For the curious, the Ogopogo is a mythical (as far as anyone can prove) sea serpent very similar in description to the Loch Ness monster that folklore and First Nations legends theorize lives at the bottom of Okanagan Lake. At this point it’s become the semi-official symbol of the city of Kelowna (where this tea is from) and people are still reporting sightings to this day.

This sample is labeled as a black tea but it’s pretty obvious that it’s mixed with white tea leaves (and oolong according to the description) so I gave it a lower steeping temp than I would most blacks. Maybe the greenish tea leaves in the blend are supposed to mimic the monster which is supposedly a mix of brown and green in colour..?

The primary component of this blend seems to be Darjeeling – it has that slightly wine-like fruity scent and flavour. It’s less astringent than most Darjeelings though, which might be the white and oolong teas coming into play. I’d describe this as more of an afternoon tea as it’s relatively light and doesn’t pack the caffeine punch of a breakfast blend.

thanks for explaining about the Ogopogo, never heard about it before.

It’s an Assam, not a Darjeeling in the Ogopogo blend. I agree that it’s lighter than a breakfast tea but can see how it would appeal to a wide range of people at any time of the day.
