teaquildrescitrusoolongKeeping in line with my recent fixation with oolong tea, I decided to sample Teaquilibrium’s Citrus Oolong today. The dried blend consists of a hodge-podge of oolong leaves, green rooibos, lemon grass, and some other ingredients as well. The teaquilibrium site states that green tea, lemon myrtle, citrus flavor, and jasmine blossoms are also included. Not knowing the entire ingredients list, I had assumed this tea would be an orange and/or lemon flavored oolong. However, as soon as I opened my sample packet, I was hit with the distinct whiff of bergamot, which gives Earl Grey tea its characteristic flavor. I am really not a fan of earl grey tea, so I knew that this tea would not be a big hit with me, but I still attempted to review this tea without letting my personal tastes affect my evaluation of the quality of the tea. The bergamot is the reigning flavor of this tea, although the contributions of the lemongrass and lemon myrtle are best noted in the aftertaste. Compared to typical earl gray teas that I often find heavy and flat, this tea maintains an overall light-bodied feel, perhaps as a result of using oolong leaves (instead of black leaves) blended with green rooibos and green tea leaves, two ingredients whose individual flavors are too insubstantial to really be distinguished in the blend. While I wasn’t particularly won over by this blend, I do think this would be an intriguing blend and change of pace for earl gray lovers. However,I don’t see this being a big hit with those that don’t particularly care for bergamot-flavored teas. Perhaps a name including bergamot or earl gray would better suit this tea and prepare the drinker for the healthy dose of bergamot flavor, since bergamot is probably not what normally comes to mind when one hears the term ‘citrus’.
