While in Germany last month I bought some more tea. I mainly bought oolong teas, and tonight I tried the Orangen Oolong that I bought.
I decided in the title of the post to use the German spelling of tea. I am sure that you can figure out that Orangen is orange 🙂
When I opened the bag there was a wonderful orange smell. It brought back the memory of smelling the tea while in the store and wanting to try it.
You can tell that it is an oolong with a higher oxidation by the shape of the leaves.
There was also a very nice orange aroma as I poured the water into the infuser.
The tea itself is really nice. It has a definite citrus taste and has a nice smooth mouth feel. I had to have a second cup right away as it was really good.
It will be interesting to see how long the orange flavor persists with multiple infusions. With flavored teas the taste can change fairly quickly depending on how the flavor is added.
I have a few more oolong teas from Tea Gschwendner to try. I hopefully will get to them soon 🙂
Have you ever tried an orange flavored tea?
