Amanda – You spoil me! Thank YOU!!!
This one, at first, didn’t have enough flavor for me. BUT…as I was typing my tasting notes – after it had just a few minutes to cool at room temp…I decided to delete my notes and start again!
While this is super hot – the Vanilla wasn’t all that loud. As it cools the vanilla seemed to come out and play a bit more. It’s still not overly flavored, tho.
The oolong itself is quite nice. A great Pouchong, indeed! In the aftertaste I can pick up a subtle hint of citrus which was a nice surprise.
After I gave this a 2nd chance – it turned out fairly satisfying. If you are looking for super intense vanilla – this really isn’t it, but it’s still tasty with the oolong base.
