Taster’s Review:

The last couple of weeks have been crazy and the next week is going to be even more so – so it’s nice to have a tea like this Soul Good Organic Oolong from Tea Leaf Co. to help me collect myself and find a sense of calm.  Tea is delightful like that – I love how I can sip it and it helps to de-stress me.

And what a delightful tea this is!

Even though it’s not autumn or winter – I am enjoying this cup of “apple cider” tea.  It’s pleasantly sweet with a nice essence of apple and warm spices.  And even though these flavors are prominent, they don’t overwhelm the sweet Oolong tea which appears to be a Tie Guan Yin based on the little green pellets of tea that I saw when I was measuring out the tea.

And the flavor and texture suggests a Tie Guan Yin tea to me.  It’s sweet and has a soft, slightly creamy mouthfeel.  There’s a light, buttery flavor to the tea that melds quite beautifully with the notes of apple and the spices.

The ginger is really nice – it’s warm and peppery without being too spicy.  Generally when I think “apple cider,” I think of cinnamon flavor but I like that ginger is the star of this show – I’m really enjoying how nicely the apple and ginger taste together.

And the apple is wonderful here – it’s a strong flavor.  My own experience with tea blending has taught me that apple can be a difficult flavor to nail but Tea Leaf Co. has nailed it here!  It’s sweet and apple-y and authentic!  This tastes very true-to-the-fruit!

A really lovely tea – and while it does have a very autumnal flavor to it, this is something I can see myself enjoying year round!
