drank Creamy Nut Oolong by Teaopia
28 tasting notes

So I’m not sure why, but I’ve been gravitating towards oolongs for my morning tea lately. Today is no exception, but its mostly because I am obsessed with my newest addition. I almost never make it to Teaopia, because its out of my way, but I was in the area and could not resist a tea named the same why I describe my own preferences. Seriously, I always describe my tea preferences as “I prefer creamy, nutty teas.” So obviously this was a must try.

Overall, I love the flavour, and get a hint of the buttery, vegetal oolong underneath a creamy flavour. I find that the caramel dominates this blend, at least on the first steeping. I haven’t yet tried a second steeping but I hear good things.

The description indicates apple pieces, but I get NO hint of apple in the brewed tea. That said, I still enjoy the cup. Its very smooth, and and gives the feeling of sweetness without being sickly sweet.
