Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Harlow Tea Co
Do you love peppermint, well I hope so! This tea gives a kick of peppermint that lingers long after that last sip is taken! Oolong has long, pun intended, been known as an all around pleasing tea for those who may find green tea too bitter and black tea too strong. Love both, then oolong is a perfect combination of the two!
Oo’ Peppermint offers hints of almond and is balanced with pieces of vanilla bean. You may even see some vanilla bean seeds in your tea!

Earlier in the month, I discovered Harlow Tea Co, an Etsy Tea shop. So far, I have been incredibly impressed by their attention to crisp, defined, well blended teas.
Oo’ Peppermint is a blended oolong, peppermint, almond, and vanilla flavors. I can’t say I’ve ever had an oolong flavored tea like this one before.
Brewed up by the parameters provided on the package, I was anxious to check this oolong out. First sip in and this tea hit the spot! This journey starts off with fresh crisp peppermint notes followed up with a nutty sweetness that does an excellent job of providing a touch of complexity to the tea. Simple subtle oolong hints are noticeable but really just lay the ground work for the rest of the flavors to play with.
Rich and full of flavor is how I would describe this blend. This tea is simple but so robust. I’m three infusions in and still loving the uniqueness this blend is offering. I’m really digging this combo of flavors. Another winner from Harlow Tea Co!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
