golden-moon-sugar-caramel-o.jpgApparently the name of this tea alone has appealed to other reviewers as much as it did to me. The aroma of the dry leaves was decadently sweet. I placed my normal amount of tea into my brewing mug and after adding the hot water, the leaves grew so much that I am sure I could have gotten by with less. That fact is good to remember as this particular blend seems a little pricey, so it is a plus that it requires less per cup. The sweetness to the aroma that was so apparent in the dry leaves unfortunately did not carry over to the brewed cup. Golden Moon states that this blend consists of premium quality green oolong leaves, infused with caramel and burnt sugar. I am quite fond of caramel and most anything including it ranks pretty high on my list. In the case of this blend though, the caramel is not nearly as prevalent as I would have preferred. The tea was slightly sweet, but this seemed to come entirely from the burnt sugar, along with the fact that most oolongs seem to have a natural sweetness to them on their own. I did notice a bitter aftertaste which was unusual.

I am normally quite fond of flavored oolongs, but I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as I had anticipated. For my taste, I would have preferred more caramel flavor and possibly less of the burnt sugar as the more I drank, I felt that the bitter aftertaste was coming from the burnt sugar. I do agree that the oolong leaves used in the blend did appear to be of good quality and the fact that a small amount of the leaves went a long way helps to justify the price of this blend. All in all, it was a pretty good cup that I certainly would find pleasant enough if offered again in the future, but it also won't be one that I rush out to purchase.
