teagbossanovaTeaGschwendner uses a Chinese oolong as the base for Bossa Nova. As is typical with oolongs, the dried leaves are a bit deceiving in their size, but once they begin to swirl through the hot water, they quickly unfurl to reveal the large full leaves. Bossa Nova's aroma is nothing short of delightful! There is a creamy sweetness to the aroma that reminds me of a milk oolong and caramel. The ingredients are listed as hazelnut brittle, mullein blossoms and the ever thought provoking "natural flavor". I can't say that I get much hazelnut aroma, but the combination definitely works.

I allowed the first infusion to brew for two minutes and drank it so fast that I wasn't able to assemble anything resembling a review. That was fine in this case as I believe the second infusion was just as good, if not better than the first. Both produced a deep honey colored cup with absolutely no bitterness. Judging from the richness of the flavor in my second cup and the aroma still present from the leaves, I have no doubt that I will be able to obtain at least one more tasty infusion from these leaves. Bossa Nova is smooth, rich and sweet on its own and I would recommend it as an afternoon or dessert tea.
