This oolong tastes precisely like I tossed some honey into it — without having to count calories! Cool, man!
It goes perfectly with the raisin-infused breakfast cereal (Kelloggs Raisin Bran) I had. It’s SUCH a similar profile I’d think it was in-mouth carry-over from the cereal itself, but it’s not. There was an hour in between, and that hour included a tooth-brushing.
If you enjoy a wheaty, raisin-y, sweet sort of blend, I can recommend both Raisin Brand AND this tea. Neither of which I’d had before today,* but both of which I enjoyed.
* My in-laws have a completely different set of cereals in their house literally every time I come over. Usually people have a favorite cereal they stick to forever, but my in-laws just buy whatever strikes their fancy or whatever’s on sale.
It occurs to me that my tea selection is similar. I have whatever gets sent to me by this site, or whatever I happen to pick up on my Internet travels, and then I sip it down or trade it out. Every time people come over to my house, it’s a different collection to choose from. I don’t know if this is fun or frustrating for my guests. Sometimes I go over to my in-laws’ and there’s nothing I want in the cabinet and I get unreasonably frustrated. But other times it’s a cornucopia of untried, delicious-sounding flake varieties.
They could probably start a blog like this BUT ABOUT CEREAL.
Anyway, this tea is a winner, so if you’re wandering around Tea Swan (formerly Lochan) throw it in the basket.
