From DAVIDsTEA

A citrus burst

This blend of high-grown oolong is truly rejuvenating. It’s scented with lemon myrtle, jasmine and natural citrus essences, and the result is light, fresh and uplifting. Hot, it’s soothing and citrusy. Iced, it’s an unbelievable thirst quencher. And infused into vodka, it makes the world’s best martinis. (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Oolong tea, jasmine flowers, lemon myrtle, natural orange flavouring*.

This sample came to me courtesy of taite. The dry leaf aroma is invigorating!! Like fresh squeezed OJ. The jasmine flowers intrigued me. I have never had a tea with the actual flowers in it. The liquor is a pale yellow with a faint citrus aroma. I would compare the aroma to warm Orange Crush or Squirt. Initially the jasmine stands out. As it is cooling down though I’m tasting some nice citrus notes. I can see though how this tea might throw some people off. I’m thinking rather than the jasmine some vanilla would be killer in this. Almost like drinking a creamcicle. The second half of the pot has darkened a little bit. I have noticed this with greens lately too. Pale at first then a little more yellow. Theres a little more citrus coming out too. Almost like absolute citron, which may have been the goal in creating this tea. Or the flavor could be comparable to the scent of hand sanitizer. Either way I can tell this is one of those teas you like or you don’t. It’s pretty good but I’m not sure if I would buy a whole package of it. I am liking the chance some DAVIDs selections to my palette.

I think I’m addicted to lemon myrtle now. I want to drink it in everything.

I first tried the Citron Oolong ages ago, probably in one of the first rounds of tea-buying we did, but I didn’t actually pick up any until this past weekend, when the Legendary Collection packs were on sale. I have no idea why I waited so long because it’s frickin delicious. Sweet and fresh and lemony, but a smooth and clean oolong underneath. Just have to be careful about oversteeping this one because it can get bitter a lot faster than a straight oolong.

the lady that sold this to me said it can’t be resteeped! but I tried and it seemed ok… how about you?

De

It was a little sharp, but not overly so. I think it was fine.

Cattibrie

Indigobloom did you buy it in Ottawa because I was told the same thing. I have resteeped it fine.

Indigobloom

Nope, in Toronto. It’s a mystery!

BLEH BLEH BLEH! This was gross and left the worst after taste in my mouth… Hated it. This was served and recommended to me by the person working at David ‘s tea and I mean it sounds intriguing everything about it. They said it was a perfect iced tea, so I went ahead and trusted their advice. Definitely not perfect. The taste of bitter jasmine and tart lemon ( but like not a zesty lemon, just a pungent grossness ) over rode the oolong to the point that it didn’t even taste like tea any more. Honestly, I love davids tea and the usually give great advice, but I strongly dislike this tea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Iced

Consider the “like” a virtual “hug” Sorry for the epic BLEH :(

I completely agree. This was just one putrid tea. One of the worst I’ve had from them.

i’m really into oolongs this week. mostly inspired by everyone’s coconut oolong love explosion.

what other Davids Tea oolongs are you favorites? i think i might place an order of just oolongs?
i have vanilla orchid, quangzhou milk, and this citron already.

i like having my citrusy teas in the morning. so this one is perfect perfect perfect.
in my green timolino walking across the bridge on my way to work. it’s windy here but the sun is out.

MissLena

The vanilla orchid and quangzhou are my favorites lol and you already have those haha, their tie Kwan yin is really good too, and i don’t t mind the ginseng oolong, although it’s not my favorite

Courtney

My favourite is actually the Tung Ting Oolong, and of course now the Coconut Oolong haha. High Mountain Oolong is amazingly delicious but also very expensive.

4.5 tsp for 750mL water @ 90C, steeped 4 minutes in a Breville One Touch with the basket cycle on.

I wasn’t crazy about this blend. Tonight I made it as much to scent my study with lemon and jasmine as to drink it. I’ve eaten a lot of sweet and heavy food over the past few days, so lemony-oolong seemed the way to go.

