I drank this at work this morning. Normally I wouldn’t drink a green oolong in the morning, as I usually prefer a black tea then, but I just started unpacking my tea and all I could find immediately was an assortment of greens and oblongs.

I also couldn’t fine my perfect teaspoon to dish it out, so I guesstimated by pouring a little pile into my hand. Must have guesstimated kind of off, though, because this cup really lacked the yuzu flavor. I pretty decently buttery, slightly floral high mountain oolong, but yuzu, no. Oh well. I did find my teaspoon by the end of the day so at least I will have it for tomorrow!

Greens and oblongs? Hahaha. Autocorrect always changes oolong to oblong for me…

Dinosara

LOL, guess that’s what I get for writing tasting notes on my iPad.

ashmanra

Ha! I never noticed that was one letter away. I might start calling them oblongs from now on just for fun!

Such a delicious treat… if high altitude oolong and yuzu gave birth to a butter pastry and somehow it all became tea… I upped the rating a wee bit today. Naivetea is delightful!

Truly, no one does fragrance infused (flavored) oolong like Naivetea. I was recently lucky enough to receive a sampler of Naivetea’s oolong. I have tried several of them previously via Teaviews, but not all of them. After a tough workout earlier today, this Yuzu was sounding particular refreshing even though I already know that it is not my favorite amongst their offerings.

I did notice that Naivetea has slightly revised their infusion instructions from my original sampling of it. They are recommending a 50 second infusion time on the first steep rather than their original 30 sec. I must say that I am pleased with this tweak. While it is possible that the oolong base changed as well (I believe it is Ali Shan), I found a much stronger butter presence in the first infusion. The flavor profile is rather full and is of rather natural, sweet grapefruit flavor that is both zesty and refreshing. I originally scored this a 7.5 on Teaviews (a 75 Steepster rating) and given this new nuance, I am bumping the score up a couple of points.

I always seem to confuse Yuzu with something else. For some reason I used to think it was a type of herb, when it’s really citrus (grapefruit-like)! After one whiff of these dried leaves though, I will never make the same mistake again. The tea itself is rolled Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess Oolong). Steeped for 4 minutes. A nice after-lunch tea.

Hi! It is actually not a grapefruit. It may look like one but it is its own fruit. :)

Oh! Good to know… I fixed it :) Thanks!

Oh yum. This is such a good tea. Infused with pomolo peel, very heavy citrus scent, but goes through a floral, vanilla phase and ends up sweet. My husband, a very non-Oolonger really liked it
