So this is another of the samples I got from bulk barn. and yes, this is looseleaf this time!
Funny, the “tea” part tastes almost just like that of the white apricot tea I had last night. There is a touch of that same watery flavour I mentioned in the white tea post as well, though not nearly as strong. I wonder if it’s the same vendor, and if there are any common ingredients. Hmmm.
Anyhow, when it was still hot, I tasted something spicy in there, but now that it’s cooled I can’t find it anymore, sorry I can’t elaborate more on that!
And the orange… it really comes through! I added a dash of sugar to help it along, which really brought it out some more. There is a moment when swallowing that makes me think I could actually be eating an orange slice, and it lingers long after the sip to. This is very refreshing! I would love to try it iced one day.
I added some milk and tried a touch of it separately in a teacup(I do this with most new teas), very nice as well! Bravo Orange Oolong, bravo :)
Oh and the aroma… that alone makes the tea worthwhile. I LOVE the smell of tangerine.
Yes, I think I will replace this one when I finish the sample! I was quite unsure at first but the cup really grew on me. I just wish I had time for a second steep before heading out for the afternoon…
