Oolong is between black and green tea in taste and color. The best oolong tea in the world gros in the mists and fertile ground of the Wuyi Mountains of China’s Fujian Province. Our luscious White Peach Oolong blends this remarkable tea with ripe, juicy, 100% natural peach flavor — truly a delight for the senses. Savor our White Peach Oolong — it’s like an afternoon on the porch.

I ripped open the bag and was blasted with a sunshine-y whiff of juicy peach. YUM! Once brewed, the peachy bliss scent lingered for a spell but then faded like a sunset.
First sip. Uh, hello? Where’s the peach?! This one smells much more peachy than it tastes! There isn’t much oolong taste either. Just like bland tea that someone melted a Popsicle in.
Second sip. More Popsicle flavor. Decent. But NOT what I want in a peach tea. I guess by “white peach” I should assume less flavor. Rename this “Clear” or “Transparent Peach,” ’cause flavor is what this lacks.
It does SMELL good though – perhaps I can use it as a potpourri?
TTB Tea #2
1 bag (2.22g)/6oz purified water served hot and neat.
I originally set the timer for 5 min (they suggest 3-5), but by 3 min the liquor was a quite dark burnt orange-ish brown so I decided to stop there. That wasn’t too surprising since the tea began smelling strongly of peaches (in they jelloy sense) as soon as the bag hit the water.
The flavor, thankfully, is not jelloy. Yes, there is a strong peachy flavoy that does in some aspects remind me of unset jello, but the oolong base is quite strong which saves it from being hot jello. A very good tea- one I appreciated drinking and would willingly drink again, but due to the vast aray of teas out there I won’t be adding this to my staples or even my “rebuy eventually” list.
Long time no see…
So long, I’ve forgotten how to really think in tea…
So I drank this. It was good and warm and peachy. But I have no idea how to go about describing a oolong. A bit drying, astringent as it is. I like its slight bitterness, I may have over brewed it but I like it like that.
Hrummmm…I can’t listen to podcasts and type, and I ran out of tea to really dissect the taste when actually paying attention. $5 I’ll be slacking off more tomorrow, so I’ll make a better attempt at this.
On the absolutely generic level, I like it!
I selected a bag of this tea out of the Traveling Tea Box. I needed some tea on the fly this morning, so I went for the quick teabag approach. This tea isn’t awful by any means, but it isn’t going to knock anyone’s socks off either. It has a very light but pleasant peach aroma and taste. I’m not finding any depth to this tea, and the oolong that Stash used is about 5 kinds of bland. But it’s not awful…there’s just much better tea out there. As my cup cooled down, the taste was much sweeter and juicier. It would probably make a lovely iced tea if you made a fierce concentration of it first. This was a refreshing cup…I’ll give it that. Not too shabby for a bagged tea.
Brewed, with the mug just sitting to one side, I can SMELL the peach without even putting my nose in it. But leaning in, I also smell something… vaguely reminiscent of that Ginger Twist. I had a look of HORROR on my face there for a moment. I’m sure I scrubbed my mug well! Nooo.
Can’t really smell the tea. I think I do. Hmm.
Woah. The taste reminds me of peach wine. I’m serious. The peach isn’t that ‘fruity peach’ taste, but that ‘fermented wine’ taste. All it really needs is that alcoholic taste. Huh. Maybe I should steep it for a bit longer. I only did three minutes of the “three to five”.
The best thing about understeeping, I suppose, is that you can always just put the bag back in.
Longer steep… Doesn’t do much. Slightly stronger taste of the oolong I think. Not the peach, though. Still has a serious sort of ‘wine’ taste. Especially at the edge of my tongue. How odd. Unsure how to rate it.
