So raspberry, so oolong! So amazing together.

I steeped using the same method I normally do for oolongs – more leaf and shorter infusions.
The first two were perfect. The third was a little short on the raspberry, and the fourth had no raspberry at all. However the oolong is so delicious in itself that they were wonderful cups too.

I’m now going to visit their web site to see how much their international shipping is. I have a feeling I’m going to be needing more of this. The second option, of course, is moving to Denmark.

Thank you Angrboda for sharing this divine tea.

Isn’t it just fab? :D It’s one of my favourites to share, because it always goes down so well :) I think they use the regular danish postal service fees for shipping, so unfortunately, if you think it turns out a bit steep, I don’t even think I could give you any advantage by purchasing for you and forwarding. :(

Wow, shipping from Denmark is astronomical! Why is that?

wow sounds amazing, sometimes oolong teas concentrate so much on the ‘extra’ that they forget about the quality of the oolong and once the extra is lost in the reinfuse the oolong doesn’t hold up. This sounds like a great tea – I’ve always wanted to try a berry oolong now you’re making so jealous! :)

Pity about the shipping… :/

Angrboda

Because the danish post service charge the price of a small jet just to post stuff within the country. They raised the price of postage of a standard priority A letter last year from 5,50 kr to 8 kr in one go… Where I work all departments have been told to make sure to send all mail as priority B mail, unless it really IS urgent. I believe the problem lies in more and more things taking place over the internet instead of via post and also, while they do not have an actual official monopoly on mail delivery, they also don’t have any competition to force them to keep prices down.

I’m sorry it remains out of your reach. I’d happily be middle-man for you, but I don’t think it would be any cheaper for you.

Winter Salo, I would offer to share a sample with you as it’s one of my Standards. Unfortunately I’m currently out of it and can’t get more for a little while as I’ve placed myself under a bit of a buying embargo. I need to empty 8 more tins and finish 18 more samples before I’m allowed to purchase…
But if you see me posting about it in the future and remind me, we can totally work something out. :)

Raspberry oolong sounds really good!

Winter Salo

wow thanks Angrboda that’s really nice of you. :) I totally understand a self imposed buying embargo I’ve tried to do it to myself this month… but I’m not sure I can make it I there’s a couple of teas I’m just itching to try. I guess November isn’t too far.

Angrboda

I tend to say I have to finish so and so many tins and so and so many samples before I’m allowed to buy. I find it motivates me to actually use up stuff before it gets too old and it’s easier for me than simply waiting for a specific date. I keep a little note of it on my tea shelves, making a mark every time I’ve emptied something. :)
