From PIPER & LEAF Artisan Tea Co.

Creamy nectar beginning. Burst of pineapple. Sweet citrus finish.

A persimmony plunge in creamy citrus paradise.

Winter’s demise invites the birth of Spring. Bravely rebuking the spring frost, fully-ripened, harvested, and dried local persimmons melt seamlessly into this palate-pleasing nectar, anchored by a delightfully milky oolong tea. Curled and twisted into small balls for hibernation, the brewed oolong unfurls with the sunshine into a tea so sweet, smooth, and refreshing you’ll want to take it for all your hibernation-ending needs. Say hello to the sun, to endless spring, to Capri Cream.

Ingredients: Milk Oolong Tea, Apples, Pineapple, Persimmons, Orange Rind, Lemon Rind, Chamomile, Lime Leaves, Spearmint, Lemon Oil, Natural Flavor.

Brewing Recommendations: Steep for 5min with hot water (180 degrees).

Happy National Pizza Day!

I’ve been working through what has been left of my little samplers from this company, and this was a milk oolong with some additions (including pineapple) so I saved it for today. I often get “buttery vegetable” notes from milk oolong, particularly spinach (one of my favorite pizza toppings), and the pineapple chunks in the blend are reminescent of another of my favorite toppings (yes, I’m one of those people).

A get a strong buttery milk oolong aroma from both the dried and steeped tea, as well as a fruity aroma from the steeped tea that wasn’t present for me in the dry leaf. It’s giving me a tropical vibe, but I don’t think I could place a specific aroma. Now that the tea has cooled enough to sip from my work thermos, I’m really digging the flavor! A warm and buttery milk oolong base, with a distinct pineapple flavor on the sip, which has just the slightest bit of tanginess to it from this citrusy undertone from the dried persimmon. There is a bit of a citrus zest aftertaste. Also a subtle but indistinct florality. It’s really enjoyable! Warm silky, buttery texture, fruity pineapple, and tangy citrus… doesn’t sound like it should work but it oddly comes together nicely.

This may be a minor thing, but I don’t like that the Piper & Leaf website claims this tea “includes dairy” because the leaf is “steamed with milk”… does this myth really have to continue to be circulated? (I mean, sure, from the flavor this is probably a flavored milk oolong, but my understanding is those flavorings still don’t include dairy? This “warning” seems entirely incorrect and unnecessary and would serve as nothing more than to drive Vegans away from a very nice tea…)

I’ve somehow never had pineapple in pizza, but I like it in curry, so I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it!
