I thought I reviewed this already, but I can’t seem to find it. Steepster really needs to improve its search function. .
Anyway, this is a sipdown. I bought this for a friend from The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Hawaii and she gave me a few of her sachets to try. I love oolongs and I love jasmine, so this was a must-try.
The oolong base is very green (probably some sort of Jade oolong such as Ali shan), but has natural floral and fruity notes. Specifically, I can pick out peach and papaya. It is a bit buttery, thick, and with some natural sweetness at the beginning of the sip. This was a great base to pair with the jasmine. If you use sachets and like jasmine teas, this is a great tea iced or hot. The sachet is big and gives the oolong a lot of room to expand.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Fruity, Jasmine, Peach, Sweet
