This is my favorite flavored oolong. It has a consistent spot in my tea cabinet, and I have to remind myself to drink other teas because I love this one so much.

It has a lovely citrus flavor blended with flavors that remind me of India. The flavor combination is wonderful. The citrus gives it a high note that combines with the darker oolong flavor and spices beautifully. I tried Wild Orange Oolong as well, and I found it rather weak compared to this Oolong.

Although you could use this tea any time of day, I like to use it in the afternoon when I'm reading or in the evening because I find it so relaxing.

I purchased this tea on a whim at 50% off in store because I was very excited about how it smelled. The right amount of citrus and spice, and smelled like it would taste tangy but not bitter.

I found the first brewing of this tea to be very very bitter, even with a few rock sugars thrown in. I brewed and steeped according to the instructions and I ended up adding a little more hot water to my cup to tone down the intensity. The second brewing was much better, though still slightly bitter.

I added a stick of cinnamon to the second brewing because the citrus flavor overpowered whatever spice profile was supposed to be in the tea. It improved the taste quite a bit and will probably add it to future brews of this tea. I am tempted to try adding other spices to the brew, as I am disappointed with how overpowering the citrus is.

If you like citrus (though slightly artificial) and don't mind bitterness, then you would enjoy this tea.

  • After Meals

This tea has a wonderful scent, but is way to strong and bitter once brewed. I recommend tempering it out with some warm or cold water and some honey. which helps tone down the unpleasant bitterness.

Cider-y!

By Berry

Cons

  • Artificial Taste

Best Uses

  • Evening

This tastes just like orange spice tea, with a cider-y twist! It's warm and cinnamon-y, with a filling flavor. However, oranges and cinnamon don't blend well in this tea, and I find the flavor to be too powerful and too acidic, making an accidental over-steep or extra tea an absolute tragedy. Even as someone who loves very strong, very aromatic teas, this tea was just WAY too powerful, and the orange flavor (despite the mix having real mandarin orange peels) tasted very, very artificial and gave the tea a bad aftertaste.

Great fruity tea. I wanted something a green tea, but so long as you don't seep it too long, it won't become bitter and saturated. This tea is great. I love the orange citrus.

A pleasant cuppa

Pros

Cons

  • A Little Bland
  • Weak

Best Uses

  • Morning

This is a very pleasant tea, although it is a bit weak and even more so after the first steep. The flavor leans more toward the citrus side and less toward the spice. The caffeine provides a nice pick me up while the spicy aroma warms and soothes. Not my favorite tea but nice to have around "just in case."

    This tea tastes like a snowy winters night.
    I think it would make an amazing iced tea as well. Very citrusy and nice warm spices.

    The best tea I've ever had.

      • All Of The Time

      This is by far the best tea I've ever drank. While the name is "Spiced Mandarin Oolong" it really isn't spicy. It tastes like hot orange juice with some nice mulled-spice tones. It has good drinkability, it isn't too strong but still has nice flavor. Though I love this tea, a much stronger, spicier version would be nice, but as a separate tea. This would be great to serve at an autumnal event, and is amazing iced as well as hot.

      A bit weak, but tasty

      By Dayna the Tea Junkie

      • When you want to Relax

      I found this tea to be a bit weak, and not as spicy as I was expecting. Sweetener definitely helps, and I found that if I add a bit more Oolong to the mix, it is greatly improved. Not something I would drink regularly, but I found that it brought on a Mellow Mood and was pleasant to daydream by. I will buy it again, in small quantities.

        I've ventured into the tea a while ago once I stopped drinking soda and all other things that arent good for you to drink. Needing caffine at work I decided to give this a try. It definitely does the trick. Very delicious. It even helps if you have an unsettled stomach.
