My first thought on opening the package was “Where’s the TEA?” – there are so many jasmine blossoms and other random plant-y bits that you can hardly see the little oolong nuggets in the blend. But then the scent hit me, and I didn’t care anymore. SO ORANGEY… Yum.

Brewed, it’s got an orange oil aroma and a golden yellow brew.

My first steep was very orange, but with the oolong underneath, and just a hint of a silky mouthfeel. The second brew almost tastes more lemony than orange, but the flavors are more mellow and blended.

Very posh, very nice. I like this LOTS.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
