Ooooh a wuyi oolong flavored with plum!
Gosh, it was hard to do my usual thang and review a tea from my collection. The travelling tea box is in my possession and I want to explore it more drinking random teas.
Anyways, Plum Oolong was a bit of a surprise – I was expecting something tart and hibiscusy, similar to other plum teas I’ve tried. The wuyi base works quite well adding some complexities of nutty and roast plus creamyness in the resteep. The plum hits as an aftertaste with a slight floraly note.
The plum flavor is okay. It seems on the flat/artificial side, but I still enjoyed it.
Iced, plum oolong is a different animal – more plummy with honey notes!
