This is a bright, fruity tea with strong citrus notes. The Wulong Oolong nestles neatly between the orange and the other herbal flavours.

I find that I have to use a little more tea and leave it to steep for longer than other teas for the full palate and aroma to come through. The same tea can be resteeped afterwards, but it is then very weak - not really recommended.

On the whole though, I do like this tea. I like to drink it when I need to chill out, like at the end of a long day at work, or to relax at the weekends. Works equally well as a nice tea after dinner.

I agree entirely with everybody who says the fruit flavors mask the Oolong flavors. After experimenting, I've discovered I get a better flavor balance if I steep it for a shorter amount of time - two minutes, max. The oolong flavor develops faster than the fruit flavor, and two minutes seems to be the sweet spot where the oolong is fully developed and the fruit is still mild.

Should it be this complicated to brew a good cup of tea? Possibly not. But once I figured out the way I like it, I absolutely adore the result.

Maybe as much as 10 years ago, Teavana made a Mandarin mango green tea, then changed it, then discontinued it all together. This reminds me of the mandarin mango I fell in love with.

I will re-steep it if I just want something hot to drink, but it's pretty blah on its second use.

On the first use, it's great hot and positively miraculous iced. Only three Buddhas because of how hard it is to find the balance.

I am fanatical in my devotion to oolongs, especially of the green variety. I ordered this out of curiosity since I rarely delve into the realm of flavored green oolongs. I was simultaneously pleased and disappointed. The flavors are outstanding, bright and citrusy. But the fruit masks the glorious green oolong. After multiple steeping attempts, I found it extremely difficult to brew it properly so I could taste the tea. This would be better with a mid-grade green tea instead, something that won't get lost in all this fruity goodness. But the saving grace of this tea is the fact that I have never found a more refreshing iced tea.

Agree with most of the reviews. However, I blend this with a Sencha Green. I want the health benefit of the Sencha but am not a fan of the grass clipping taste. I blend 1:1 and the Wulong completely overpowers the taste of the Sencha yet gives it more body. Overall an outstanding tea although it's true you will not get a second steep and recommend you give it the full three minutes if not four.

      As a drinker of straight black teas, I did not think that I would like this blended fruity tea. The woman behind the counter suggested I try it and I am glad she did. A wonderful orange citrus taste. Very sweet, but I like it in the mid-afternoon as a pick-me-up. The scent is strong.

        A delicious, fruity, aromatic (you really need to try sampling this tea's aroma in one of their stores -- Wow!) tea blend that is delicious warm but is perfect on ice. I particularly like to blend this tea in equal parts with Golden Monkey and pour it over ice. Low tannins, nice fruit, not sweet... Perfect!

        I wasn't to sure how it would come out at first. I used one and a half teaspoons instead of one and 2 teaspoons of the German Rock Sugar, brewed for 3 minutes. It came out just like it smells <3 HEAVEN!!!!

          The meaning of my title is that if I had to choose only one tea to be stranded on a desert island with...this would be the one. It's clearly the best tea of it's kind that I have ever had. Light and citrus taste with a really punch of warm, wild orange aroma.
          I would be happy to drink it any time. Okay..it's a little expensive to my mind, but not as pricey as some and worth the indulgence.

          I heard about this website from a regular i see at the coffee shop i work at, she told me all about these wonderful teas and i was just so curious i came on here and started looking at the huge choice selection. I was so happy to see different orange flavored teas, and i believe this one is the best base flavor to mix with anything. I use it at work allot of the time but i add chamomile lemon tea and it always comes out nicely, the only downfall is i like my tea really strong and this one takes a little more of the tea to get the desired flavor.
