type: oolong

origin: taiwan

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Fresh sugar cookies, anyone? For this Vanilla Oolong we start with a naturally sweet oolong from Taiwan. The warm dark sugar quality of vanilla bean adds a perfect flavor and texture element to this already complex tea. So, cookies? Well, that's just one of several sweet, sugary treats that came to mind when tasting this cup. Brown sugar and honey notes, smooth mouthfeel, lingering fragrance. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      this fits into the 'never met a tea i didn't like' category, very enjoyable

      I know it's the same flavoring, but I like this more than the vanilla black tea. I can't exactly describe why, but it seems less artificial on the oolong base than on the Ceylon.

      The aroma was that of a good quality marshmallow. Hot, the vanilla really came through. I did not care for it iced, though.

      I brewed this at a lower temp - probably about 185 rather than 212 - and it was really good. The vanilla flavor was perfect and I added a little sugar and a cinnamon stick to make this a perfect winter tea.

      I rally like this tea. It's simple, but has a good flavor. The vanilla is strong enough to be a distinguishable flavor without being overwhelming.

      1st steep 190F 4min; 2nd steep (vanilla was a bit weaker) 200F 5min

      The oolong tea is nice, very smooth. Almost no vanilla aroma or flavor though.

      Smell of vanilla is strong but the taste is subtle, sweet and so good! Good with a bit of honey.

      I found I couldn’t taste the vanilla as much, but I mixed this with my chocolate truffle to enhance the flavors in that tea.

      This is a fantastic tea. The almond and oolong work well together and it's flavor holds up for multiple steeps.

      This tea is exactly as it sounds--a nice quality oolong layered with strong vanilla flavors. A good hot cup!

      Really nice, smooth Oolong with a hint of vanilla to round it out.

      Very smooth, soft vanilla flavor. Almost creamy in a way. Super delicious.

      Nice vanilla flavor. I'd buy it again for sure. I like to add in other flavors though to give it more dimension.

    • 

      Smooth, light, and creamy--as all good oolong tea should be--with a gentle surge of vanilla extract lingering in the aftertaste. A calming, comforting tea that will give you that little coax of energy you might be needing in the afternoon. Don't forget your favorite sugar cookies on the side!

      The vanilla smell and taste are pretty subtle. It doesn't taste bad, it just doesn't particularly taste like vanilla

      This is a great rainy day tea, love the vanilla flavor.

      I like vanilla and this tea hits the spot on a cold dreary day. Just the right about of vanilla flavor. Great tea.

      I know it's basic, but I love vanilla. Simple, low-key, and tasty. This is a great tea.
