From DAVIDsTEA

David’s friend Emily drank a special orchid oolong years ago, and she never forgot the sublime taste. It lingered in her mind. She searched for it – but nothing lived up to the memory. Then David joined her quest. The orchid oolong he found is grown in the hilltops of Nantou, in Taiwan, and it has the natural lilac flavour that Emily had been dreaming of. Try it. It’s unforgettable.

Delicious! I can really taste the flowers. A remarkable flavour in a tea. This tea changed what I think about oolong.

Also good to know. I love Ti Kuan Yin and worry that oolongs are so delicate that added flavours might crush them. Thanks again for your notes.

It is really hard to buy a bad oolong from DavidsTea, and this is no exception. Sweet, creamy, smooth with a hint of floral flavor.

Overall I like it, but I don’t like it enough to go for a refill when I run out. I enjoyed trying this once (25g bag), but it isn’t a tea that I want in my permanent stash.

Had another cup, I’m upping the rating. For an oolong, this one is really decent.

I really like this tea. It smells sweet, fragrant and flowery, and the liquor is a beautiful, vibrant pale green. Orchid Oolong tastes a little how an orchid smells—fresh, sweet, floral—but with a full body that somewhat grounds the light, fluttery taste. It goes down smoothly and always makes me want another cup, which is great because it’s an oolong that does a super second infusion…

The second Infusion (3 minutes, 85 C) brings a slighter darker, more brown-green liquor. The body has not thinned much, but the tea itself tastes even more floral than before. Mmmm.
