Tuesday is Iced Tea Review day!
There are times when I need some quick energy. Not being a coffee drinker anymore, tea is where I would prefer to turn. Tea however, doesn’t always provide that quick pick-me-up I need… that’s where ITO EN’s ‘Shots’ come in!
|Blend Name||Oolong Shot|
|Iced Tea Base||Oolong|
|Country of Origin||Japan|
|Price per Package||$1.50 USD|
|*Flavor, Aroma, Boldness|
When I think of energy, I don’t usually think of Oolong. Perhaps more of a Black tea or white tea instead. However, these antioxident packed cans of tea power provide the boost you need on days when drowsy seems like a light term.
The cans are small, perhaps half the size of a regular size Red Bull. Stylishly designed and colorful they’re likely to catch your eye.
The color of the Oolong in this ‘shot’ is a light honey-gold with an entra tinge of yellow.
The aroma comes of as roasty, reminiscent of light toast. Paired with an equally roasty but slightly astringent taste with a protracted tail, this Oolong conjures memories of a robust Hojicha.
Those who do not like strong teas should avoid ITO EN’s shots. Alternatively, those who enjoy strong Japanese greens will absolutely love this Oolong!
