almond oolong

type: oolong

origin: taiwan

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Combining savory almond with the bright, fruity-floral taste of Taiwanese oolong tea, our Almond Oolong is great on its own, as well as the perfect dessert complement. Smooth, clean and unroasted almond nutty aroma. Full, rounded body and sweet marzipan flavor. The only question now is, is it ok to have two desserts in one evening? Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Delicious. The almond flavor that adagio uses is so perfect, and it compliments the oolong flavor flawlessly. A real treat, another perfect dessert tea!

      I loved this tea. The almond complemented the oolong. I tried this both hot and iced. It was great both ways!

      This is delicious plain. With a little sweetener it tastes like an almond crossoint. With sweetener and vanilla almond milk like an almond torte pastry. Yum!

      It has a very strong almond smell when you open the bag, but is very smooth in the cup. It tastes like marzipan or cookies. I thought just a little sugar really made it, but my marzipan-loving husband preferred it unsweetened.

      Good almondy tea. The taste reminds me of cookies.

      pretty standard oolong. I like oolongs and keep several in my stash.

      Pretty decent nutty oolong, the almond is a nice flavor. By itself it’s a pretty okay tea, but it really shines when blended with others.

      I really like this tea. Nice almond flavor. I am really enjoying trying Adagio’s oolong teas. Really good with maple syrup.

      I got this as a sample, but i just didn't find that the almond came through for me. If it was mixed with other teas I can see it adding to the flavor profiles.

      Part of the Oolong sampler box, I found this one had a surprisingly strong almond flavoring smell. In combination with the oolong tea (formosa maybe?), I thought it was just OK.

      I got this one in the Orchard Oolong Sampler. Dry, it has a strong but nice marzipan type smell. I was glad that once I brewed it, the almond calmed down and was more of a subtle flavor with the oolong flavor being forward. I liked it enough, and tho I wouldn't reorder it, I would def recommend it to someone who loved almond flavored things.

      I wasn't a huge fan of the smell of the leaves, it was more bitter than I would've liked. But the tea tasted much sweeter than the smell suggested

      This taste like the milk oolong. It’s creamy and smooth. Goes well with milk/creamer

      I discovered through this tea that I don't like almond-flavored tea, so if you don't love the flavor this might not be the tea for you, but I gifted this to a friend who does enjoy it.

      A very good almond oolong. Strong almond flavor that was natural and not artificial like some almond teas.

      I am a big oolong fan to begin with, and I'd rate this right up top with milk oolong and vanilla oolong as a major fave!!🤩

      I wasn’t a fan. I didn’t even finish the cup. I’ve come to realize I’m not a big oolong fan

      I was skeptical at first because of how strong the tea smells in the container, but the flavor is beautifully delicate overall

      Solid tea, good alone or with vanilla creamer. Mild almond flavor is sweet.

      Mild almond taste. It isn't overpowering or overly complex like some teas can be, very enjoyable.

      Almond is a great combination with oolong, so smooth & warm

      Very strong for me. I do like it though, but I need to add something else to soften the flavor.

      This oolong is very strong, but it's nice and flavorful in a good way. The almond flavor is there and it blends well with the oolong tea. It's definitely not something I can drink every day, and I probably won't get it again. But it was nice to try as a treat.

      This tea is a nice treat. I love the Almond flavoring, it imparts a sweetness without sugar. It's great with a touch of almond milk.

      The smell of this tea when I first opened the bag was a little off putting but it actually tastes delicious once steeped, it is much milder than the initial aroma. I drank two cups in a row when I first tried it because I liked it so much!

      This is one of my husbands favorites! He is generally not a fan of really sweet things and this seems perfect for him. This is the one he always requests when we put in an order!

      This tea was overpowering in its sweetness - it was like drinking liquid marzipan.
