Review of Peach Oolong (Peachy Oolong)

Ironically, this tea is significantly less peachy in aroma than a number of pure (unflavored) oolongs I've had, including Adagio's own Dancong Aria.

The aroma is mostly of roast, and the roast is quite heavy. The base oolong really reminds me a lot more of a Chinese oolong than one from Taiwan. A hint of woody tones, but less than typical for an oolong of such dark roast. Tangy flavor, with a bit of bitterness and astringency.

The flavoring is well-blended into this tea. In contrast to pure oolongs with a natural peachy aroma, this tea displays its peach flavoring mainly in the finish.

Adagio recommends brewing 5 minutes, but I found that 3 minutes yielded a cup more to my liking. The leaf was broken and the tea infused rather quickly.

Overall? Impressive for a fruit-flavored tea. Reasonable price too.
