From Dr. Tea's Tea Garden

Obama’s positivity and energy inspired this delicious Oolong blend. Oolong tea coated in American ginseng mixed with currants, pineapple, rosehips, hibiscus and organic Rooibos. A delicious fruit blend with a ginseng Zest!

I bought this tea to get me up to 25 dollars to get a free box of tea since I was re-ordering my Pu-Ehr :) I was surprised. A nice Oolong tea. I could pick out the Oolong flavor…Ti Kuan Yin maybe? The combination of the flavors actually tastes a little peachy to me. I think it’s quite tasty.

Cofftea

Pu Erh probably would have been a better base for this lol.

KeenTeaThyme

I don’t get it…is it just ‘cuz he’s the president or does he have an interest in tea? Hmm… ;)

Batrachoid

It’s like the statue of Liberty yixing, I think. If one can slap a recognizable symbol on something to sell a product, someone will. To knowledge Obama is a coffee and cigarette man, correct? Tsk tsk. XD

Cofftea

@KeenTeaThyme, because then the same words would describe the tea as his political practices.

@Batrachoid, What’s wrong with coffee and why are you judging him for that? I’ve heard he’s quit smoking twice- yet another way he’s dishonest. Oh well. As for tea. I’m guessing that because of his ethnicity he’s probably drank red and/or green bush before. Maybe even African chai.

Batrachoid

I meant the cigarettes. I used to have a deathly allergy to them. I like coffee sometines too. Kenya AAA is one of my favorite kinds, actually XD
I hadn’t thought of that but when you think about he did live in the region of Africa that grows rooibos…He probaly at least know about loose leaf brewing at least.

Thanks DJ Booth for sharing this one with me! I’m sitting here on this particularly gloomy day trying to get a whole slew of homework done! (when am I not doing homework?) I’m trying to relax a bit and have a mid-day snack of this and pumpkin spice trail mix from Target; that stuff is magical (woot for clearance food! LOL) I have to say that I think I should have had this when it was warmer.
From the dry leaf I was expecting this to be a bit more like the 4 Red Fruits from Kusmi. Although that pit fruit flavor is there on the end of the sip there is something a bit more distracting on the start. It’s very fruity without being overtly sweet or tart; a welcome change to the Teavana blends I’ve been downing.
I think that the only downside to this is I don’t really “get” the rooibos in this blend. It seems like the oolong leaves are nice and big; flavorful to boot. I say ditch the rooibos!

The DJBooth

Yeah I couldn’t find rooibos in this either.

Ok, I’m a sucker for novelty. Not only the weird, but teas named for people, places, events, etc so when I saw this I knew I had to try it.

1tsp/6oz water just below boiling.

This is such a pretty tea! The liquor is a gorgeous pinky red color and the aroma is definitely fruity. The flavor, unsuprisingly, is mainly of currant w/ a hint of hibiscus. Unfortunately I can’t really taste the pineapple or the oolong base. On the other hand, I can’t taste the rooibos either which makes me very happy! My final opinion of this tea will be based on how it morphs over time.

2nd infusion, 4 min. Still fruity, but more of the oolong is coming thru. Much more balanced.
