From Teaopia

This high grade Chinese Oolong contains apple pieces, caramel bits, almond pieces, safflower, sunflower, mallow flower and natural aromas. This delicious Oolong is a nut lover’s delight. The natural inherent nuttiness of the Chinese Oolong combined with the addition of almonds and caramel make this tea a must try. Great for multiple infusions, infuse the first cup for under one minute, and the second and third infusions at 1.5 minutes.

Another tea from Indigobloom, This one looked rather interesting. Shui Xian oolong with a whole jumble of stuff in it. It reminds me a bit of the Forbidden Fruit from David’s. Overall it is very nutty, with a rather smoky taste. I fully expected this to be a rather sweet tea, seeing the caramel pieces, but really I’m not quite sure what good they did, because clearly it did not melt and looks just a whole as before steep. I can’t really taste the jumble of the other ingredients much at all actually. The quality of the Shui Xian is better than that of David’s, and though there are awfully large pieces of twigs, there are rather bigger pieces of leaf. Instructions say to steep for 1min, but unless you’re using boiling water and packed a gaiwan full.. I don’t really see the point.

oh no! when I purchased my first 50g of this one, ages ago, it was amazing!! really sweet on its own and creamy. this second bag was purchased on a whim, and then stolen by a friend before I could try it… perhaps I need to steal some back and see for myself!! hmph.

actually the resteep was even more odd, not much flavour but it became cloudy and sweet. I think i’ll just leave it for 5 min next time..

hmmm I am really curious now. this is a mystery!

I really really reallyyy like this.
I’ve never had Teaopia until yesterday (although it’s much closer to home for me than my new obsession, Davids). And oolongs are new for me as well, but this sounded so tempting. It also smelled great in the tin, and I could see almond slivers, caramel pieces(!!!) and the flowers.
(I like how Teaopia is set up – all of the teas are on some kind of lazy susan deal in the middle of the shop, so you can look at and smell whatever you like, without HAVING to talk to the employees before buying something. Davids is cool but sometimes I like to just browse on my own.)
Anyways, like I said the smell is delicious. Very nutty, and sweet at the end. I want to say it’s like vanilla, but then decide it’s more caramel…but that isn’t it either! So it’s got to be the creamy part I’m getting.
I brewed this for 3 minutes, added a pinch of sugar, and the taste is just like I imagined! So good.
In a way it reminds me of Toasted Walnut from Davids Tea – I fell in LOVE with that tea when I got a sample of it, and haven’t been able to get any since but crave it all the time. Now that I have this though, the cravings won’t be so bad :)

*I noticed this tea has apple pieces in it – I can’t distinguish them from the almond really, and don’t notice any distinct apple flavour (which doesn’t change my opinion of this tea one way or the other, just something I noticed). It also seems that alot of Teaopia’s flavoured teas have apple pieces in them…just kinda interesting to me.

Interesting…my Teaopias have them behind the counter just like Davids.

This is one of my favourite teas of all time – there is nothing not to LOVE about it. From the aroma, to the taste, it’s absolutely marvelous. It even looks nice too!

The name says it all in terms of the flavour. This tea creates the aroma of caramel, and has a delicious, nutty taste. As a side note – it’s fun to pick out the chunks of caramel and eat them too.

I used to work at Teaopia, and by the end of it I couldn’t stand the smell of most teas after having to spend the day showing them to customers. Creamy Nut Oolong is one that never got old, and will always be one of my “go to” teas.

I also swear by this one for stomach problems. Though oolongs in general are great for digestion, this one just so happens to help me!

Overall, this is an AWESOME tea for a flavoured oolong, and I highly recommend trying it. Just take a smell of it and you’ll be addicted!

Oh how devine is the smell of this Oolong? Once brewed I find it looses much of the nutty, sweet smell & smells simply like tea (tea? you say, shouldn’t it smell like it? I only like flavoured tea though). Although there was a slight nutty taste, I could mostly taste the oolong, which as of right now I am not a big fan of.

Once this cooled most of the way, I found it drinkable but still not something I’m likely to make again.

So I’m not sure why, but I’ve been gravitating towards oolongs for my morning tea lately. Today is no exception, but its mostly because I am obsessed with my newest addition. I almost never make it to Teaopia, because its out of my way, but I was in the area and could not resist a tea named the same why I describe my own preferences. Seriously, I always describe my tea preferences as “I prefer creamy, nutty teas.” So obviously this was a must try.

Overall, I love the flavour, and get a hint of the buttery, vegetal oolong underneath a creamy flavour. I find that the caramel dominates this blend, at least on the first steeping. I haven’t yet tried a second steeping but I hear good things.

The description indicates apple pieces, but I get NO hint of apple in the brewed tea. That said, I still enjoy the cup. Its very smooth, and and gives the feeling of sweetness without being sickly sweet.

I love this tea. This was one of the first teas I tried after finishing the 3 tea sample pack my girlfriend got me for Christmas that got me started on loose leaf.

I went to teaopia to pick out my own and this was one of them. I’ve already gone back to pick out a few new teas but I got a refill of this and expect it to be one that I continue to keep on hand.

Love the flavor, not too strong. Had a cup with lunch and then rested per some for my travel mug on the way to work. Drinking it right now :)

After liking this tea I’ve been trying other oolongs such as plum, and ordered a couple more online since oolong seems to be my thing.

iPhone typo. Meant to say I had re-steeped the tea.

This WAS my favourite tea in the store, until I discovered Apple Pie Oolong. ;) The flavours are VERY similar, but Apple Pie is slightly more creamy which is why it wins for me.

In any case, this tea is smooth and delicious. It’s not gonna taste as flavoured as it smells, which is fine because oolong doesn’t need a strong over-powering flavour. Perfect on it’s own, don’t add anything to this.

This used to be my favorite tea. With a light creamy taste, and undertones of nuts, it was hard to go wrong with this one. Also, it makes wicked re-steeps, and excellent hot or cold lattes. If you have a major sweet tooth like I did before, add some honey to the tea. It makes it taste incredible. This used to get me through some of the most stressful afternoons at work.

I used to love this tea as well!! but then I bought it again and it wasn’t the same. I guess it depends on the batch

Oversteeped again! Not to mention, the leaves themselves have been stored for… two years now, I believe, albeit in good conditions. Please accept my humble apologies, O Gracious Tea Gods.

Just kidding. Creamy Nut Oolong was my first personal loose leaf (outside of Yum Cha and my mom’s stock), and I loved it oh so much. I bought 50g of it from a Teaopia promo coupon and slowly savoured my way though it, but when I found out Teaopia would soon be no more, I went right back and bought another 100g for my stock. This was long before I realized that I cannot go through so much tea within its ideal shelf life, or that they even had shelf lives! Ahh, the fond memories.

Still, even though today’s steep was a bit too strong, there’s nothing I really don’t like about it. It’s rich and smooth, with the caramel nougat doing pretty much all the work but the leaves below are still distinctly there to balance it all out. One of the few “dessert” teas that I enjoy, and great for relaxing. (I avoid over-multisteeping with this one though, because the magic all disappears once the candy melts.)

As I work my way through my dwindling old stock, I pine again for the good Teaopia days.
