8 Tasting Notes
This tea has a refreshing citrus smell when you open the tin – like that mist of fragrance as you peel a fresh tangerine. When steeped for three minutes, I found this tea to have a delicate flavor, with no acidity. The citrus flavor is not as pronounced as the fragrance, but still an enjoyable cup of tea.
I also discovered this tea at PF Changs restaurant. Oolong is a newer taste experience for me. I found that I really liked this particular tea. The larger pyramid bags (makes a whole pot) were quite convenient. The flavor has a hint of smokiness without acidity and a little sweetness. Very pleasant.
This is one of my everyday teas. I like to start the day with a pot of robust black tea such as London Cuppa, Yorkshire Gold, or PG Tips. The trick with the PG Tips is a shorter brewing time – I usually give it three minutes – and add milk. To me it’s brisk, yet smooth. I’ll be drinking a lot of this tea, since hubby gave me a case for Christmas.
