Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Kally Tea
This luscious treat begins with an exciting characteristic green Oolong. Then we’ve added marigold, safflowers and finished with tropical flavoring. The aromas and the tastes that unite in this tropical delight make you just want to…
“LIMBO!! How low can you go?” (Insert island music here…)

Oh wow! This is really yummy! The flavor of this Tropical Heaven Oolong from Kally Tea is intense! I love that while the tropical flavors are strong, I still taste the Oolong. It tastes sweet, fruity and creamy … and yes … heavenly!
The Oolong tea adds a touch of creaminess to the cup as well as a light vegetative tone and a very pleasant sweetness that enhances the sweetness of the tropical flavors. While Kally Tea does not go in to detail about which flavors are in this Tropical Heaven … I definitely taste pineapple. Perhaps some mango and/or papaya. My first sip, I noted a flavor that tasted remarkably like peach, although that could have been the Oolong as I often associate the fruity tones of an Oolong tea to be very peach-like. The fruit tones are very smooth and sweet. Only hints of tartness just to keep the palate’s interest piqued.
I love how smooth this cup of tea is. The fruit flavors are sweet and are washed in a creaminess that is absolutely delectable … it almost tastes like a flavored milk Oolong … that’s how creamy this tea is! It’s one of those teas that disappear from your cup so fast you wonder if someone has been drinking the tea out of your cup when you’re not looking! Before I knew it, my cup was empty, and I resteeped the leaves. The flavors are less intense with the second infusion, but still very present and absolutely delicious – this is definitely worth the second (and even a third!) infusion.
A really great flavored Oolong – a truly yummy cuppa!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
