From Rare Tea Republic

Ripe apricot, butternut squash, sweet finish
A juicey ripe apricot aroma leads to an exceptionally flavorful liquor with vegetal undertones of cooked butternut squash and a lingering finish.

Wow what a surprise! I grabbed this thinking it was a black tea. It was so delicious I decided to do a review on it for http://sororiteasisters.com/
As I looked into this tea further I realized its an OOLONG!
I never would have thought that!
It has such a black tea flavor!
Perfect notes such as ripe juicy apricot, butternut squash, syrup, malt, omgoodness.
What a wonderful way to wake up on this cool crisp leafy autumn day!

What a treat! Going on my shopping list as I unfortunately only got a sample size when I ordered.

Ooooh sounds delicious!

Azzrian

It is SO unusual! I was just beside myself that this could be an oolong! VERY tasty!

Sil

I’m always a fan of oolongs that don’t appear to be oolongs lol

Yet another sample from Rare Tea Republic that I am attempting to purge from my cupboard… like Azzrian at first I was under the impression that this was a black tea and I also had to look up where Bihar is (Northern India – it borders on Nepal).

I tried to follow the RtR steeping parameters which said 5 minutes at 205 F.

I definitely am getting a butternut squash/pumpkin sort of flavor here in the aroma as well as the flavor of this tea, which is a clear light orange. This is a nice mellow brew, pleasantly sweet, and yes I’m getting some apricot as well.

Very enjoyable although it wouldn’t be a “must have” item for me, which is probably just as well since RTR is no longer around.

Republic of Tea’s website has added a lot of the teas that were previously sold through Rare Tea Republic (not this one though…just looked). Under the “Loose Leaf Tea” tab, the 2nd choice is “Rare Loose Leaf Tea”. Saw it when linking from one of their emails.

thanks for that…
