So I recently placed an order with this company – I’ve been seeing them a lot on IG lately and I’ll be honest that the gorgeous marketing kind of got to me a little bit. It wasn’t exclusively the marketing – I mean the teas themselves also looked good. I liked the simplicity of the blends, that they were tea base forward, and in particular some of the oolong flavours they were offering really stood out to me. I tried to order as many of the flavours they carry as possible (they have build your own samplers) and I’d say I got about 90% of their selection – so I’ll definitely get a pretty good read.
This order just came in, so I’m only just starting to taste through them but so far I have been very impressed. The oolong base seems pretty high quality, and was very smooth, fresh and floral. The pineapple was sweet but not in a candy sort of way. More the way that really good, ripe pineapple actually tastes – minus any acidity. For a moment, it made me think of Butiki’s Flowery Pineapple Oolong (though this isn’t quite as floral) and that was a wild moment of nostalgia.
Yeah… Big fan of this very simple, well executed pineapple oolong.
