kalahariacitronoolongblue.jpgCitron Oolong Blue Tea is one of three offerings in Kalahari’s Energy Tea line. Ingredients include Organic Chinese Oolong Tea, Organic Eleuthro Root, Guarana, and Organic Bergamot Flavor.

Upon opening the packet to prepare my cup, the bergamot scent was extremely potent. This concerned me slightly as I’m not a huge fan of bergamot-flavored tea. I have found a select few that I enjoy, but they tend to be few and far between. From most of my experiences, bergamot seems to overpower the tea, leaving only the distinctive citrus flavor. Kalahari’s Citron Oolong Blue Tea seems to fit solidly into this category.

I prepared my cup with boiling water and a three-minute steep. The overpowering bergamot scent was present from the first opening of the package all the way through the last drop of tea. After trying a sip, the flavor was so strong it completely masked the base tea. For me, the flavoring was far too powerful and I would only recommend this tea if you really enjoy a strong bergamot flavor and have no interest in tasting anything resembling an oolong.
