You warm up your tea vessels. You pour in the leaves and catch a first whiff of the aroma. The first sip. Suddenly you're at the beach with your beautiful and diverse group of friends, running towards the ocean, laughing and living in the moment. See those waves? Let's go surfing! Cut to the gang riding jet skis, chasing each other through the waves. Did I say surfing? Doesn't matter, we're having fun! Falling from a banana boat, swimming back towards the shore, squinting and covering your eyes from the sun, laughing. Time-lapse of a beautiful sunset. Sitting around a camp fire, animated chatter all around. Fade to black while the camera zooms out. Fade-in: "Gardenia Oolong - life filled to the brim". Music fade-out. Fin.
It's nice and refreshing to have this tea and I think it can become a daily one... I love it because it's not too strong and the flower tastes doesn't disappear after one steep.
I am giving this tea a new review. I'm not sure why my first cup wasn't what I expected. But I have to say I have had several more cups and thuis gardenia oolong has been all an more then I expected with each new cup. It is a sublime blending of flavors of both the natural floral of the oolong and the gardenia that seem to be layered as the taste of the cup opens in the mouth one moment it is a light ethereal floral oolong. And the next it is this amazingly light wonderful gardenia flavor that slowly fills the mouth and for me a slight silky buttery taste. It is Fantastic and very WELL DONE!
This tea makes a wonderful brew although for me it isn't as floral and gardenis scented as I expected. But the tea itself is quality oolong and brews a wonderfully satisfying tea
To be honest, I had never had Gardinia tea before. However, this tea totally convinced me that it was BRILLIANT. I loved the flovor, a soft hint of floral ragrance, subtle taste of the Oolong; it was like drinking morning dew dripping from the flower petals.
