My first oolong – not my first taste of oolong, but rather the first I’ve purchased for myself and steeped at home.
Dry it smells almost like a rich peach liqueur, or caramelized peaches. Steeped it is DELICOUS both hot and cold (and lukewarm, when you make it and leave the cup somewhere…) – the taste of peaches and almonds are definitely bright and present, along with a warmer toasty flavour that I’m assuming comes from the tea itself. 2nd steep just as tasty and satisfying!
Note – Jun 8: I still like the taste of this tea, but am now finding the liquorish, almost fermented smell of the peach to be a bit off-putting. I find I now go to Happy Kombucha when I want a fruity oolong!
