A hockey friend and I got started on Twitter last week about tea. Our conversation was at least several hours long and awesome and eventually turned to mead, but clearly there was a need to swap some teas in the process. Since I don’t care much for what I picked out when I ordered from Adagio, I had her send me her favorites from them, starting with this.
I love it. The peach oolong is my favorite of the bunch I have, so I’m glad to find I like this flavor too. It smells slightly sweet, and a bit like cereal. The taste is almost exactly like a vanilla-almond cookie that’s been infused with oolong. The floral taste of the tea sounds like it’d be weird with a nutty flavor, but it somehow works for me.
And now, in talking about this tea on Twitter, I have perhaps helped a friend find a replacement for a long gone vanilla almond tea, this tea is bringing everyone together via social media!
