My Camellia Sinensis order is here! It’s been a shite Monday thus far, so I feel like the stars aligned to deliver my teas today haha.

I was so excited to try this one and it does not disappoint! There are huge apricot chunks in the mix and they smell incredible!

I did a quick rinse of the leaves and then steeped it up midway between the recommended times and this tea is so tasty! The oolong stays in the background and doesn’t have that mineral taste that I’m not a fan of. The apricot is present and delightful and becomes more present as the tea cools. There appears a subtle floral flavour as the tea goes from lukewarm to cold.

The second steep is still quite flavourful as well!

1st steep 4.5 minutes
2nd steep 6 minutes

A really great cup and I would definitely order a full-size pouch of this tea!

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 30 sec 3 g 14 OZ / 414 ML

My order has not shipped yet but I think this is one of the 10 I picked out?? I’ve never had apricot in a tea (or if I have I don’t remember) and I enjoy that flavor and I enjoy oolong teas so apricot + oolong sounds right up my alley….

Bio

I live with my partner and our two bunnies: Callie and Ben, and two cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love straight and flavoured black teas and this is what I’m usually drinking.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs, whites, and subtly flavoured greens. Other teas I’m happy to try at least once!

Likes:
Raspberry, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, cacao/dark chocolate, honey, coconut, and chai spices. I’m open to other flavoured teas but they can’t be cloying or fake/candy like.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, flowers (rose and jasmine), and ginger (except in chai).

Flavours that can go either way:
Hibiscus, vanilla, and peach.
