Mmm, tea plus alcohol, we meet again.

This smells heavenly. Fruity, lemony, sort of like a good Earl grey, but very sweet. I know it’s made with oolong, but I can’t tell by the scent. I’m taking it as a shot, since that seems like the best way to judge the taste.

Oh. Wow. This tastes like Earl grey, too, and it’s wonderful. However, it doesn’t taste anything like oolong. I kinda get the feeling that they don’t expect people to know the difference, as with lots of mainstream pseudo-tea products. But I’m going to have to snag a bottle in case they discontinue it. It burns just enough, and it’s not as sweet as I was expecting. It’s clean, it’s zesty, and it gets you drunk. This is going to inspire some interesting mixed drinks.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
