This is such a heavenly tangerine infused tea.

Its a dried tangerine peel with oolong blend. The dry blend notes smell clearly of sweet, dried citrus. When steeped, the citrus flavour reminds me of candied orange pieces, that with some floral-ness of the oolong combines nicely for a fruit-forward floral tea.

When steeped a second time, the citrus is definitely more muted, but the oolong still brews up wonderfully. Didn’t get the chance to try a 3rd infusion (tea sampling party was the occasion here) but I got a small sample to try out at home and will report that back in a later tealog.

The colour is so pretty as well, a golden orange clear liquor.

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Orange, Orange Zest, Tangy

finding myself in hot water again and again…

I grew up in a tea drinking culture, but my parents were seriously hung up on jasmine tea and oolong tea, so I never really had much exposure to other teas. My horizons expanded when I moved to Japan and discovered genmaicha (roasted rice tea aka popcorn tea). after that, I discovered black teas, red teas, and flavoured teas, how different teas could be by the region, processing methods, water used.

Now I can’t get enough of it!

I experiment with different teas, blending them sometimes to see what the outcome would be. I find my tastes to be quite diverse, but run away from the more floral side of things. Tie Kwan Yin is probably the only one that most people seem to enjoy, that I don’t. Otherwise I am game for most teas. Fruity? love it. Smoky? Mmm. Earthy? bring it on! Light and vegetal? keep pouring!
