I am trying this tea for the first time this morning, and so far I am quite enjoying it. It is my first oolong, and it was absolutely the vanilla that pulled me in. I am a sucker for vanilla.
The dry smell packs a lot of punch in the vanilla department, almost too much? I found it had less intensity while steeping, which I think is a good thing.
It tastes very much like vanilla, and I can’t say that I am getting any hints of orange like they suggest. It is very very smooth, which I appreciate, and I get the most vanilla flavour immediately after swallowing. As this is my first oolong, I can’t really speak to that flavour right now. I am looking forward to picking up an unflavoured one.
This is a tea that I think I will definitely purchase again, but I probably won’t be really anxious about making sure I never run out.
