I’m going to sit on this one before giving it a rating – although it’s pretty tasty!
The passion fruit is a little lighter than in other Dammann Frères teas but there are a host of fruits and flavours it shares the stage with – some as yet to be determined (but I have 100g so lots of time to figure it out)! I think this green oolong is on the lightly roasted side – with darker gold broth. My brain translates this to the usual “ice cream cone” malt flavour of all roasted oolong teas; because of the flavouring though, that roast shifts and supports something interesting – lychee! As it cools, I get more mango too – the dried candied kind, I think. It’s neat.
