Do the twist

If you like Tie Kwan Yin, you’ll love this dark and unique twist on the classic. Grown on a third generation, family-owned garden in the Shire Highlands of Malawi in Africa, this rich oolong is inspired by the teas of Taiwan. Each leaf is hand-plucked and twisted by an amazing team of 15 tea-crafting local women. The result? A beautiful silver-tipped oolong with a uniquely earthy, toasty flavour. We loved it so much, we bought the entire production and rushed it to our shelves the moment it was ready. Extremely limited edition – and one of a kind!

I really enjoyed this cuppa last night with our green curry, but at the end of the day, I don’t think I’d reach for it. I’ll leave it for more discerning palates.

Made a pot of this to go with the Thai green curry I made for dinner. Overall I would describe this tea as . . . inoffensive. It has a mild flavor, just grassy enough to distinguish it from a straight black. Not terrible. Not in any way memorable.

Day #10 of tea!

Hurrah, finally a new one. A plain oolong, at that. I don’t get to have these very often. This one’s good, I have to say. Not my favourite (and I still like plain black teas better), but there’s a bit of a fruity taste with this, which I wasn’t expecting. Of course, it’s limited edition, so I shouldn’t get used to it, haha.

At first sip, sweet and somewhat fruity. Then deeper into the cup, this tea has a contrasting earthy flavor. Interesting, but not for me.

Interesting…I’ll have to try this one. Love all kinds of oolong.
