From Tea Lux

This tea uses the orchid to blend with top grade oolong. This oolong tea has absorbed all the fragrances from the orchid flower, which produces a superb floral fragrance and smooth taste.

I got my sample of this tea back when I first started drinking green oolongs, which was apparently 6 months ago, and I haven’t gone back to it since. So many to try! But I thought it would be nice to go back to this one and see what I think of it now. I liked it back when I first had it.

The steeped tea smells very floral, and it’s kind of a mash-up between some of the “orchid” florals and jasmine ones. The flavor is nice and floral and reminds me a lot of jasmine teas. There’s not a lot else going on with this tea—even fairly cool I don’t get a lot of nuances in the flavor—but it’s certainly tasty and very drinkable.

Oh my! The aroma of the dry leaves is amazing, but I think you will love it or hate it. My first thought was that I had smelled this before…Desitin! No offense, but it really really smelled like baby rash ointment! When the leaves unfold they are HUGE.

Next, the most important part. How does it taste? The aroma is softer now, and more like a fine jasmine. Since I don’t really smell orchid often I am comparing this to something I do know and I have a lot of jasmine growing here. This is so much better than my jasmine black tea from Southern Season. The jasmine hits you on the head like a brick in that one, and the base is nothing to write home about. But this, ahh, this is NICE! Lovely oolong base, lovely lovely level of orchid. This is definitely floral, so if you don’t like floral don’t drink it. But it isn’t “get the soap of my mouth” floral like some scented teas. The aroma of the tea as I sip now transports me to the loveliest Asian garden I can imagine. I just want to sit here and sigh and drink tea in the silence. As much silence as one can have with three kids and two big dogs in the house, anyway. (Hi, Sandy! Yes, Sasha and Sable are here enjoying the a/c and the cheese!)

Thank you, Quiltguppy, for this lovely tea experience!

You need the kids & dogs creating chaos so that you can better appreciate the beautiful Asian garden in your mind. ;)

The orchid scent is literally wafting into my kitchen. Yes, it’s a very floral tea. The taste is nice. The oolong itself is fresh and pairs well with the orchid. I think this was an enjoyable tea, but the floral flavor is really intense. This oolong requires a certain level of tolerance for floral tea.
