I’ve always looked forward to shopping at Daiso whenever visiting the west coast. For the unacquainted, Daiso is an Asian dollar store that sells some really nifty Japanese items. Kawaii stuff, stationary, housewares, toys, snacks, etc. So imagine how stoked I was when the first Daiso store in the midwest opened up just a few minutes from my house. I’ve been dropping by regularly and usually leave with one of their bottled Japanese teas.
I’m a big fan of the Ito-En line of bottled teas and their Golden Oolong is one of my favorites. Last night though it was missing from the beverage case so I picked up a similar tea from a different brand. This Sangaria tea was a darker oolong than Ito-En which is made from a blend of Tie Guan Yin and Huan Jin Guei leaves. To me it tasted like a Da Hong Pao. A heavier roast with a cinnamon warmth and motor oil like thickness and mouthfeel. Definitely on the darker end of the oolong spectrum. Not my preferred flavor profile but still a very drinkable tea.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Dark Wood, Thick
Finally I tried a Tea completely different from Ice teas which I usually found here. Sangaria Oolong Tea is just ready to drink, there isn’t addiction of water or sugar. The ingredients are only Oolong tea and vitamin C. The flavour reminds me the taste of the oolong tea of the company “Touch Organic”: nutty, a little sweet. The taste is nutty and cocoa. No sweet, no bitter, it’s neutral. It’s better to drink it cold.
Flavors: Cocoa, Nutty
