From Aftelier Perfumed Teas

The flavor and fragrance is based on the contrast between the syrupy vanilla sweetness of Peru balsam and the floral citrus of yellow mandarin, which marries beautifully with this full-bodied tea. This organic Wuyi oolong tea, with its slender tightly curled leaves, has a deep oxidized, roasted rice aroma and nutty flavor. Producing Wuyi Oolong tea is labor and time consuming: sun wilting, room wilting, shacking, dehydrating, roasting, rolling, cooling. The procedures occur repeatedly over days. Wuyi Oolong is even more aromatic after aging. Provides up to four infusions retaining their fragrance.

I’m so excited to try the newest offering of perfumed teas from Afterlier as I have enjoyed their previous offerings!

DRY – this smelled like: Mandarin Oranges, Balsam, Grapes, and Charcoal.
While Infusing – smelled like Balsam and charcoal

It infuses to a light brown/orange.

Post infusion it mostly smells like Balsam – roasty and masculine!

The taste is very different from the aroma! It tastes like mandarin then Balsam but you can still taste the proof that it’s an oolong! Fits the description to a TEA. The end sip has a hint of charcoal.

This is really great!

My favorite part is the mandarin notes! Not enough companies do mandarin pairings or flavorings in their teas and the ones you do (for the most part) should take notes from this company!

A delight!

This is Aftelier’s newest addition to their perfumed teas … and it is a delightful tea. The vanilla notes are incredible – so creamy and rich when combined with the deep roasted flavor of the Wuyi Oolong. The mandarin accents the tea and brightens the overall cup.

A work of art, this tea!
