Pour me another round!

A few weeks ago, I tried a cold brewed milk tea which I really liked. I had mentioned that there were other similar products available at the shop I made my purchase, which I was keen on trying out as well. With the weather heating up, I figured the timing is perfect for another test drive.

This time around, I opted for the Golden Oolong Tea. This is an unsweetened blend of Huan Jin Gui and Tie Guan Yin from Taiwan. I’ve had Tie Guan Yin many times before, which also goes by the name “Iron Goddess of Mercy” if that sounds familiar. I don’t think I’ve ever had Huan Jin Gui which means “Golden Osmanthus”, but I was up for the cold combo!

Ooohhh, so good!

This Oolong blend wasn’t bad at all. Not as sweet as the milk tea drink I had the last time, but it was refreshing and easy to gulp down on a hot day. I liked the fact that it was unsweetened as I find some drinks with sugar added sometimes masks the true taste of the product. This beverage was smoky and sweet with light floral notes.

Though these ready made tea beverages are convenient and satisfying, they’re not cheap. They’re something to enjoy once in a while and hopefully over time as they become more popular, the cost will go down too. They are worth a try.
