I’ve been overly obsessed with Medjool Dates and Almond Butter Lately
So when I saw this flavored Oolong – I KNEW I had to try it!
Prior to infusing this smelled like sugary dates underneath a charcoal type oolong. Once infused it smelled more like a toasted/roasted oolong with a bit of sugar dates aroma.
Once I started sipping I could taste a strong toasted/roasted/charcoal type oolong base with a bit of floral and nutty hints as well as a slight rich yet sugary dates type taste. As it cools a bit more I can start tasting the dates a bit more but they are subtle.
I do really like this. I was hoping for more date-flavor but it’s still quite good, regardless. Perhaps I should just make sure there are more Date Chunks in my next cuppa!
PS: Also as it cools a bit – I’m starting to taste some cocoa flavors, too! Now THAT’S interesting!
