Eventide

Dark Pearl Formosa Oolong

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 29 reviews

Tastes Like: sticky rice, steamed banana leaf, orchid
Feels Like: a beach bonfire at sunset

If you’ve never had a dark oolong, get ready for beautiful deep flavor. We love the delicate sweetness and warming flavors of this tea. The first sip opens with gentle floral scents of steamed banana and chocolate orchid. Next sips recall the rich aroma of freshly cooked sticky rice and burnt wood from a distant bonfire. The best part of brewing this pearl oolong tea is that it tastes more flavorful with the second and third infusion as the tightly rolled leaves open up. A tea for lovers of aromatic earthy teas.

The loveliest

I’m the pickiest person I know, extra picky about oolongs, and get bored with flavors and varieties easily. I’m also not a routined person; trying to get me to do the same exact thing daily is a cause lost before it started, but I actually developed a morning tea ritual around this one. AND it’s May ‘22, and I’ve been drinking this daily since October. Kind of a first, kind of a miracle.

It’s good, fam.

It has a perfect medium body, and absolutely has the described delicate sticky rice & steamed banana leaf flavor to it, which is delightful. A hot cup of this does so much to liven my spirits. I drink it with a little sugar, only—I personally find its delicate but complex flavors don’t hold up well to even a splash of milk. That’s just me tho, seems a lot of folx like it that way!

And man, I don’t know what happened to In the Mood for Love, but if you’re ever able to bring it back, I beg you. August Uncommon, for being primarily in the blend business, does single origins RIGHT.

Description tracks

They weren’t lying when they said this tastes like sticky rice. It’s mellow and gentle on the tastebuds, but bodied and creamy with umami flavor. This is a new favorite for me and will definitely become a staple.

It’s wonderful with milk and a few scoops of brown sugar boba!

Wow

This oolong tea has so much body. It's my new favorite from August, among several. I will be purchasing this again. It has become a staple. Great with the milk of choice, or no milk at all. Rich and creamy tasting. Eventide is a hit!

This is my new favorite morning tea. I make a pot and take it into the studio with me. Even the cold tea that has sit for awhile is lovely!

Wow, a delight!

This tea is a true delight! How does it manage to be so weighty in flavor yet light on the palate? The rolled leaves are fun to watch unfurl and do just fine after even a third infusion. Such a powerhouse, I love this tea.
