I think what I’ve learned on steepster today is that there is a restaurant called P.F. Chang’s- actually, I do think I remember passing by it in Chicago when I lived there. That said, I am actually drinking this at home as part of a Revolution sampler pack (love sampler packs…) Dragon Eye is a really nice oolong, with just a hint in it of what tastes like peach- but just a hint. It really is very relaxing somehow, and I’m glad that I wound up inadvertently trying it among my miscellaneous samples. I’m about to sound like a broken record here, but this’d be a really good iced tea.

I’m not sure a strawberries n’ cream Kitkat from Japan would ever be a recommended pairing with this, but I went ahead and took that risk anyway. When I went to the Tea tastings at Tea Gschwendner they frequently gave us pieces of Vosges chocolates to go with whatever tea we were sipping. My husband thought the chocolate blunted the tea too much, but I loved the combination.

Ooo. strawberries and cream kitkat!

Lisbet

Yeah, and it’s vegan too! I got a bunch from a friend in Japan :D Other weird international foods that are vegan – steak n’ onion crisps from the UK (and all of their other potato chip flavors- prawn, ham n’ pickle, roast beef, roast chicken, etc.) The girl who got me to try those is a British vegan and those are her secret vice ;)

Kristin

No way! I didn’t think it would be. :) If I ever see those when I travel, I’ll have to try one.

Lisbet

My bad, it wasn’t strawberries and cream, it was ‘strawberry cranberry’ – that’s why it was vegan :) A lot of the ones sold only in Japan are- but not all of them I’d imagine. The green tea one looks too close to white chocolate.

I’m really sorry for not being so active lately — my tea budget has dried up and I’ve been drinking tea more for the caffeine than for flavor nowadays.

Anyway, I’ve also noticed that I like to put milk in everything I can — especially oolongs. This will probably annoy some people here on Steepster, but really, it brings out the flavor, especially for this tea. I bought this tea as a little stocking stuffer for my sister about two years back, so it’s old and probably not as tasty as getting a fresh bag. However, straight from the box, it had a flowery, warm scent which was similar when brewing. The taste without milk was slightly malty, round, and warm. There were some nice middle notes of what I can only describe as “Asteraceae-like,” which probably means that it was the safflower. With milk, it was easier to taste the warm oolong and sweet peach notes.

I liked this tea, especially with milk. …I think I should revisit it, though, with a fresher sample…

First found at PF Chang’s Chinese Bistro.

Many things can be done while enjoying tea.

The second most important is spending time thinking about life. Your job, your soul, your significant other, your money.

The first most important thing is not.

A coworker gave me this yesterday, the tea she always drinks when she goes to PF Chang. It came in a tiny little cardboard box! Very cute package design.

The tea is quite good – the peach & apricot really come through. I’m not getting the smokey taste that the package and other people mention, but that’s all right. I’m not sure what effect the safflower & marigold have on it – I’m not sure that I’ve had a tea with them in it before.

I would definitely drink this again. I had it with 2 packets of splenda. The sweet definitely brings out the fruit.

My one gripe, but it’s not specific to this tea, happens with a lot of teabags… that moment when you add the water to the cup and the string and tag get pulled into the cup… grrr!

I hate when that happens! I try to hang onto the tag and sometimes that works, but most of the time one ends up playing “fish the tag out of the tea.”

Skulleigh

Yeah. It’s another reason to stick with loose leaf :)
I was trying to hold onto the tag, but hot water was splashing out of the cup, since I was using a hot water dispenser. Owww!

I liked the look and feel of this before I even brewed it. Real, whole-leaf tea in a bag, that I can actually feel the texture of as opposed to little tiny bits of fragments and dust! The smell was nice as well.

After brewing, the tea is a lovely amber color and medium-bodied. The taste is very good oolong, with a touch of peach and apricot that isn’t overly sweet. I savored my cup and will be saving the bag for a resteep. I have a feeling it will hold up well. :)

This tea greatly surprised me; I picked it up from a truck stop in St. Louis, MO on my way to the airport after running out of all the tea I’d brought with me on the trip. I purchased it alongside several other pouches of Revolution varieties and tried it third or fourth in line, expecting it to have the same mediocre steep I’d gotten out of the others. Not so!

The apricot and safflower flavors dominate the taste of this infusion, while the lovely floral scent was strong enough to get the stewardess to ask me what I was drinking – from a window seat! The oolong flavor is much less smoky/roasty than you’d expect looking at it, and comes through strong under the fruit flavors to be one of the more satisfying bagged teas I’ve yet to try.

I discovered Revolution Tea at a restaurant in Uptown Minneapolis. Since then I have become a regular customer to their website (have an order in transit right now!). I love this Oolong. It’s mild and not too sweet. It is my very favorite iced tea. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the pot sized canisters on the website for my last order, so I had to order the regular size. Oh, well. That way, if I just want a cup, I can have a cup!

I also discovered this tea at PF Changs restaurant. Oolong is a newer taste experience for me. I found that I really liked this particular tea. The larger pyramid bags (makes a whole pot) were quite convenient. The flavor has a hint of smokiness without acidity and a little sweetness. Very pleasant.

Sorry to disappoint Ost, but I do not hate this tea at all. It’s really good! If I had any criticism it would be that I need more oolong taste from it. I also probably used too much water for the size of the sachet. However the peachy apricot goodness that shows up and lingers at the end of the sip is very pleasant and also subtle in a good way. Thanks Ost!

Flavors: Apricot, Peach

Bummer xD But hey, if you want more, let me know! I wasn’t a huge fan of that tea anyway :P
