Taster’s Review:

This Cozy Caramel Oolong from Della Terra Teas offers me two of my favorite tastes:  Oolong tea and caramel.  How could I resist?

Answer:  I can’t.  This is so yummy.

The Oolong tea is a darker Oolong, and it brings a sweet and toasted nut flavor to the cup.  The roasty-toasty notes accentuate the delectable notes of caramel perfectly.  I can taste a hint of burnt sugar like flavor in the background, and this elevates the caramel tones, giving them some dimension.

The Oolong has a rich, creamy texture but it isn’t overwhelming.  That is to say, it doesn’t inundate the palate with that sort of creaminess that might otherwise obscure the nuanced flavors of the caramel.  There is a lot of complexity to this cup, and you want to enjoy each and every layer of flavor!

When it come to Oolong teas, I generally prefer them to be “pure” or unadulterated with flavor because Oolong is such a flavorful experience on its own and no additional flavor is really necessary.  However, I have enjoyed many different flavored Oolong teas, and of those that I’ve enjoyed, I’d have to say that this might be one of the very best.

This should be a must try for those of you who love caramel, or the Oolong enthusiast who is looking for something just a little different!  This one resteeps really well too – the caramel flavor subdues somewhat, but the second infusion is still very flavorful!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
