This is my third try with this tea, and I’m giving it a not great score (76) because I really do seem to find it underwhelming considering how interesting the ingredients are. And yet, I have a feeling I’ll be increasing the rating later on… let’s see if I’m correct.

I still get the perfectly nice oolong base here, though I also have that bit of extra ‘heaviness’ that I seem to get from flavoured greenish oolongs when compared to just flavoured greens. (Not sure how else to describe it…) I also still get the slight sourness of I think rhubarb. But then I noticed a rather distinct lilac flavour all of a sudden in the middle of drinking this cup – or, at least, what I’d imagine lilac would taste like based on its smell. And I love the smell of lilac, so that was lovely, but then it kind of went away again. A bit of a shy note? Still smells like lilac, though, and something else… maybe a bit of that raspberry? I’m really not sure. But I think something vaguely sweetish. Will have to keep playing with this tea and see what happens.

One interesting this about this one – I have a lot of trouble getting it into a spoon in order to measure it. It has these rather firm, very long and thinly twisted leaves, which just doesn’t like my Perfect Tea Spoon… or any spoon, really. I wonder what kind of oolong it is.
