Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: David’s Tea
This blend of high-grown oolong is truly rejuvenating. It’s scented with lemon myrtle, jasmine and natural citrus essences, and the result is light, fresh and uplifting. Hot, it’s soothing and citrusy. Iced, it’s an unbelievable thirst quencher. And infused into vodka, it makes the world’s best martinis.

This Citron Oolong Tea from David’s Tea has a really nice medley of flavors. The citrus notes are soft (and I find that they intensify as the tea cools!) and the jasmine adds a lovely floral note to the cup.
In the first infusion, I find that the flavors are all pretty evenly balanced. I taste notes of jasmine, notes of lemon-y citrus, and the lush, vegetative notes of the Oolong tea. The taste is very refreshing, and I think I like this better iced than hot … although it’s quite good hot too.
The second infusion, I began to notice more of the Oolong notes. There is a light buttery note to the Oolong, soft and creamy, and this mingles with the lemon-y notes quite nicely, giving it a sweet note with just a hint of tart. The jasmine is softer than it was in the first cup, but it is still present.
Overall, a very pleasant Oolong blend. I served some to my daughter, and she also found it to be very enjoyable. It’s very smooth and relaxing to sip.
