drank Lychee Oolong by Naivetea
408 tasting notes

Got this recently in a swap with Stephanie. Simply put, it is THE most incredible flavored oolong I’ve ever tasted. From the first steep to the last, it bursts with sweet, lychee juiciness. And the aroma smells exactly like the flavor profile. I was amazed at how long the fruit flavor lasted. Most flavored teas are good for only 1 to 2 infusions but this bad boy kept going strong into the 6th/7th steep!

This is one of the few teas where the flavor actually tastes like the fruit. It’s intensely fruity, something I ordinarily dislike in tea, but here the flavor is just so delicious and perfect.

Flavors: Lychee, Sweet

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 g 4 OZ / 118 ML

My Rating Criteria:

95 to 100: Top shelf stuff. Loved this tea and highly recommend it

90 to 94: Excellent. Enjoyed this tea and would likely repurchase

80 to 89: Good but not great. I liked it though it may be lacking in some aspects. I’ll finish it but probably won’t buy again

70 to 79: Average at best. Not terrible but wouldn’t willingly drink again

60 to 69: Sub-par. Low quality tea, barely palatable

59 and below: Bleh

Fell into tea years ago, and for a long time my experience was limited to Japanese greens and a few flavored teas. My tea epiphany came a few years ago when I discovered jade oolongs. That was the gateway drug to the world of fine tea and teaware.

With the exception of a handful of lightly scented teas, I drink mostly straight tea. I love fresh green and floral flavors and as such, green tea and Taiwanese oolongs will always have a place in my cupboard. After avoiding black tea forever, Chinese blacks are beginning to grow on me. I’ve dipped my toe into a few puerhs now but it’s still relatively new territory for me. I also enjoy white tea and tisanes but reach for them less frequently.

Other non-tea interests include: cooking, reading, nature, MMA, traveling when I can, and of course putzing around on the interwebs.
