Prince of Peace Oolong Tea. . . .

Let me start by saying that I am very skeptical.

This is the first straight oolong I’ve had that is in a tea bag. Not only that but the leaves are all crushed. It’s a tea bag so I know that is to be expected but still sad to see.

For those who drink a lot of bagged tea I can see this as something above say Lipton or Bigelow but still nothing above any loose leaf companies. Surprisingly the taste is not as bad as I thought it would be. It is an earthy oolong. Nutty and oaky in smell. Roasted nuts and wet forest floor are the predominate flavors.

Overall not that bad but if steeped loose I bet it would reveal flavors that are even better.


Here’s the scoop!

Thoughts from our Sister regarding Fong Mong’s Oolong-Tan Xiang

Hints of chocolate and roasted nuts entertain your nose when you first open the package containing the tea. Beautiful, tightly rolled leaves along with twigs make this an interesting tea.

This tea roasted over charcoals but does not contain heavy notes from this process. Some of the charcoal notes can be found in the aftertaste but otherwise I find some slight hints of very dark chocolate, chestnuts, and earth for longer infusions.

In shorter infusions it is sweeter with some honey notes. . .  The wet leaves definitely retain the charcoal smell but not in a heavy obnoxious way.

If you aren’t familiar with Fong Mong Tea, we encourage you to check out their wide variety of teas and all of the amazing information they offer tea enthusiasts.  Suffice it to say, we adore Fong Mong Tea Shop!

Tan Xiang Wulong, the hand-plucked leaves of Dong Ding Oolong are grown in the Dong Ding region of Taiwan at the elevation of 740 meters. At this elevation, the leaves absorb moisture from the surrounding fog and clouds every morning and afternoon which is ideal for Oolong plants. Due to the unique geographic location and stringent selection of leaves, this is the finest Dong Ding Oolong from the Dong Ding estate.

Strawberry Rush from The Love Tea Company. . . .

Welcome to summer this tea screams as it tumbles down your throat.  . .

The hot weather sensations begin with the liquid. Clear rose in color with hints of a sunset orange.

This tea has hibiscus in it so one must be mindful of the steeping time. In order to full appreciate the summery strawberry flavors steep 2 – 2.5 minutes.

Sensations of fresh strawberries intertwine nicely with the crisp grassy green tea notes.

Once you hit the three minute mark the hibiscus takes over like Japanese beetles on a bean plant. . . . .so this tea is for those who love a tart strawberry tea with a grassy note. Definitely one that needs to be enjoyed in the summer or to brighten up ones palate since winter time is typically a heavy spiced tea season.

Description

It’s hard to keep this one in stock, teens and tweens love it, and it’s so much better than soda.   It’s a Brilliant Blend of herbal and fruit that evokes strawberry fields.  It is an organic green tea that is a simple pleasure with complex ingredients – green tea, with papaya, apple, orange and strawberry pieces, rosehip, calendula petals and natural strawberry flavors.  This blend is great hot or cold, but our preference is cold.   Blend several pots, keep it refridgerated and serve over ice with a fresh strawberry on the side.   The kids can take part in the mission on this one.  Make sure they #sharethelove with their friends.

Kumquat Cheesecake from 52Teas. . . . . .

One can always count on 52 teas for their unique blends.

This is a winner and needs to actually be made into cheesecake as it would be delicious. They did a wonderful job of capturing the kumquat flavor without any of the bitterness that can be found in the rind. Fruity with hints of citrus and cream.

The honey bush blends perfectly with the aforementioned flavors like a selfish ninja. You know it’s there but it won’t truly show. The liquid is a beautiful color.

When you brew be sure to use something clear. The rose color is quite a delight.
