Drink Me: Adagio Teas, Almond Oolong
A few weeks ago I ordered a variety of samples from Adagio. One of the things I ordered was the Oolong Orchard sampler pack (4 teas, 2 ounces, $7). I was very excited to try and Almond Oolong in particular.
You can purchase the Almond Oolong in a few different sizes: a half ounce sample for $2 (makes approximately 5 cups of tea), 2 ounces for $6 or a full pound for $29.
The tea is pretty pure: it contains Taiwanese Oolong tea and natural almond flavor. When I opened the package it smelled SO good – like amaretto and marzipan, nutty and sweet.
After I brewed it the aroma was milder, but still definitely almond. The tea was sweet and nutty, very light and dessert-like. I would definitely recommend trying this one if you enjoy almond flavoring.
