I can’t think of much to say about this one. It’s pleasant, but I feel like it tastes like all of DT’s other mint teas and all their other lemony teas. Nothing remarkable, but it is clearing my head. The Oolong is small, tight balls of leaf and it seems to be about half-and-half ratio of tea to lemongrass/peppermint. It’s a good balance between green Oolong flavour and lemon with nice but not overpowering mintiness. Everything is boring me lately! What’s with that? None of the winter teas are really exciting me (though I still bought the whole collection) and I’m underwhelmed by most of the flavoured teas I’ve tried lately. I like this but I want to love something!
Enter the dragon
Oolong means “black dragon” in Chinese. There are many stories behind the name, but we like to believe it’s because steeped oolong tea unfurls just like little dragons in your cup. When you blend oolong with the bright, fresh flavours of lemon and mint, it’s a different creature altogether. Yellow dragons symbolize nobility and generosity of spirit – it’s no wonder this delicious, uniquely refreshing tea makes us smile.
Ingredients : Oolong tea, lemongrass, peppermint, lemon oil.
