A sweet, nutty oolong. I never really picked up on the fruitiness of the blend that Teavana claims is present, but then Teavana also claims this will help me diet ‘naturally’ and I haven’t seen any evidence of that, either. Crazy ol’ Teavana.

When I used to order this at Teavana’s drink bar, I’d always get it slightly sweetened because the barista had a tendency to scorch the leaves. Now, when I drink it at home, it never needs any additives. It also oversteeps well, for those of us with a tendency to abandon our tea leaves for extended periods of time. The flavor gets richer and deeper but never overwhelming.

An excellent tea that I wish hadn’t been discontinued! I’ve got a stock of it that I’m holding onto and slowly drinking. It’s a tea that goes great with savory and spicy foods. It can be a bit odd to drink on its own, but trust me — try it with some spicy chips and salsa, and it will absolutely win you over. It’s a little smoky and savory. The leaves are very full, too, I use less than a teaspoon per cup because they expand so much. Absolutely worth it though, so if you can find it, then try it!

Good but not easy to get right. I tried filling about 1/2 inch of the infuser or cup with warm milk, then pouring the water over the leaves and letting it steep. Very nutty and has rasberry and cinnamon flavors.

So yummy! I sweetened it with some local honey, which gives it the subtle sweetness it needs to bring out the nutty flavors. I’m going to miss you Formosa Nut Oolong.

Excellent tea for a novice who is not familiar with types a flavors. This Oolong doesn’t require much sweetening and isn’t very picky about water temperature so you are less likely to burn the leaves. This Oolong is great year around but makes a perfect winter tea. The nuttiness really stands out but I feel it slightly overpowers the taste of the leaves.

This was a nice oolog. I prefer it hot with sweetener (I usually use Stevia to sweeten all my teas, but I occasionally use rock sugar). It makes a great after dinner/dessert tea because it has sweet and nutty undertones. It blends well with Hazelnut Dolce Rooibos (Teavana).

The candied violet flowers are my favorite part and the pistachios make it deliciously nutty.

I like this well enough, but not enough to repurchase. It goes into my tea rotation at work pretty often. I prefer the taste of Teavana’s Almondina Biscotti, though. If this tea is discontinued, you may want to try that as a substitute.
