8 Tasting Notes
I can’t quite decide if I like this tea or not. The peppermint flavor is strong, but the oregano is stronger in scent. It has my taste buds confused. There is a touch of milky-ness coming from this tea which clashes with the mint flavor, and leaves me a little queazy after taking a lot of sips.
I can imagine myself craving this while nursing a congested cold. I tried it hot but would like to try this as iced tea as well. Will update again in the future!
Flavors: Milk, Peppermint
I absolutely love this tea! I didn’t realize I was such a lover of floral teas until I purchased this. This tea is very heavy on the lavender and rose (see picture) and has a slight sweetness from the papaya and apples. I have drank this almost every single night since I’ve purchased it, about 2 weeks ago.
It is a luxurious tea that is the perfect ingredient to unwind with at the end of the day. I do steep this at boiling but only steep for 4-5 minutes. Any longer and the flavor and scents becomes a little too strong bordering on the side of soap.
It is lovely to try a new tea that is different from my usual caffeine free blends.
Flavors: Lavender, Rose
This is the only milk oolong i’ve ever tried but I sure do love it! The creaminess it gives without any added flavors is amazing. This is my go-to when I just want a clean flavor.
I love serving this to non-tea drinkers. They are so confused where the creaminess is coming from. All natural baby! I can’t wait to try other milk oolongs to compare :)
On a whim I got a small bag of this from DavidTea while I was stopping by to pick up other teas. It sounded so good and smelled amazing! I love coconut, I love oolong, and I love pie. What could go wrong?! I tried it the next day and regretted my purchase. I am starting to realize I may not be a fan of chocolate in my tea.
The thick oily slickness on top, and a very murky color that is very off-putting. I taste the notes of coconut and cream but barely notice the “pie” part of the tea. I poured it for a friend and he liked it just fine.
Reading the other reviews I feel I may need to give this one another shot. I will play around with the steeping to see if I get different results.
I love trying different kinds of rooibois but I always end up going back to this one. It’s warm, comforting, with the just right amount of sweetness. This is the loose leaf that also got my SO hooked on tea. He makes it a point to request for this every time he sees me starting a pot.
I have a huge tin of this at home but its been sold out at David’s tea online for awhile. Fingers crossed that is hasn’t been discontinued!!
