I’m always in the market for a stevia-free oolong blend, and Tangerine Turmeric sounded right up my alley. Unfortunately, I think the chunkiness of this blend hinders its ability to perform well. This particular cup was incredibly tart and tangy, tasting mostly of citrus; lemon then tangerine. The ginger appears alongside the turmeric towards the tail end of the sip. (My chronic heartburn can confirm its presence.) There’s a smidgen of mint that appears at the end as well, but it’s very slight.
I appreciate that there’s zero bitterness or astringency, but this blend feels more like a lemon ginger tisane, and less like an oolong blend. Ultimately, Tangerine Turmeric was a miss for me, but I will keep experimenting with the remainder of my 50g to see if I can yield better cups.
