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.
Oolong Tea, 5% Pineapple Pieces (pineapple, sugar), 5% Papaya Pieces (papaya, sugar), Flavourings, 1% Strawberry Pieces, Marigold Flowers
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

I felt so amazing all over my body! My life has changed since having this tea enter my life. I have 23 cups a day. Thank you Whittard for changing my life :)Gentle, subtly flavoured teaBy Simon from Nottingham on 04/23/2019Very pleasant, gentle and refreshing. A nice fruitiness to counter the more bitter oolong flavour. Very enjoyable!RefreshingBy Debz from Reading on 04/23/2019A fruity refreshing tea... Love this... Smells and tastes amazingWonderfulBy Lewis from Stockport on 04/21/2019Wonderful mix of oolong tea with a pinch of peach and a lovely hint of strawberry making it a lovely drink on a hot summers afternoonWonderful, subtle fruity teaBy RuthDonev from Nottingham on 04/16/2019I 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 tasteBy Gabi from Manchester on 04/06/2019Perfect oolong tea with a subtle hint of peachiness. The aroma is dreamy!Garden Party Oolongon 06/02/2018Absolutely gorgeous tea even got some to take on holiday with me.Garden Party Oolongon 01/18/2018Received 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.Garden Party Oolongon 01/18/2018Fabulous version of oolong tea the subtle fruit makes it more interesting. Excellent customer advice I'm your Glasgow storeOolong SurpriseBy NeneP from Matlock on 07/15/2019A 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 delightBy Laura from Nottingham on 07/01/2019Beautiful summer tea. Not overpowering but the taste of pineapple definitely shone through.RefreshingBy Katya from Nottingham on 06/24/2019Slightly 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.RefreshingBy Hannah from Nottingham on 06/21/2019Refreshing and light, but strong enough to taste. Very enjoyableGarden Party OolongBy Jenny from Nottingham on 06/14/2019Fruit flavours complement the oolong taste pretty well. Very refreshing.Fruity and balancedBy Greg from Birmingham on 06/08/2019I'm not usually a fan of Oolong teas but the fruitiness of this tea balanced nicely with the Oolong flavours.FruityBy Jasmatty from Colchester on 04/26/2019Enjoyed 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 freshBy IanB from Reading on 04/23/2019As 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 fruityBy Hithfee from Lancashire on 04/16/2019Lots of aromatic fruit flavours coming through. Really enjoyed this tea, very refreshing.Not BadBy Grace from Nottingham on 04/16/2019Fruity and refreshing, not 100% sure it's my cup of tea but definitely one that could grow on me.Garden Party Oolongon 04/21/2018Best oolong out there. Perfectly light.Unnecessary flavouringsBy Peta from Dunstable on 07/13/2019I 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.

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.
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.
