The first sachet to try from my random Amazon impulse tea purchase! OSULLOC is a Korean company located in Jeju province, which is an island off of the south coast. A lot of their teas seem to have native ingredients blended in with locally produced tea. And the packaging is so pretty! So naturally, I couldn’t resist buying a sampler… https://www.instagram.com/p/CH_h3TYAqph/

The directions recommended 5 ounces of water per sachet? Which I promptly disregarded since the sachets looked normal size and used about 8 ounces of water as I usually do (although to be honest, I’ve never measured it and could be completely wrong in my estimate…). The packaging calls the tea “post-fermented”, which immediately made me think of puerh. However, the listing here calls it oolong and the leaves also resembled an oxidized oolong or black tea. The liquor is also quite light amber in color, so… Your guess is as good as mine.

I will say, this is a lovely tea. To be fair, I don’t get a lot from the base tea, perhaps a hint of autumn leaf? The tangerine flavor is lovely and relatively accurate in my opinion, with a nice bright zingy flavor that make me think of clementines. There’s also a very sweet floral note that reminds me strongly of osmanthus. It melds so well with the tangerine here, which is the most prominent at the beginning of the sip. The osmanthus note is mellow at first sip, but then grows and shines near the end. The aftertaste is a pleasant mix of acidic tangerine peel and sweet floral nectar.

Overall, I’m very happy with this one. It’s a lovely light and very aromatic tea that feels fancy and special. The tangerine flavor is great and reminds me of my beloved Kumquat from Lupicia. A great start to my OSULLOC experience! :)

woof, that sounds good!

It would be nice to taste the oolong a bit more perhaps, but otherwise it’s a very lovely and fragrant blend. :)

Come on… I want those tea bags now! They would be a blast in my collection.

I have an O’Sulloc Korean Wedding Tea that is years old and is still absolutely delicious. Can only imagine how the fresh stuff tastes!

Martin Bednář

If you want to swap, drop me a message. Although I think those were very expensive ones :o)

Cameron B.

@gmathis – That one is in my set as well, and to be honest I’m worried about it since it lists rose, which is not my favorite. :P

@Martin – Definitely more expensive than usual, but I felt it was worth a try. We definitely should do a swap, though perhaps next year would be better. :)

gmathis

I’ll watch for your Wedding Tea review…I don’t like heavily floral stuff, either, but my (again, old and decayed) version didn’t strike me as such. Putting it on the to-drink roster!

Cameron B. — I don’t mind; though would like those teas in :P

I had it at an O’Sulloc cafe, not knowing it was an oolong blend (I was expecting it to be green). It has zero sweeteners, yet has sweet fragrance from the tangerine peel and blossom. It leans more on the sweet and fragrant side than the pungent side like some citrus teas.

Second time trying this and it feels like the tangerine notes are less. I suspect its because this is a sample thats been stored in a ziploc bag. I really wish there was an easier way to store samples without losing their flavour. Might have to search for some small airtight tins or something, don’t want to start buying more airtight glass jars as they take up quite a bit of room and the smallest sizes at the dollar store are too large for a few grams of tea anyway.

Flavors: Candy, Orange

I use these for small samples and they’re awesome. Totally impermeable, so you don’t get any smells leaking or degradation that happens so fast in regular ziplock bags http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wholesale-Lot-of-95-Silver-tone-Ziplock-Packaging-Wrapping-Gift-Bags-Pouches-/350682101059?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160
