i normally love oolong tea, but this one I did not particularly enjoy.
It tasted extremely vegetal, like the way the water in a can of creamed corn smells.
I also made some iced, and it moderately tasted better iced in my opinion, it made the tea taste more fresh and green and less like corn water.

I actually really love this tea iced. I was pleasantly surprised by how much it tasted like cotton candy! There was a mild aftertaste of mango but honestly “cotton candy rooibos” pretty much describes the flavor. If you like cotton candy as much as I do you will also probably enjoy this.
It is not good re-steeped more than once though.

The tea is really weak in flavor. I tried re-steeping it with more tea, but the flavour was still very mildly nutty. I actually tasted stronger apple notes than nut ones. I liked it more once I added it to some black tea but overall this tea is just very unflavourful and i would not recommend it when there are other desserty tea blends out there that pack more of a punch.

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

This is my favourite tea! I love the vanilla flavor with floral notes. It smells amazing, and the smell seems to linger around the area pleasantly. I like to brew this when I have company because you can resteep it over and over and the flavour doest fade much, and the creamy texture is usually mild enough for even non-tea drinkers to enjoy. My favourite way to drink it is iced with cream though- I drink it this way whenever I am craving an iced latte but dont want the caffeine or sugar. The cooler it is, the creamier and the more vanilla you taste in my opinion.

This was the tea that got me “into” tea. I love watching the petals unfold in my cup. I LOVE floral teas, and this one is not overpowering or soapy like some florals get. I like to put one bloom in my ceramic steeper mug and resteep it two or three times. The peach is very soft and subtle, along with a mild grassy taste, with some jasmine notes. Not a good tea if you like something strong, but good for relaxing with

This is one of my favourite teas. Its too bad that its seasonally available. I got it on sale and stocked up. This is my “study tea”; I put a whole pot on and sit for hours reading my textbooks and drinking this.
The taste is smooth and vegetal, with some metallic notes. You can resteep it, I resteep mine three or four times times usually over the course of the day. the metallic taste fades with steeping. Buttery/creamy texture in your mouth increases with steeping.
Also, this tea seems to blend very well with dessert-y teas. Its an expensive tea to blend, but it does seem to enhance the flavor of any herbal tea I have blended it with so far.
