Drink Me: Arbor Teas, Organic Plum Oolong
Last week I decided to place an order with Arbor Teas. I was especially delighted that Arbor Teas offers sample sizes, which means I can buy several small selections to try. The first one I was excited about trying is the Organic Plum Oolong.
From the website, Organic Plum Oolong contains organic Chinese oolong tea, organic Indian black tea, organic schizandra berries, organic rosehips, organic hibiscus, organic currants, organic osthmanthus flowers, and natural plum flavor.
Organic Plum Oolong is available in a variety of sizes: sample for $3.50, 3oz for $12.50 and 9oz for $29.95.
When I first opened the package I got sort of a spicy berry aroma. As the tea brewed I got more of the oolong and black tea aromas. I really like oolong teas because they tend to be very smooth and mellow, but still contain a very full tea flavor. The tea itself was very light and sweet; I tasted the berries and the hibiscus. There was also a smokey overtone which I assume is from the Indian black tea. I enjoyed this blend, although I didn’t get as much of the plum I was wanting.
