When I first got this tea, I did not like it. Too tart. I waited several months and tried it again and loved it this time. I am on my second tin of this tea. I do like to add a teaspoon of cinnamon fire (also from Dr. Tea’s) to balance it out. The best part is that you get 4 steeps with this tea.
12/6/09 On my second infusion, it is as good as the first. Smooth finish. Pairs perfect with chocolate. The tartness of the plums blends nicely with this amber oolong. I do have to brew this in my 16 oz. glass teapot as the oolong leaves need more room to unfurl:) I will be able to get four infusions from this pot. This tea is pricey, but with the four infusions it is a nice indulgence.
12/30/09 nice, smooth oolong tea; 1/24/10 love this tea:)
The succulent essence of sour plum is imparted to a blend of wild harvested schizandra berries and select oolong tea leaves. The pink infusion is pleasantly tart, naturally fruity and aromatic.
