Additional Information

  • Description

    We're usually purists when it comes to oolong, but this floral and fruity blend is a celebration of everything we love about the tea's distinctive taste. Vibrant flavours of passionfruit highlight the roasted, nutty notes of the leaf, while pieces of papaya, strawberry and pineapple create layered shades of sweetness. We've finished the blend with a shower of orange marigold petals for a beautiful infusion. A tea to sip on balmy summer evenings.

  • Ingredients

    Oolong Tea, 5% Pineapple Pieces (pineapple, sugar), 5% Papaya Pieces (papaya, sugar), Flavourings, 1% Strawberry Pieces, Marigold Flowers

    Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

    By Amy from Bristol on 06/29/2019
    Really light and refreshing tea. Slightly sweeter then I expected but lovely for a hot summers day.
    Just right for a summers day.
     
    By Sue from Sunderland on 06/22/2019
    This is a beautiful tea. Quite a strong fruity smell when being brewed but the flavour is actually very light. Very refreshing and just right for a hot summers day sitting in the garden. I will definitely buy this one again
    Smell sensation
     
    By Mylee from Stoke-On-Trent on 06/09/2019
    The first thing that's hits you is the intense smell, it's amazing! Was initially concerned that the taste would be too intense but it has a subtleness that refreshes without being too overpowering. Delicious, certainly found a new one to add to my collection!!!!

    Gentle, subtly flavoured tea
     
    By Simon from Nottingham on 04/23/2019
    Very pleasant, gentle and refreshing. A nice fruitiness to counter the more bitter oolong flavour. Very enjoyable!

    Wonderful
     
    By Lewis from Stockport on 04/21/2019
    Wonderful mix of oolong tea with a pinch of peach and a lovely hint of strawberry making it a lovely drink on a hot summers afternoon
    Wonderful, subtle fruity tea
     
    By RuthDonev from Nottingham on 04/16/2019
    I was surprised at how subtle the fruity flavour was as papaya is often very overpowering. Due to the subtlety the flavour of the oolong shines though and is complimented by the fruit instead of playing second fiddle. Love it, as did my guests!
    Rich peachy taste
     
    By Gabi from Manchester on 04/06/2019
    Perfect oolong tea with a subtle hint of peachiness. The aroma is dreamy!

    Received great advice in your Glasgow store and made this purchase. Subtly fruity oolong tastes great with mainly the oolong coming through. Only need half a tea spoon for one cup.

    Oolong Surprise
     
    By NeneP from Matlock on 07/15/2019
    A lovely refreshing tea with a gorgeous scent. The fruit pieces really came through in the tea for me although a little after taste makes me think I brewed for too long with an in-cup infuser so I'll be brewing for less time next time :)
    Tropical delight
     
    By Laura from Nottingham on 07/01/2019
    Beautiful summer tea. Not overpowering but the taste of pineapple definitely shone through.
    Refreshing
     
    By Katya from Nottingham on 06/24/2019
    Slightly sweet, I tried this both warm and as an ice tea as I usually do and found it pleasant. You also only need a little bit of it compared to other blends, so in that regard it will last you a long time. Just be careful not to overbrew as it can be a bit too bitter - as I learned the hard way. I had left one cup an embarrassingly long time however, so as long as you follow the recommended brewing time, this is a lovely tea.
    Refreshing
     
    By Hannah from Nottingham on 06/21/2019
    Refreshing and light, but strong enough to taste. Very enjoyable

    By Jenny from Nottingham on 06/14/2019
    Fruit flavours complement the oolong taste pretty well. Very refreshing.
    Fruity and balanced
     
    By Greg from Birmingham on 06/08/2019
    I'm not usually a fan of Oolong teas but the fruitiness of this tea balanced nicely with the Oolong flavours.
    Fruity
     
    By Jasmatty from Colchester on 04/26/2019
    Enjoyed this tea which I received as a sample from the Ipswich store. It has a subtle fruitiness, would be refreshing on a warm day. Would definitely purchase in the future.
    Jammy and fresh
     
    By IanB from Reading on 04/23/2019
    As a rule I am less keen on flavoured teas but this one is a real fruity surprise. It brewed within a few minutes, wafting an enticing aroma of fruit and jam around the kitchen. This was evident in the taste - almost jam roly poly or other traditional fruit puddings. No bitterness, no aftertaste. Lovely.
    Very fruity
     
    By Hithfee from Lancashire on 04/16/2019
    Lots of aromatic fruit flavours coming through. Really enjoyed this tea, very refreshing.
    Not Bad
     
    By Grace from Nottingham on 04/16/2019
    Fruity and refreshing, not 100% sure it's my cup of tea but definitely one that could grow on me.

    Best oolong out there. Perfectly light.
    Unnecessary flavourings
     
    By Peta from Dunstable on 07/13/2019
    I usually drink pure flower/leaf/bark teas rather than this sample that has somewhere between 5% and 1% 'flavouring' as I like to know what I'm drinking; why they can't use pure ingredients I don't know.

    A light and refreshing tea but would not buy because of the flavouring.

Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Oolong

Poised between black and green tea, oolongs are semi-oxidised, bringing them part of the way towards a fully oxidised black tea before arresting the process with heat. This allows for a huge range of flavours: so-called "jade oolongs" are closer to green tea, while darker oolongs like Big Red Robe are rich with autumnal, nutty flavours and a roasted aroma.
