After the peach oolong from butiki, I was a little let down by this tea. It is good, but the grape did not flow as well with the oolong as the peach did.
“This was an obvious purchase. Grape is so good! And this works well with the oolong base. The grape flavoring reminds me of concord grapes and it makes for a refreshing iced tea. I wish I'd kept...” Read full tasting note

Our Grape Oolong has a wonderfully sweet aroma. This high altitude Taiwanese oolong is lightly floral and develops into a sweet natural grape flavor that lingers. Our smooth bodied oolong can be enjoyed with some brown crystal sugar for a desert-like treat or without anything added for a natural and refreshing flavor. This tea is good for multiple infusions.

Flavor: Wow, excellent. The base tea is a lovely oolong with floral flavors, which blend nicely with the grape flavor. The grape isn’t overwhelming at all, and lets the base tea shine through. I’m really happy with this one, and I think it’s very well done. I have been looking for a good grape tea, and I think I found it!
Ah, I love oolongs. Thanks to ashleyelizabeth for a sample of this! This one is quite similar in taste to the berry oolong of T2’s that I so love. Just enough for one Timolino but thanks to the oolongness I’ll get a couple of steeps out of it at least!
Dry this tea is smelling like fruit, but steeped it smells floral! It is a very light oolong with slightly floral flavors. As it cools, the floral flavor turns into grape with a strong grape scent. I sweetened the last bit of my cup and it intensifies the flavor but is still pretty subtle. This tea is interesting, but I’m not sure that it packs enough of a flavor punch for my taste. I’m still on the fence about oolongs. Glad to have gotten to try it! Thanks for the sample with my order Butiki!
It smells and tastes like the grape lollipops I use to get whenever I went to the pediatrician as a kid. The texture is buttery and smooth. The flavor leans more toward the vegetal side while hot, and the grape becomes increasingly “present” as it cools. It’s very drinkable, but maybe a little too sweet and candy-like for my personal preference. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re the type who loves sweets and gravitates toward grape flavors.
