I’ve been drinking this one every day at work for a week or so now, and I’m more pleased with it than I expected to be. Oolongs aren’t usually my favourite thing, but this one is very much like a light black tea, with just a touch of roastiness in the mid-sip. The orange flavouring is pretty natural-tasting, neither too sharp nor too sweet. Thankfully, there’s very little floral.
I bought this one on holiday two years ago, so it’s about time it saw the light of day. I’ve got so lazy in recent months that I’m basically just resteeping a generous teaspoon all day. The orange flavour departs around the third steep, but the light oolong that’s left behind is very palatable – no fuss, easy to drink, and not a tea I really have to pay attention to. That seems to suit my mood at the moment. I know it’s not like me, though, and I hope that one day soon I start to feel more like myself again.
