“One of the world’s most subtle and expensive teas, exclusively from the island of Formosa. Exotica Champagne Oolong is light and mild, with a fruity, slightly sweet flavor that harmonizes the elements of black and green tea. Its pale gold color is reminiscent of fine Champagne.

I’m trying to find this tea on Stash’s website with little luck. I wonder if it’s been discontinued.

I got this teabag in a swap, I believe, and only have the one so this is my only shot to see how the tea measures up. So, of course, the first thing I do is oversteep it. Champagne Oolong is described on the tea bag as a ‘pale golden color reminiscent of fine champagne’ but if I were to pick a color I’d say my tea is more of an amber. Oops. I didn’t even leave the tea in the cup too long, no more than 7-8 minutes? The temperature may have been off, I suppose…

I definitely get a fruity note from this tea. It makes me think of a very faint cherry on the first taste, but as I drink more of this blend I’m refining that opinion to something more along the line of a muscat grape. The flavor left on the tongue after swallowing is more of a vegetal/grassy note.

This is a nice tea. I mean, even for a bagged tea it’s got a lot of flavor. (Perhaps because it’s been oversteeped. >_s waaaaay better than the usual junk Bigelow tea bags I find at work.
