A visually appealing blend of dark Oolong tea leaves, fruit chunks and rose petals.
The Oolong base is smooth. It has a buttery texture to it. Not so much a buttery taste as a texture, but some of that buttery translates to the flavor as well. This isn’t like a creamy or heavily “buttery” type of Oolong. Woodsy tones.
Mostly what I taste from this tea, though, is the fruit notes. Tropical fruit: passion fruit and mango! Sweet and nectar-like. I like that the flavors taste true to the fruit, not fake or artificial. These flavors meld well with the natural earthy/woodsy tones of the Oolong.
The aronia berries do impart some astringency to the cup but even so, the astringency is very mild. Not so much of a puckery sensation as a tarty note toward the tail that I can feel in my cheeks.
A nice little tropical getaway in a teacup.
