Tea of the Week for August 21, 2017!

Before anyone gets any ideas that this is some kind of tea remedy for that special time of month – no – although as one who occasionally suffers from some horrific PMS symptoms, I would love to find something that actually worked for that.

This tea isn’t about that.

Instead, this is an Anxi Hairy Crab Mao Xie Fujian Oolong blended with Pineapple, Mango and Strawberry. Get it? Yeah – so maybe it’s not the cleverest of names but hopefully it will get a chuckle out of some of you.

In case you’re unfamiliar with a “Hairy Crab” Oolong, it’s a ‘green’ floral Oolong – it’s very smooth and sweet with a thick mouthfeel. When I first sampled this particular tea, I immediately thought that it would be nice blended with fruit. (It’s also quite nice on it’s own – unflavored – but that’s not the kind of teas 52Teas offers.)

But as a blend – this is really tasty. I recognize the pineapple first and the mango comes in just after that. The strawberry hits about mid-sip. The smooth, sweet floral notes of the Oolong play well with the fruit flavors and seem to emphasize the ‘tropical’ kind of theme that’s going on with these particular fruits. You know, kind of like – maybe you just stepped off the plane and they put a flower lei around your neck and offered you an island fruit drink. A tropical getaway for your tastebuds!

Day eight of not drinking caffeine after three. Nope, not working out all that well. I may stop drinking caffeine at about five which is still far better than my previous seven or eight o’clock. Baby steps.

Shopping in my stash and came across this delight.

The plan is to get out for a brief or long walk, depending on my health that day, first thing. And so I did, with this with me. And then, I spilled half the carry mug in my bag—-boo!

Bright pineapple and sweet mango. Possibly a wee bit of tartness from the strawberry. The oolong comes through all floral and lovely. Another winner.

One thing I really appreciate about 52Teas blends is the range of flavours, without a pattern of sweetening things to death like some other blenders. This mix is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. The flavours come through as natural, with the tea base peeking through. A good balance, yet again.

Also, 52Teas needs to make more oolong blends. I wonder whether a milk oolong vanilla marshmallow would work?

INT- A POORLY LIT STAGE

Crowkettle slowly approaches a disconnected mic on side stage, brown paper bag fully enveloping head.

I like this one better than Butiki’s Flowery Pinapple Oolong.

Iced.

It took me forever to place what about this one was so familiar to me but I finally got there! The oolong and pineapple combo in this one super, super strongly reminds me of Butiki’s Flowery Pineapple Oolong – but not the lovely fresh stuff but the stuff I hoarded after Butiki closed down for far too long that then lost the sweetness and robustness of the pineapple and tasted ridiculously floral/perfume-y/soapy.

Sorry, I wanted to like this one so badly, especially because the dry leaf smelled really lovely with sweet pineapple and strawberry notes. It’s just too soapy to me though, without nearly enough fruit notes. I don’t taste the mango or strawberry at all, just the pineapple and it’s not enough to redeem the rest.

Blarg.

Fallen slightly behind on logging, but I can do this! Haha.

Another one of my new teas tonight, and one I was pretty excited about, since I generally enjoy flavoured oolongs. This one’s pretty tasty, with a nice fruitiness (pineapple is the strongest; I’m not sure I really taste any strawberry) and a bit of oolong finish. It’s reminiscent of Lupicia’s fruity oolongs (of which I believe they may have all three of these flavours, separately?) I would have preferred a bit more oolong flavour here; I’m not sure if it’s the specific base tea used or perhaps I could have steeped it a little longer. Either way, it’s tasty and refreshing.

Oolongs, particularly flavored oolongs, are quite tricky for me, so I didn’t have high hopes. Truthfully, I only ordered it because there was mango in the blend. LOL I stopped after my second re-steep, but this was a surprisingly nice fruity oolong. The first steep was bit mineral-y. The first re-steep yielded the best flavor – smooth oolong base and lots of lovely, juicy fruit notes. I was concerned about the pineapple because that doesn’t always work for me, but the combination of pineapple, mango, and strawberry was really quite nice. By the second re-steep the freeze-dried fruits had lost most of their punch, so I gave up the ghost. All in all, not a bad lil’ blend.

I snuck this one out of VariaTEA’s bag of goodies because she encouraged me to drink her teas! I really wanted to see how this one turned out. I still very much miss Stacy’s pineapple oolong, as it’s one of the best pairings with a green oolong that i can imagine. Lucipicia’s version is also nice but not as “juicy” from what i remember. This one is mostly pineapple – which suits me just fine, but i do get a sense of the mango coming through. Really enjoyed this one today while spending some time relaxing and reading.

This is this week’s Tea of the Week. I’m currently on my second infusion of the leaves I first infused about an hour ago. The second infusion is probably my favorite steep of this particular tea so I highly recommend a resteep on these leaves! The flavor of both the Oolong and the fruit has mellowed somewhat – and it’s just soft and sweet and really quite nice. Smooth and silky.
