Golden Oolong (ITO EN)

Tuesday is Iced Tea Review day!

Why oh why had I not thought of an iced Oolong tea before this!?! I can't believe it never occured to me. Well, regardles... this surprisingly light but flavorful ready to drink iced Oolong tea is a real thirst quencher!

Right away you can tell this iced brew from ITO EN is different. The color alone sets it apart as a bright and inviting light maple-gold.

The aroma is lightly fragrant like a summer Darjeeling with some notes of maybe-not-quite-ripe pear and honey.

The flavor is smooth and light but without much tail. There is a light sweetness and the faintest hint of tart.

I would recommend this bottled iced tea to anyone looking for a smooth and light refreshing drink on a hot day. Or maybe just a cold beverage.

20% off our stainless steel classics, and also a gift!

    I'd say ITO EN comes through as one of the few companies offering quality ready-to-drink teas. This is one of them. Looking at the flavor profile and finding pear and honey is a good sign for a bottled drink. And because it's an Oolong is a good sign from ITO EN. I must say to them, "Keep up the good work!"

    Until now I hadn't heard of iced Oolong tea. Sounds tasty. I'll going to give this a try.

    Please do! Iced Oolongs are some of the better iced teas I've had over the years.
