Could Be Stronger

I expected a stronger or more pronounce flavor. The color was pale and the taste aligned with that. Perhaps more tea leaves?

Delicious smell; no flavor

I bought this tea the first time around and agree with many reviewers that the tea itself is largely flavorless. The smell of it is exquisite and hits right out of the box with lovely vanilla and sarsaparilla notes, yet hardly any of that translates to the palate. I’ve even tried using sipping spoons and taking big sniffs in before I drink since smell is a large component of taste, but it does just sit like slightly buttery warm water on the tongue. With the flavor profile it has and the powerful flavors of other Smith oolongs, I was expecting a lot more from this tea. Afraid it’s suitable only as potpourri.

Bland

I had really high hopes for this tea because who doesn’t love ice cream? Upon opening the bag, it smelled delicious. I brewed 3 cups for myself, my mother, and my aunt and we all thought we were drinking just hot water. My mother and my aunt who have been avid tea drinkers for 40+ years agreed this was one of the worst teas they’ve tasted. I thought I had brewed it incorrectly and tried at least 2 more times and the flavor was still the same. Thought I had received a faulty batch but customer service was great in sending me a new one. Brewed it again and tasted the same. I guess that’s just how it’s supposed to taste. Very underwhelming and disappointing purchase.

I was skeptical of the tea’s ingredients & description. Was I ever surprised!!? Glad I bought the amount I did since it’s sold out! I enjoyed it in my Spode Porcelain tea cup & saucer tea for one set! On my birthday!

Best oolong I've had!

The "ice cream" description is a bit misleading, but that's the only critique I can make! The tea is exceptionally smooth and with a little sweetener is an absolute delight to drink! I would completely recommend this tea!

Chamomile Petals

Egyptian Botanical

These white petals come from our favorite chamomile flowers, much of which are removed during sorting. For the petals that remain attached, we carefully hand-screen these blossoms at our facility. These petals fresh flavor add distinctive character to our White Petal blend.

Faiyum

Introduced to Egypt from Europe a half century ago, chamomile brings the joy of festive harvest to the oasis of Faiyum. Sourced from Central Egypt, the Nile provides ample water and fertile soil for the world’s finest tasting blossoms. Harvest season for these golden buds is January to April. 

Jin Xuan

Full Leaf Oolong Tea

This full leaf tea is a variety of oolong tea and popularly known as ‘Milk Oolong’. It originates from Taiwan and naturally tastes light and creamy, often compared to milk.

Taiwan

Taiwan is an island in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southeastern China. Mountains cover approximately two-thirds of the island mainly located in its interior. Its subtropical climate and fertile soils are suited for a variety of agricultural products and currently has nearly 50,000 acres of tea farms.

Milk Oolong

Sarsaparilla

Indian Botanical

Sarsaparilla root from India is unlike sarsaparilla from other origins. It has a taste and aroma that is vanilla-like and creamy, making it ideal for use in chai and blends with rooibos, or simply enjoying by itself. A climbing plant that grows throughout India, the root is dug, washed, peeled and sun dried. The thicker roots of the sarsaparilla plant make the best and most flavorful brew.

Nilgiri

Nilgiri translates to "blue mountain". It is a range of mountains that are part of the larger Western Ghats and are located in the states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala in Southern India. With over 24 peaks reaching higher than 2,000 meters, it made this area perfect for growing tea and other botanicals, along with providing the British in the Raj era respite during India's long hot summers.
