A Special Tea Crafted for our 12 Teas of Christmas Box!

Our 8th Tea of Christmas & our 3rd Brand-New blend for our holiday box is this – our Winter Mint Oolong tea! It starts out with a lovely Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea & is blended with Wintergreen extract, Vanilla extract & spearmint leaves for a lovely minty, creamy taste that’s sure to please!

I went with the combination of wintergreen & spearmint rather than peppermint because I find that peppermint can be a bit more aggressive in flavor, and I wanted something softer for the Oolong. The Oolong offers a silky, sweet base, the mint is cool & refreshing and the vanilla is soft & creamy. It’s really quite a wonderful Oolong blend!

It’s also organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen free!

organic ingredients: oolong tea, spearmint leaves & natural flavors

The flavor here is so smooth and delicious. What a lovely mint, and the oolong complements it really well. It also made a super delicious second brew, heavier on the oolong than on the mint. It probably would have made a third, but I didn’t try. I wish I had!

I generally don’t care for mint, so I’ve been putting off trying this. But, I really enjoyed it! It’s mild and fresh, with a very clean finish. The mint was not overwhelming at all.

This tea was our 8th Tea of Christmas for 2019. A fairly simple recipe: Wintergreen essence, vanilla extract & spearmint leaves with a lovely green TieGuanYin. I had originally obtained this TieGuanYin to reblend the Maple Cheesecake TieGuanYin. However, after I tasted the TieGuanYin on its own as well as another Oolong I ordered at the same time (Qilan), I determined that the Qilan would taste better with the Maple Cheesecake flavors so I did a slight alteration to the Maple Cheesecake recipe which left me with some TieGuanYin that I didn’t have plans for – so I created this recipe to include in our 12 Teas of Christmas box.

I love the way it all turned out. The Maple Cheesecake Oolong is really good with the Qilan Oolong (I think I prefer it with the Qilan – it has a darker, roasted flavor that just works better with the maple notes) & this tastes simply amazing: it’s sweet, it’s creamy & there’s just enough crisp mint to it to give it a lovely winter-y kind of flavor.

I found myself wondering why I didn’t keep more of this tea to myself – but then, I remembered that I have a whole tea studio filled with tea.

Yummy yummy oolong!

As I’ve mentioned in other tasting notes this last few weeks, despite all the Covid-19 insanity going on right now I’m still commuting into work and working in the lab because it’s not possible for me to do my job from home long term. Well, today the QC Government announced a mandatory closure of non-essential businesses and a required three week quarantine for all QC citizens not working at an “essential business” or going to one (ex. dentists, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.)…

They announced this while I was work, and all three of us in the lab had a moment of solemness as we realized that probably means we’re going to be laid off for a few weeks. We’re still waiting for official confirmation whether or not we’ll be going into work during this mandatory quarantine/business shut down – there’s a saving grace possibility that we might stay open as one of the business categories that are allowed to operate is “Food Production – Beverage” and we MAY fall under that, especially because we supply tea for sale in grocery stores…

But it’s limbo now waiting to find out if I still have a job for the next few weeks.

This was the tea I turned to for comfort, when I needed something reliably really good to sip on during the awfully tense moment that stretched on the whole afternoon. So happy I have this in my at home and work stash; there wouldn’t have been much else I’d have wanted to steep up in that moment.

Still waiting to hear, so cross your fingers for me.

Fingers crossed. I hope everything works out for you.

Roswell Strange

Thank you! I just got the call – the three of us working in the lab are staying operational & being classed as essential services under the “Food Production – Beverage” category, so looks like I’m still employed. Breathing a huge sigh of relief now…

Oh this is so good to hear!!! What a relief! Please stay safe and be well.

Hope you will get through ok.. Seems to be lots of closings around here as well.

Martin Bednář

What a relief – great news indeed! Happy to hear that!

Leafhopper

That’s great news! I hope you don’t have to see too many people on your commute.
