From Fusion Teas

Taiwanese oolong blended to perfection. With floral notes and hints of lemon and ginger it isn’t just pretty to look at. Instead of picking up that bouquet for your better half try surprising with this one of a kind blend.

Ingredients: Oolong, lemon grass, rose buds, rose petals with rose, lemon and ginger flavor.

Wow! I’m liking this!

The dry leaf is gorgeous. The tightly wound, deep green leaves (they appear to be a Tie Kuan Yin) are blended with tiny, beautiful, red, perfectly formed rosebuds. So beautiful … I almost didn’t want to brew it! But, even a tea as beautiful as this isn’t going to stop me from submerging it in hot water! It IS beautiful, yes, but, I want tea!

The flavor is really nice – very floral, as the rose is pretty evenly matched with the flavor of the Oolong. The lemon and the ginger are very subtle background notes … so much so that they are almost overwhelmed by the rose, but, I like that they are accent flavors. Kind of like a drop or two of lemon juice squeezed into the cup.

A really tasty, relaxing tea, I’m enjoying this very much.

As this tea cools, the lemon comes out a little more. It is still a pretty subtle note, but, the cool tea is much “zingier” than the hot tea.

Lemon, rose, ginger. I have to try this! Added to the ever-growing shopping list. =)

Thanks Liberteas

Clever Flavor Combo for this oolong! I like it very much! Different and in a good way. The rose and the lemon are a bit on the lighter side but appreciated the way they are…they are playing nice with each other.

Very nice flavor combo and offering for a flavored oolong! Nice!

This is a lovely oolong.

The dry leaves are pretty. Tightly rolled tea leaves and adorable rose buds. The dry leaves smell strongly of lemon. The floral scent form the rose is there, but it’s barely detectable.

Once infused the floral scent becomes much more prominent. Really nice. The taste is a mix of lemon and floral – not rose necessarily – with an almost buttery flavor from the oolong. I’m not getting any ginger, but to be honest I’m glad. I think the ginger would detract from the tea. It’s so delicate, light, and flavorful.

For the second infusion I added some sugar to my cup, and it tasted just like my great grandmother’s lemonade. She would add rose water to her lemonade right before serving it, and to this day it is the best lemonade I’ve ever had. The sugar heightens both the lemon and rose flavor, but it does hide the flavor of the oolong. Still, as a summertime treat I think this would be spectacular iced.

I’m already wishing I had bought more than a sample size of this one. It’s a keeper.

This is a sample thanks to the gang at Fusion Teas.

I had wanted to review the last tea that I had from the Teavivre tonight (Apple Awakening.) But I was too curious about this one that I had to try it out.
This is an interesting tea. Lately I’ve had a completely unintentional theme of coming across teas/tisanes that are quiet, but still enjoyable, despite my preference for more crazy/complex teas/tisanes.
1st smell: MMmmm smells great! I smell both the lemon and rose at once, though not to perfume-y. For those who don’t care for perfume-y teas, I don’t think you’ll have anything to worry about.
The tea is an Oolong base, which I still don’t know much about…but that’s ok. The package suggested 180, unfortunately that is not an option on my kettle, so I went with 175, thinking a lower temp would go better. Maybe I should try the Oolong setting next time, to see how that goes? (190) Whatcha all think?
1st taste: Like I said, quiet. The perfume smell goes down a fair amount.
2nd steeping: So far….not quite standing up to a 2nd steeping. It is still drinkable, but noticeably weaker. But I think I still got about 2-3 cups left in the package, so we’ll see.
The question is, would I buy this tea? Yes I would.

Lately I have not been rating my teas, at 1st it was because I got out of the habit, but truthfully, I am not comfortable with the rating system. Though if you asked me why, I would be unable to articulate why I don’t like it. But I don’t believe in judging others for making different decisions, so those who do like it, Go for it! Grins

From the here’s hoping teabox 3! The lemon here is very nice. With the ginger it kind of tastes like lemon grass too. Might of been the luck of the teas spoon, but not much oolong flavor. After taste has a some rose adding a nice feminine touch.
Btw, writing this on my new phone to test it out.

’Here’s Hoping’ traveling teabox Round #2 // Tea #12
Somehow I didn’t manage to order this one in Fusion’s Black Friday sample sale! I think I just wanted to go with one oolong. Their oolongs are nice. The dry blend has plenty of roses, both buds and petals, but they don’t really make an appearance in the flavor. The lemon is dominant, more sweet than tart and I don’t think it’s just the lemongrass that is making it so lemony. It’s very tasty! Very refreshing.. would probably make for the perfect iced blend. I’m guessing the oolong base was great, but it was tough to tell through all that lemon.
