Fragrant and sweet, this lychee green oolong isn’t overwhelming, but IS however quite tasty. I know some are rather purist about flavored teas, and I’d venture to guess this isn’t for them. However, for those who like natural flavoring, this tastes like lychee. It’s refreshing in the mornings, and I bet it would taste wonderful iced.
I am still building my flavor palette for teas. The oolong flavor is understated, but noticeable if the tea cools, or if it steeps for two minutes. It is sold as loose leaf, and the rolled oolong leaves were not shredded or chopped in any way. If I were to hazard a guess, the tea used is a greener oolong that is mild in flavor and not too expensive, but not bottom of the barrel. Something, essentially, that would appeal to those who specifically like drinking sweet drinks.
I like drinking tea straight, and I like drinking tea blended or flavored.
