I am not a flavored tea drinker, for I am usually repulsed by whats in the cup. However, I’ve been eyeing this tea for a little bit, and my curiosity got the better of me. The leaf is an assortment of spices, nuts, and candied fruit; although, the leaf is dominantly oolong. I got a new travel tea press for Christmas, so I decided that this would be a good time to break it in. I felt awkward brewing western style, for it has been so long, but I managed. I gave my finished concoction a sip, and it was actually really good. The brew begins with nice woody and nutty tones. The flavor progresses to some spice and a minor tang. Then, the brew ends with a sweet honey and caramel aftertaste. The flavors are not overwhelmingly powerful, and my stomach was not upset by them. I really liked this brew, and I am happy that I have some leftover. I’ll be sure to show this off to some other “flavored” tea drinkers.
