Review of Todays Special Organic Ooo-long Tea With Plum (Oolong)

6 of 104 of 53 of 563 of 100

Oooh, now this is an interesting tea. I wouldn't be in the right mood for it all the time, but when you need just a hint of fruitness or sweetness it's just about right. The scent is quite pleasant--it reminds me of a plum wine or even sake. It seems that oolong was a pretty good choice to blend with plum. There must be some unwaked memory inspired by the scent because it makes me think of my great aunt or a general grandparently aroma--but in a good, comforting way. Very interesting.

I brewed this at work (as I tend to do bagged teas), so I can't give many details on the preparation other than to say it involved filtered hot water and a couple minutes of steeping.

Update: By the second brewing I did sense myself getting tired of the flavor. So again, you really have to be in the right mood for this one.
