drank Orange Blossom by Rishi Tea
24 tasting notes

The name of this tea is really a misnomer. I love orange blossom but alas this tea has no discernable orange blossom flavor nor are there orange flowers in the ingredients. It tastes mostly of lemongrass. There is a citrusy note in there and a hint of tangerine and that’s about it. Very similar to Rishi’s Chamomile Medley and Starbucks Tazo green tea. Not a bad tasting tea, but not as advertised.

Flavors: Citrusy, Lemongrass, Mint, Orange Zest

Bleh. This one was totally undrinkable. The taste and smell were very artificial. I’m glad this was a free sample because I wouldn’t want to waste my money on this awful tea.

drank Apricot Green by Adagio Teas
24 tasting notes

I’m always a little leery of fruity teas because the fruitiness tends to overwhelm. This one was no exception but it wasn’t bad either. This tea has a pleasant, candylike topical flavor which isn’t too fruity but clearly dominates. Since I like my flavored teas to have just a hint of flavor, I think this will taste best after cutting it with straight green tea.

Flavors: Apricot, Candy, Mango, Tropical

This delicately flavored tea has been steadily creeping to the top of my rotation. For a while I’ve been on a green/floral oolong kick after being turned off by some of the overroasted batches of other oolong varieties like Wuyi. This tea falls squarely in the middle of the oolong spectrum, combining the best characteristics of light roasts with its pronounced floral notes and sweetness along with the smooth, roasted flavor of a darker roast.

I usually do 3 infusions of this tea in a guywan. Roughly 3/4 tsp per 5 oz of water at steep times of 4, 6, and 7 minutes respectively. Steeping longer on subsequent infusions yields an even deeper flavor.

Flavors: Dried Fruit, Floral, Roasted
