French Friday! This sample is courtesy of Dustin, thank you!
Woke up with a terrible migraine and just wanted to sleep (I’m sure my job is going to wail on me come next week for being out on a weekend-adjacent day… because I apparently have control over when my chronic migraine happens rolls eyes ) so this morning when I fed the cat, I dumped this in a cold brew bottle, stuck it in the fridge, and headed back into bed. It’s now noon and I’ve woken again, and hoping the tea is sufficently steeped over the last four hours.
The oolong base in this is a slightly roasty sort, which I wouldn’t have guessed from the leaf. The description from the company says it has “exotic fruit flavor” and pineapple, but I don’t really taste either. I taste the roasty base, which, cold brewed, is tasting a little nutty and graham biscuity, but the only flavor I can pick out aside from the base oolong is sort of a mild blood orange. It’s reminding me a bit of a choco-orange dessert in flavor, which I really have no complaints about.
The description sounded in the vein of a “tropical” flavor profile hense thinking it would be a good cold brew candidate. Ultimately that isn’t what I got, but I’m still enjoying this cold, roasty oolong during a snap heat wave.
Thanks for letting me try it!
