This is the first of the teas from my epic swap with JustJames. The teas he sent will keep me busy for awhile :) Thank you!
I wasn’t going to break into my latest swap box yet, but I saw this and wanted to compare it side-by-side with the Monkey Picked Oolong from Teavana that I had earlier. At $22 per 2oz it is slightly less expensive than the Monkey Picked, but in my opinion still overpriced for the quality.
Even though I think it is overpriced, I do prefer this over the Monkey Picked. It has a nice creamy floral taste to it that the Monkey Picked did not have. I haven’t had a chance to resteep this yet to see how it holds up so I’ll post some more later when I do.
Edited to note that gummy worms do not pair well with this Oolong… I’m not really sure what I was thinking, must be the confusion over not finding candied fruit in a tea from Teavana. Or it could just be the lack of sleep, hard to tell at this point.