I like this better than the last time I tried it. Maybe making in by the pot, versus by the cup, helps. I might even use cooler water next time, maybe 82 instead of 90, because the citrus in this is slightly bitter. The jasmine is very difficult to pick up — no taste or scent of jasmine at all. I still don’t think this is a brilliant blend, but the oolong base is light. Much of the bag is filled with some sort of blossom; I’m not sure how much actual oolong is here.

All I want is a citrus tea that’s ice-able…

So, yesterday I went into DAVIDsTEA with a list, since without one I get overwhelmed very quickly but the sheer number of teas I have not tried. I wanted (more) Jolly Jellybean, Amaretto, and some La La Lemon (to be iced). The sales-girl helping me recommended this tea instead of La La Lemon, since apparently that tea tends to get pretty bitter.

Now, the last time I tried this tea was the summer of last year and my opinion wasn’t very high: “…not really my thing. I think it might be the oolong? Or maybe the harsh lemon? Either way, it wasn’t smooth enough to really grab me.” BUT I’d only tried it in-store, so maybe brewing it at home would make a difference.

I cold-brewed it in my fridge: 1L of previously boiled (mine was lukewarm) water + 5g Citron Oolong + place pitcher in fridge overnight. The end product was… alright. A bit too floral for my taste, so I added extra lime + agave.

Any recommendations on a nice, citrus-y ice-able tea? Or should I just stick with Red Rose suntea + lemon?

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Try DT’s Detox! I do LOVE it which means I’m completely biased, but I find that iced, it has a really nice earthy-lemongrassy taste. You’ll probably need to add some lemon to play up the citrus. My favourite part is the double whammy: you get the hydration from the rooibos, and the caffeine from the green tea. I ALWAYS have some in the fridge cold brewing. As an alternative, I’ve heard that Countess of Seville is really good, though I’ve yet to try it myself.

AliPants

Oh and as for La La Lemon: She’s right – I’ve tried MANY different ways of brewing it, and it always turns out bitter. Oh and Lemon Myrtle is good, too, if you can catch it before it bitters.

Uniquity

La la lemon is always bitter. : (

Faith

Why, La La Lemon, why? Hmmm Alipants I never thought of Detox iced, maybe I’ll have to try it…

Received this as a sample when I ordered some new tins online (yes they look cool, but they are a bit too big I think). Usually I go to my local store to buy from Davids, but I hate going to the mall in December.

This was one of those teas I’ve sniffed more than a few times in the store, but I never purchased any because the strong citrus smell was off putting. I enjoy citrus flavoured stuff but I have my limits.

Anyway, onto brewing and drinking this stuff. The oolong is present but the citrus really overpowers it. I’d enjoy this more if the citrus didn’t shout so loudly at my senses.

Disappointed but not surprised. I can see why people like this, but I am not a fan.

Citrus Tea Day!

And wow!

Citron Oolong steeped, poured over lots of ice + a little agave syrup + lemons slices (NEVER ENDING LEMON SLICES! I have a lemon tree in the backyard) = Very yummy!

The amber agave syrup really compliments the floralness of this tea. The lemon in this is just right with no tart. I think my taste buds are returning finally!

I should make this Citron Oolong iced more often. I didn’t think it would be this tasty! I encourage peeps who haven’t tried this one iced to do so!

You have a lemon tree in your backyard? I am so many shades of jealous right now, you have no idea!

Awkward Soul / Oolong Owl

Hehe! I have a lemon, pomegranate and dragon fruit tree. Err.. if dragonfruit grows on trees, it looks like this catcus tangle thing. I had an avocado tree but my husband killed it!

Kittenna

Yeah, dragonfruit’s a cactus. I grew one from seed but think I killed it rather quickly. Sometimes I wish I lived in a warmer climate just so I could have tons of fun with fruit trees and the like!

Sipdown!
I think this tea is even better cold than hot. It’s refreshing and the jasmine isn’t overpowering or too floral.
