Drink Me: Tea Market, Lemon Basil Oolong.

Last time I went to the Tea Market, my friend and co-worker tried some of the Lemon Basil Oolong. She let me try a bit too, and I really liked it. So the second time back I purchased an ounce for myself.

From her menu, the Lemon Basil Oolong is a blend of dark leaf oolong, with the fruit and zest of lemon and a hint of savory basil.  She sells it for $4.55 per oz.

When I smelled the blend in the store, it smelled very light, and almost savory with the tang of the lemon rind and a bit of the basil.  Once brewed it definitely smelled lemony, with less of the basil scent.  I really like this one hot – it’s a great refreshing afternoon blend – but I also think I’d like to try it iced, particularly on a hot summer day. I’d definitely recommend it!
