From Lupicia

Taiwanese oolong tea with sweet and sour passion fruit scent is topped with red and yellow petals inspired by fruits.
The refreshing flavor reminiscent of the southern country is also good for iced tea.

The refreshing Taiwanese oolong tea is combined with the gorgeous sweet and sour passion fruit scent to create a fruit oolong tea that is perfect for summer. The red safflower topping and yellow marigold remind us of tropical fruits. Recommended for iced tea.

First thing I noticed the the very prominent fruit scent. It smells more “tropical” than just passionfruit, but is very pleasant- not a chemical type smell.

The leaves are tightly furled with some flower petals added, very nice quality. This one took a long time to unfurl, about 9 minutes. I kept tasting every minute or so after 5:00, but it was too weak. It seems too long, but 8-10 minutes was my sweet spot.

The taste is of an astringent tropical fruit over a mellow, slightly grassy oolong base. The astringent fruit flavour and oolong work well here to make a lovely, refreshing cup. I get in moods where I crave oolong, and this and their Peach version are both great. Not fussy to brew but very high-quality. They didn’t cut corners on this one- all the elements are top notch.

Lupicia recommends this as iced tea, but I feel the oolong quality would not shine through cold brewed. Personally, I find chilling a hot cup too much trouble, so I’ll keep drinking it hot.

Lupicia has the best fruity oolongs! I haven’t tried this one yet since it’s not sold on the US site. One of these days I’ll break down and order from Japan or Australia… :P

I always grab it when I go to Japan, not sure why they don’t offer it on the US site!
