Brews up mildly sour, grape has dominated and you can’t taste the tea.
The leaf really swells up too.
This only steeps twice, though they’re both good steeps.

I bought this tea on sale at the end of year sale at teavana. My initial thoughts when I tried it was eh, but the more I drank it I started to like it more and more. I am very bad at describing teas but this one has a mild sweet taste with a fruit flavored undertone. Bottom line I like it, I liked it so much I went to the store to buy more because teavana employees said they would not be selling it anymore.
Side note it says to steep 3 mins but I have a tendency to forget that I am steeping and over steep. This is because I make the tea in a tumbler and bring to work and get busy and forget. The tea still tastes good though.
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity
So, I first tried this tea in a Teavana store. I had a coupon for a free hot tea, so I tried this. The leaves smell of a wonderful concord grape, which I love! I had them brew it to my instructions (no sugar, 1tbsp/16oz) and it was like drinking warm grape juice with a mild oolong note at the end. I personally loved it then.
A few months later, I was in Teavana to purchase some of their “end of year” sale items and noticed that this tea was 75% off! I bought 8oz of it, thinking I would drink it quickly, but it definitely doesn’t taste like what I had in the store anymore.. Not sure why, but the grape flavor isn’t really noticeable and it’s just like drinking a low-quality oolong that makes you go “…meh.”
Flavors: Blueberry, Grapes
The smell of the leaves is amazing, when I first tasted the tea the flavor is mostly grapes, they overcome the flavor of the Oolong tea, for some that might be a bad thing, to me I really care about the final flavor and I did enjoyed this one, maybe not to buy some ounces, but still is a good tea. Maybe next time I’ll try it iced.
Picked this one out today almost my chance. It is not great, not terrible and a little too sweet. I think it would make an excellent iced tea as it has very little bitterness and astringency. I would only cautiously recommend someone try this tea. Some people will like it, more probably will not.
Tastes quite a bit like grape juice, which is a bit comforting when the initial smell is more of an artificial grape candy type smell. It’s definitely very light, but I’m almost disappointed that it doesn’t have more of a grape-ier flavor to it. Definitely a good iced tea, though!
I tried this one iced in the store, and after the first sip, decided not to take it home (not for lack of effort on the barista’s part, I might add). I thought the copious amounts of hibiscus I saw in the tin would mellow out in an iced brew, and I may have been correct, but I don’t think I’ll ever know, because it was steeped a bit too long for my liking, and all I could really taste was bitterness from oversteeped oolong and a bit of artificial grape flavor, kind of like Kool-Aid. I won’t be getting or trying this one again.
Smell wise: Dry it smells a lot like Grape flavored Nerds. Wet, not so much artificial tasting alittle bit more like grape juice.
Taste: a hint of grape closely followed up by what I’m assuming is the Oolong because it tastes a lot like the other Oolongs I’ve had. This will probably make a good iced tea though I am not impressed by it. Not going to buy this one again.
