I really wanted an oolong after coming home from work today. It was quiet all night and I got a lot of reading for school done (we have 30 books to read in one semester, so I’m trying to pre-read each of them before school starts) – I finished one play, and almost finished another! Aaaand then I have another three I’m in the process of reading, and a whole list to start after that. Oh well. At least my professor has good taste!
I wanted something creamy and smooth and buttery, but unfortunately my oolong stash is really low right now. Digging through samples, I came across this one. It’s labelled as oolong, but it’s honestly more peach and fruit than tea. It might be because the fruit is sticky and coats the tea, but I can hardly find any leaves in the mix!
It has a very light flavor. The smell is kind of buttery and a little bit fruity. The liquor, however, is beautiful. It’s a light pinky-orange, like a peach that’s fuzzy and just ripe enough. It doesn’t taste so much like peach as it does kind of like nectarine or tangerine or orange. I like it more than I expected to, though! It’s not want I wanted… but after drinking it, I think it was what I needed.
