At first we started off this blend of Formosa Oolong with just lemon, but soon Dan decided that his love of grapefruit (pink specifically) should be shared in this tea. We then added freshly peeled organic pink grapefruit rind and created a fantastically balanced and refreshing Oolong tea that we are sure you’ll love.

Backlog:

The oolong tea has an earthy flavor, with notes of toasty nut which adds a compelling contrast to the sweet-tart flavors of the citrus fruit. The citrus notes were bright and lovely.

The second infusion is better than the first, so this is one you definitely want to resteep!

Dexter3657 sent me an amazing package of teas! I appreciate it so so much! I can’t even say! thank you! This will be the first to try of many. All of the fruity teas smelled so lovely! I wasn’t sure how to steep Formosa oolong, so I did a search and the teas that actually had steep instructions said boiling at 3-4 minutes. That seemed too high, but I thought I’d try it anyway. As dry leaves, this one had such a lovely sweet citrusy aroma and the flavor is the same. The flavor of the oolong itself is tough to find behind the equal parts grapefruit and lemon… so bright, fresh, sweet, fruity, crisp. Just a punch of citrus. Love this flavor. Very thirst quenching! This is the grapefruit I can manage and not those cups of juice they would hand out in elementary school. The lemon reminds me of bergamot. I don’t think I had any Formosa oolongs in my collection, so now I have a bit of this one left. This is very good! The second steep tasted just as good.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea! I am not a huge fan of oolongs, I tend to find them way too flowery for me. This was a really vegetal oolong though. I got a hint of citrus, though little in the way of specific lemon and grapefruit. But the citrus notes blended really well with the oolong base. The oeral tea was vegetal based with hints of the fruit flavour. I am really glad I have a sample of this to play around with!

I took this out of the Great Canadian Travelling Tea Box in Jan and I’m just trying it now. I’ve been looking to try this one for a long time, I really want to find a good grapefruit tea but I’ve had no luck yet. This tea is not going to do it for me. It’s good, juicy lemon for sure, but I’m not getting any grapefruit. I’ve never had Formosa oolong before but I’m finding it tastes more like a black than an oolong. I’m not looking for a lemon tea so I would not order this one.

Oh I hope you’ll love Southern Sunrise then! It’s grapefruitorama.

Oooooh I can’t wait. That’s why I picked it, but I don’t know what I’ll do if I love it. I guess we’ll just have to do another swap!
