DRY – this looks like a woodsier Oolong mix. The aroma is mostly oolong and mango. I can tell there is a little something else fruity-wise too but it’s not really identifiable as berries or passionfruit per say.
Once infused…the liquor is pretty dark for an oolong…much like a medium-brown colored black tea. It smells slightly fruity and woodsy…but oh-so-slight!
The taste is DARN GOOD. It’s a smoother oolong taste with hints of sweeter-wood but the fruit notes pair up beside the oolong very well. All of the fruit ingredients mesh well with each other and no one ingredient really barges in front of the others.
The rose hides out in the background and if I didn’t take the time to really notice it I probably would miss it.
There is just something about this that says “I’m YOUR tea…treat me well…and I will treat YOU well.” And you know what…it looks like we are on the same page!
New Friends are FUN!!!
