At first I was bummed that mighty leaf only had Orchid Oolong in a 50 pack and super expensive, but I soon discovered I could enjoy this tea loose – I was super jazzed. It’s been a while since I tried this tea, most likely a sample, and I was not disappointed. I adore this tea. The smell is grand and the taste is even better. It’s full bodied but no real bitterness – it’s on the verge of being delicate. Slight fruity smell but more refined as opposed to artificial. A+

The first time i tried this, i will be honest, i was a little disappointed. but the second time, i really quite enjoyed it. It doesnt have much of a flavour (apart from an oolong flavour) while you sip it, but it has a delicious coconut after taste which is like coconut cream or fresh coconut, not dessicated coconut. The coconut cream taste is beautiful its very delicate and creamy but not really fruity. It reminds me of the fresh coconuts i drank while in thailand. I dont really understand the name though. I was expecting a more delicate floral taste rather than a coconut one. but i definitely like this tea.

I tried this tea for the first time while brunching at Hank’s Oyster Bar in DC. My friend and I swooned over the delicate vanilla flavoring, not at all overwhelming as it is in so many teas that use vanilla extracts. I went home and bought a couple packages from Mighty Leaf online, and I was just as impressed at home.

Personally, I like to brew it for shorter than recommended to keep the flavor light and subtle… but I can’t take black tea, so I tend to like my oolongs underbrewed to avoid taking on a black tea character..

I took the tea into work and forced it on several people. One non-tea drinker considered himself a convert afterwards. The rest asked for seconds…

Definitely recommended.

Love this tea! I bought a big bag of it on sale after receiving a sample of it in a previous Mighty Leaf order. Usually I am not big on coconut but this is a good “unwinding” tea. The taste rolls off the tongue really smooth-like. The scent is great, too. Subtle and soft.

So I was expecting strong floral from this one. Imagine my surprise, then, when I opened the pouch and got…coconut! Really strong coconut, as in coconut essence rather than the actual fruit. It actually reminds me of a body shop soap I used to use when I was younger! There’s no faulting the leaves, though. They’re rolled, and a beautiful green-brown with some yellowish stalks. No crushed or broken leaves here. Given that this is called “Orchid” oolong, and Orchid is a flower, I’m still thrown by the strong coconut scent.

I gave the bag three minutes in 180 degree water, after which the liquor is a golden yellow-brown. The scent of coconut is still strong, although there’s a fresh, mineral oolong scent also developing, and maybe a hint of light floral.

The strongest note in the flavour is initially coconut. The middle of the sip is more oolong, however, and is mildly buttery. A delicate floral comes out at the end of the sip, but it’s not nearly as potent as I expected it to be. It’s a heady floral, though, so orchid would fit. Sadly, it’s all but overwhelmed by coconut, which is really far too pungent, and quite oddly so. It really is like someone dumped half a bottle of coconut essence in the cup. Another slight issue is the astringency, which adds a dryness to the end of each sip. It’s not terrible, but paired with the coconut it’s pulling this one down in my estimation. It’s drinkable, but not really for me.

It must be the luck of the draw, but here is another case of an oolong with an irresistibly scrumptious scent in the dried form. Seriously, it smells so rich and luxurious—a bit chocolatey, in fact. I just realize what these dried leaves smell like: dark chocolate with unsweetened coconut bits!

The liquor is on the dark side, but I did use a good portion so that may have something to do with the brownish amber tint of the brew. I’m not quite ready to do the gaiwan thing, but I figured that I’d ease into it by starting to use more tea in my infusions and keep to shorter steeps. The scent is rather different from the dried leaves. I’m not sure how to describe it. I still like the aroma, but it no longer conjures images of delicious chocolate-coconut confections in my mind.

The taste is very good. To me it seems more sweet floral than specifically coconut, but whatever the “natural flavors” are, I’m happy with this blend and look forward to the second infusion of the large yet-to-be-fully unfurled leaves!

second infusion: this was not as good, making me think that the charms of this tea were somewhat superficial, inhering primarily in the added flavors, not the underlying tea, which felt a bit scratchy and tasted less enticing once stripped of the flavor trappings.

The hint of coconut is really lovely.

This is one of my first oolong teas (and my first tasting note). I prepared this according to directions and added a bit of sugar. It was “okay”, but seemed to have a bit of a metalic taste. Perhaps it was just me or maybe it’s been in the tin too long. However, by the end of the cup I was enjoying it and I even steeped another. I didn’t detect any orchid in flavor and I don’t recall an orchid smell.

got this as a sample

smells very very floral… if you had enough of this you could scent a room with it, light liquor, liquor smells florally too also tastes exactly like it smells… if you like floral teas go for it… not my preference
