This was quite a nice tea! I’m not sure I’m really a fan of milky oolong in general, though, so that might be why I wouldn’t count it among my favourites, though I did enjoy it for what it is. It definitely tastes just how you would expect, very melon-ey with that creamy aftertaste, so I would definitely recommend this to someone who enjoys milk oolong!

I really aliken the milky oolong to a lapsong that has been brewed through a bunch, with the melon it’s a cantaloupe rind mixed with papaya. I could never get enough of that papaya-y taste that makes it so exotic and for a seasoned green tea drinker its the perfect hongcha

This is a pleasant tropical Oolong and floral blend. The guava and melon are quite prominent both in the aroma and flavour of the tea. The floral notes from the tea flowers and sunflowers are more subtle in their presence. This tea came from Vancouver’s Tea festival in 2015 and I’m quite happy it’s quality hasn’t diminished since then. I’ve noticed it can be a bit vulnerable to over-steeping and high temperatures, the floral flavour can shift to an unbalanced bitterness. After experiencing this a couple of times though, I’ve been more attentive to it’s preparation and enjoyed the rest of the tin. This review accompanies what will soon be a sip-down. Usually I’m more prompt in my reviews, but better late than never.

First ever oolong tea I’ve tried. I think I’m ready for oolong now – or just for this one. So love the taste and smells good too.

ShakTea is a great little shop/tearoom located on south Main St. in Vancouver that I discovered on my most recent visit. They have nice munchies too (sweet and savory) if you’re looking for a light snack, though it’s a bit pricey.

Now this is a nice melon-flavoured tea – it’s sweet without being cloying or artificial-tasting (I’m looking at you Davids Tea). Using an oolong base instead of a more neutral white tea is an interesting twist and the one they use appears to be some sort of green oolong that has a pleasent smoothness combined with a lightly roasted flavour. Possibly one of the best melon teas I’ve tried yet.
