Ying Kee Tea House Peach Oolong


After the dis­ap­point­ing Mango Tekannon by Ying Kee Tea House, I was curi­ous to try the oth­er one of their teas in my col­lec­tion: Ying Kee Tea House Peach Oolong. This peach oolong is a vast improve­ment from the mango tekan­non. For starters, the flor­al notes of oolong tea are present, des­pite the fla­vour­ing (here, peach) remain­ing very sweet and strong and threat­en­ing to over­whelm. The tea doesn’t have very much depth to its fla­vour, although that much is to be expec­ted from an instant tea. If I’m look­ing for a more soph­ist­ic­ated fla­voured oolong, I’ll have to fall back on my looseleaf teas by Lupicia.

This box of Ying Kee Tea House Peach Oolong con­tained 5 sachets. It was packed in Japan and pur­chased in Osaka, Japan in 2014
