Sipdown! Thank goodness I have no more of these teas in my cupboard. I’m incredibly unimpressed with the customer service of this company (chasing them for ingredients, friends orders not being received, etc), and their black base is seriously the most finicky I’ve had.
So, an oolong. Dry, it smells divine. The best citrus smell ever. Steeped, it smells a little toasty. And.. even though I added a bit of sugar to bring out the citrus, all I can really taste is the oolong. A little citrus at the end of the sip, but that might be the orange I just peeled. It’s also a little… pithy. I didn’t think I steeped it long enough for the pith from the peels to come out, but apparently I did.
It’s not a terrible oolong, but it is pretty basic. And it’s not the type of oolong flavour I enjoy most (please give me OTT floral green oolongs TYVM).
The other 2 tsp of the sample is cold brewing, and I have higher hopes for that one. It should go well (should! I hope!) with the lemonade syrup I made.
(1.5 tsp in 10 oz)
