Iron Buddha Oolong Tea from Oollo Tea is from the Pinlin, New Taipei, Taiwan Region and grown by the Wang Family. As you can see from the product description above this is the Spring 2014 Harvest and I must say that Iron Buddha Oolong Tea from Oollo Tea is a real winner! I think it’s one of my FAVORITE Iron Buddha’s thus far!
Iron Buddha Oolong Tea from Oollo Tea is incredibly (yet naturally) sweet, juicy, and delicious! If you like stone fruit – you may get a kick out of this one – because I agree with the description when it says it has notes of peach-like flavors floating about. This tea was reviewed by Sororitea Sisters (Anne) before and I thought it was time for me to write about it as well.
The roasted notes, for me, are more of an undertone. The peachy notes shine thru very nicely. I have noticed, however, that if you cold brew or ice this tea the roasted notes pop up more in the middle to end sip. This is also a nice tea for multiple infusions. Just another reason I’m a fan of Iron Buddha Oolong Tea from Oollo Tea.
