Somewhere between a green and black tea, Dragon Eye Oolong begins with the finest quality Oolong tea available. This smooth, well-rounded elixir blends smoky Chinese oolong with safflower, peach and apricots.

This fine oolong has a medium body with a cleansing finish. The peach and apricot in the blend provide a nice fruitiness to the tea, but it’s hard to pinpoint that is peach and apricot without reading the tea box. It’s mysterious in a way and I quite enjoy that. The safflower boosts the fruitiness while confusing the palate I think. Overall, I enjoyed this oolong and recommend it to whomever wants a soothingly original tea.
Preparation: steeped for 4 min. at 205 degrees.
