Todd gave me one of the pre-sealed packages of this tea he got from his China trip. It is a sachet-style teabag and smells strongly of the artificial peach found in candy. As it steeps, I start to get some aroma notes of minerals, greens, butter, and baked apple.
The oolong was coming off quite strongly right after removing the teabag, but the peach starts to come forward and the flavors smooth out as the tea cools a bit. The oolong has a leafy vegetal flavor and is slightly buttery. The peach comes in about mid-sip and lingers in the aftertaste. It is definitely that artificial peach candy flavor, but not nearly as sweet. The apple note blinks a bit in the background, but is hard to pick up on.
It reminds me of a poor man’s version of Lupicia’s Momo Oolong Super Grade.
