This was a reject from what my mother bought the other week, she hates it. Basically it’s a cherry/fruit drink with measly amounts of oolong tea sprinkled throughout. I spent about three minutes trying to pick a decent amount of the oolong out of the pouch so I can get an idea of what it actually tastes like!

Surprisingly, I think they used something that’s very close to a Da Hong Pao. There’s a strong aged wood note alongside a sort of wet stone flavour. It actually does accompany the deep cherry flavour very well. It’s just a shame they don’t include more tea in each pouch, something that seems to be a trend with blends from this company.

Made some excellent iced tea with this though, I think it tastes better that way than hot to be frank. Won’t be buying this in the future, but the flavour is pretty decent.

Flavors: Cherry, Wet Rocks, Wood

Tea scoring criteria:

85 to 100 | Exceptional and unique. These teas are an unequivocal delight with every sip. The way they make me feel and the journey they take me on is incomparable.

70 to 84 | Delicious teas that are worth the price, albeit more common in quality and flavour. Still very good teas.

60 to 69 | Somewhat palatable teas that fail to deliver an experience at a level that would make me drink or buy more.

Under 60 | Just no…
