Orange blossom Oolong tea. Smells heavenly, amazing fresh orange aroma with a slight chestnut background. This is a wonderful large leaf Formosa Oolong from Taiwan layered with orange blossoms, natural oils and peel.
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is too fierce for this Oolong tea. So, for just-off the boil water ( 80c ), simply boil the kettle, let it sit for two to three minutes, then brew your tea, 2 - 4 mins, a little honey or sugar, no milk but perhaps a slice of orange. If you give it a minute to cool after steeping before drinking the flavours should really come through.The leaves are suitable for one re-steeping.
Oolong Tea, Orange Blossom, Natural Flavouring
The aroma of this tea is fabulous. It is a light and refreshing tea which I have found delightful on its own but also blended with Earl Grey. It gives the added but subtle taste of orange to the Earl Grey and a tea to enjoy in the afternoon.
The light fragrance and taste of orange is very refreshing. I drink tea without milk and so can really enjoy this mix hot or cold.
I only drink tea without milk, so the subtle orange flavour is great and it saves cutting up an orange or lemon and wondering what to do with the rest. A lighter option for times when a full flavoured black tea is too much, or for those who find Earl Grey too aromatic.
A brew I enjoy occasionally and enjoyed by my Wife morning, noon and night, winter, spring, autumn and winter.
The orange is stronger than I expected but still a delicious tea!
