Peach Oolong from Adagio Teas

Leaf Type:  Oolong

Where to Buy:  Adagio Teas

Product Description:

The darker, more oxidized oolongs of Taiwan are known for having very lush, playful flavors. Deeply floral, honey and juicy, it’s not uncommon to have a lovely cup that’s almost like a succulent slice of peach. Why not let the tea play with some actual peaches? Our Peach Oolong is truly an inspired treat. Fragrant and sweet like a perfectly ripe fruit, with a smooth astringency and lingering floral aroma. So very harmonious, indeed. Please, be a peach – try this oolong!

Ingredients: oolong tea, natural peach flavor, apple pieces, marigold flowers, apricots

Taster’s Review:

Pairing peach flavor with dark Taiwanese Oolong tea seems a perfect match.  This tea provides proof – the beautiful peach tones are so well suited for the sweet, earthy Oolong tea in this cup.

The sip starts out with a strong note of peach with a background note that is slightly nutty and earthy.  The peach flavor is sweet and succulent.  About mid-sip, there is a hint of flower to the sip, and the nutty tones have developed as well.  The flavor is smooth and the texture is silky, and there is a pleasant aftertaste that reminds me of honeysuckle.

This tea is available loose leaf as well as part of the Sweet Medley collection.  I received it as part of the gift collection, and I was a little apprehensive about an Oolong in a sachet.  But there appeared to be plenty of room for the leaves to expand and release their flavor.  This would be a really convenient way to travel with Oolong tea!
