Oh…another bottled tea. I’ve got plenty of loose leaf teas left, but work has been busy and I’ve had a lot on my plate, so bottled teas have been my go-to drink for the past few weeks. Today, it’s Ito En’s Golden Oolong Tea. This unsweetened tea is a blend of huan jin hui (also known as Golden Cinnamon) and ti kuan yin (also known as Iron Goddess or tieguanyin).
Taste-wise, it’s really the best of both oolongs! The huan jin hui brings a nice toasty warm flavor with a whisper of cinnamon, and the ti kuan yin is nice and grassy with a bit of a stewed greens flavor. Together, it’s a pretty nice robust blend that would go well with food or on a hot day. Nice!
