I picked this tea because I was curious about the elderflower character added to oolong…in nose the dry loose tea definitely promises, especially because the elderflower aroma is soft and delicate…this changes quite abruptly when the tea is brewed : here, the apple character comes fully through and in mouth the tea is sweet. Not bad, but the oolong character is completely lost to me, so this is primarily a fruit tea as far as I am concerned.

From Bruu´s website :
What it is? A Chinese Oolong and fruit blend.
Why we love it : Chinese Oolong Ti Kuan Yin and the delicate, characteristic notes of the elderflower is simply perfect.
Where it’s from : This oolong tea is a Chinese tea that is partly fermented during processing. Fertile soils, pure water and a pleasant climate combine to produce this perfect in-between tea. Combined with carefully selected autumn fruit and spring blossom from UK, this tea is fit for the Iron Goddess.
How our drink hits the senses : Sat dry in the container, natures sweetest smell in all her glory, with a wonderful earthy note from the Oolong. During the infusion process, this calming flavour makes this a sweet yet smooth experience for your mouth.
The taste journey : A late Spring walk through blossom and apple trees with your favourite person by your side.

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
