I actually enjoy the light tartness of this tea. I find it refreshing and drink it when I’m thirsty, not when I’m craving strong oolong flavor. I won’t buy it again, but I’m enjoying it while I have it.

I made this about 3 minutes before I had to run out the door so I didnt get a chance to try it until I was at work. To be honest I wasnt expecting much from it since I read quite a few terrible reviews. I ordered 8 ounces since it was so cheap and figured if I hated it I could just give it to someone who did like it. That will not be happening. I really like this tea a lot. Its a little tart but still earthy flavored and its definitely a nice change. I’ll be trying this iced once this terribly cold weather breaks.
This tea was my introduction to oolong. At first smell, it’s fruity, but with the “earthy” oolong smell (kinda smells like dirt). When I got it home and brewed it, I wasn’t immediately impressed, it’s ok, but not amazing. I infused the same batch again and much more of the fruit flavor was brought out. I’m not too big on the fruity teas, but this is one of my favorites.
At first I thought a whole raspberry fell into my infuser, but then I realized raspberries weren’t on the ingredients list and that this was a yumberry. Maybe yumberries have way less flavor than raspberries. The color of the steep was a light pink, but maybe just because of the whole yumberry. I love oolong teas and this is a nice floral, yet grassy. If you buy this tea for the list of fruit (kiwi! peach! all those berries!), you will be disappointed. There is barely ANY fruit flavor here, just the flavor of the oolong. The oolong doesn’t have a scent either. And I tried to get more of the oolong in the infuser than the fruits, but it still ended up mostly fruit, yet tasting like mostly oolong. Glad this was on sale, because I wouldn’t have bought it otherwise. I really wanted to like this! If you’re looking for a fantastic oolong, try Butikiteas.com ..you can’t go wrong with them.
I forgot what I thought of this tea, but the first sip since then brought back those thoughts.
It is still a strange blend, the oolong tea still flowery and bright, the fruit giving it more brightness and a sweeter tone.
I am still at odds with this, as I prefer my oolong earthy.
This is weird. I think I taste a touch of hibiscus on the edges of my tongue. It isn’t overdone, but I still don’t appreciate it’s presence. After the hibby tang passes, there is a brief moment of an alkaline taste which is washed away by a fruity perfume like aftertaste. After the sip I’m left with a slight sour taste in my mouth. Even if I did like the flavors, the oolong base seems strange. The whole thing is unbalanced, which I have come to expect from the majority of Teavanna teas, but I keep trying them anyways when they pass by me in a traveling tea box.
Tastes like a weak strawberry candy with a hint of a light oolong in the background. It reminds me of the flavored oolong that I tried previously, but this tastes a bit more bitter, like the sour aftertaste of strawberry and the tea isn’t very prominent. The color was lighter than expected. I liked this well enough, but I definitely preferred the flavor of the Fig Rose that I had the night before.
