Why not have fruit-flavored oolongs? At my local grocery store, I picked up a bottle of oolong tea with peach flavor, which was heavenly. I know that other vendors have fruit-flavored oolongs, but I would really like to see a few from Adagio!
What's the consensus on this? I hope I'm not the only person around here who likes fruit-flavored teas!
Personally with the exception of Lychee black tea and Orange or Tangerine puerh, I'm not that fond of fruit flavored teas in general so their lack at Adagio doesn't bother me since I buy different teas from different companies.
Peach oolong...good idea! (I love almost anything peach.)
I'd like to try something in-between the strength of the flavored black teas and the subtlety of the flavored whites. (I often add darjeeling to either of those to make my tongue happy.)
Maybe a flavored oolong would do that?????
(Hmm, I'm starting to sound like Goldilocks: "this one's too strong, this one's too weak, this one's juuuust right.")
If you want an oolong with a fruity peach flavor, you might try a Phoenix Dancong (dancong variety of tea from the Phoenix mountains).
Dancongs acquire a fruity and slightly floral aroma and taste from the fruit trees and flowers that grow around the tea bushes. The fruity and floral aspects dominate the flavor, but do so in a much more balanced and natural way that I find far superior to any flavored tea.
I honestly don't think that the flavor could be replicated artifically.
If given the choice between a peach flavored ooong and even a cheap Dancong, I would take the Dancong any and every time.
