I purchased this when I stumbled across the shop while I was on vacation. The shop itself has a huge variety and I really recommend a tea lover check it out.
I was recommended this tea by the shop owner, who suggested it was their favourite oolong. When I saw there was licorice powder involved in the process I was not expecting to enjoy it, but you really cannot taste licorice at all.
The tea itself is sweet, metallic, and earthy. It is a little mild for an oolong, and does not have much of the grassy/floral notes that a lot of oolongs tend to have. There is definitely a dessert-like quality to this tea.
I was most surprised by the fact that I liked the Blue Spring tea much more iced than I did hot. Cold, the flavour feels like it has more complexity and dimensions of sweetness. It seems to linger a bit longer in the mouth as well.
It is also especially good with a splash of cream.
