoy as a child.

I think the best thing about this tea is that the peach notes do not overwhelm the creamy flavor of the oolong tea. I will be purchasing this again and I highly recommend it to others!

Ahh still very delicious, each steep tastes different. It’s buttery and smooth…I think lightly oxidized flavored oolongs like this one are now my favorite kind of tea. I can’t wait to try the rest of the flavors in my sampler!

Bio

I’ve been a loose tea drinker since 2006 and I really started getting into tea during my college years. My favorite types are oolong, scented green, white, peppermint, and rooibos.

My husband and I drink it on a daily basis and we love our trusty Zojirushi water dispenser. Some of the tea we drink hot, and the rest we chill.

I enjoy tea with honey or german rock sugar. I also try to seek out unique honey for my tea. My favorite so far is unprocessed Hawaiian white gold honey.

If I’ve rated a tea over 90, it’s something I will definitely be drinking again in the future.

Lately I’ve been enjoying a lot of authentic Chinese tea that was gifted to me from my mother after her last trip to China. Unfortunately I won’t be able to write notes for those teas on Steepster.
