Day 5: Roasted Oolong Tea

Flavor Highlights: This drink was not my ‘cup of tea’. The darker, richer earthy taste of tea was a bit too much for me. This tea is almost along the lines of coffee but with that subtle tea flavor. I feel I enjoyed the Teasia Oolong Tea as it is so adding a roasting to it did not enhance it for me.

Nonetheless, this is a tea I would prefer drinking on a hot day served cold with ice and milk and sugar paired with something sweet like a scone or cupcakes!

Day 3: Oolong Tea

Here’s my take on Teasia’s Oolong Tea.

Flavor Highlights: This tea has a woody flavor with a hint of fruity and nutty aftertaste. I like that I could drink this as is or with honey and lemon, but most of all how many different flavors I Get out of one sip.

I would recommend this tea with a salty afternoon snack like a some roasted peanuts or even a small bag of potato chips. I enjoyed the flavor as well as appreciated the smoothness of it.  I thought this was a perfect middle ground from too strong and too light. This is a definite favorite!

The next tea that I’m going to try is Jasmine Green Tea. I really love green tea so stay tuned for my take on Jasmine.

Don’t forget, if you’re not sure which teas to try, there are variety packs with 4 different flavors in each series!
