Tea Review: Blue People (Heart and Soul Tea Shop)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 19

Blue People
Heart and Soul Tea Shop
Type: Flavored Oolong
Origin: Not Provided
Product Description: Not Provided.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves are blended with ginseng powder and licorice root.

The liquor is pale yellow with a delicate, sweet aroma of licorice and ginseng. The taste is vine green with ginseng and a licorice finish that is long, sweet, and cool.

I really enjoyed the light flavor and cool finish with this oolong. The leaves open up after the second infusion and the liquor darkens while remaining flavorful through three infusions. It was quite nice at 195° F, and I believe it could be steeped at a higher temperature with good results.

Heart & Soul Tea Shop closed in 2013.
