I like it! These habanero infused teas from Pelican Tea frightened me at first because I was worried I might be a bit too wimpish for the heat, but, while they are WARM (and by warm I mean that there’s a really WARM heat that builds in the back of your mouth and down the throat … it’s hot but it’s a really good kind of ah-cha-cha kind of heat) and while these are warm the heat doesn’t overpower the other flavors and there’s an intriguing balance of flavors that kept me sipping. I liked it … these are different, truly unique and I like.
Spicy, and a nice roasty-toasty note from toasted rice and the Se Chung Oolong. A little bit smoky and I like the way the smoke and the toasty notes meld with the spice from the pepper. And then the mint comes through and it adds this little bit of cool to contrast with the heat. Nice!
Really, you gotta try these teas from Pelican! Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/05/31/revenant-oolong-tea-from-pelican-tea/
