I’ve been overly obsessed with Medjool Dates and Almond Butter Lately

So when I saw this flavored Oolong – I KNEW I had to try it!

Prior to infusing this smelled like sugary dates underneath a charcoal type oolong. Once infused it smelled more like a toasted/roasted oolong with a bit of sugar dates aroma.

Once I started sipping I could taste a strong toasted/roasted/charcoal type oolong base with a bit of floral and nutty hints as well as a slight rich yet sugary dates type taste. As it cools a bit more I can start tasting the dates a bit more but they are subtle.

I do really like this. I was hoping for more date-flavor but it’s still quite good, regardless. Perhaps I should just make sure there are more Date Chunks in my next cuppa!

PS: Also as it cools a bit – I’m starting to taste some cocoa flavors, too! Now THAT’S interesting!

Another one gone! It’s a nice nutty oolong with sweet date notes. I enjoyed this tea while I had it but I don’t think I’d reorder it

I really like the combination of dates and Se Chung Oolong. The Oolong has a sweet, slightly toasted flavor that melds with the date flavor in a really delicious way. Sweet, slightly smoky, a little bit nutty … really good!

Here’s my full-length review:


Dates and Oolong sound good.
