From Aftelier Perfumed Teas

This oolong tea is grown in an atmosphere that enhances the naturally occuring GABA, a human enzyme that calms and relaxes. The ethereal hojary frankincense with balsamic notes and citrus undertones marries beautifully with this full bodied tea.

Somewhat floral-spicy but also some surprising citrus notes in there as the description mentions! This is one of the more gently perfumed Oolongs from this company but very good indeed! I really like this one! It has a sweet end sip on to the aftertaste! YUM!


How exciting to see this reviewed!! :)

I like this a lot. With my first couple of sips, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, but as I continue to sip on this, I am liking it more and more.

The frankincense has hints of spice and flower, and the Oolong gives this a pleasant sweetness. Quite lovely, actually. I like it a lot!

This is really quite lovely. Not overly perfumed, particularly if prepared in short steeps, and the frankincense meshes really well with the GABA oolong. Relaxing, sweet, and decadent.

This was wild. Frankincense for scenting tea was an idea I speculated about, but wow, I did not expect it to happen with a GABA. The results were interesting. Frankincense was the flavor throughout with a touch of char, smoke and citrus. This tea really reminds me that frankincense is from a tree like a dragonsblood tree, so it’s very resinous overall. Gong fu of course-15-10-25 sec so far.

Of the 3 samples I received, this one the only thing that intimidated me. I don’t think I’ve ever even smelled frankincense before, and I cant find word to describe it even now that I have. But you can definitely tell this was scented by a perfumer. The smells are quite intense! Even after brewed it smelled pretty intense to me. Thankfully the taste was milder.
This is not as scary as I was expecting. I didn’t add any sweetener, because this is almost more on the savory side of the tea spectrum. I sort of want to add a little salt and see what thats like.
This really is sort of balsamic tasting. I caved and added a touch of salt to the last half of my mug, and I like the result. Sort of brothy, and a very light sort of sense. The website says it can be resteeped 4 times so I’ll try that in a bit and see how it goes.
