This is not bitter or harsh like some mints. And the oolong provides a creamy background. Like Laura said in her note, like the creamy center of a peppermint patty. And this is naturally sweet. No sugar for this one.
Perfect blend of mint and tea, without either flavor overpowering the other. Not drying like other mint teas sometimes are, and doesn’t turn bitter.
This oolong is fragrance-infused and does actually have any pieces of fresh mint amongst the oolong fists. Yet it somehow offers a nice fresh mint taste. I loved the way the intense mint flavor combined with the creamy mouthfeel of the Alishan to remind of the creamy center of a peppermint patty.
