Eventide

Dark Pearl Formosa Oolong

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 44 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.

Plain and simple

For my go to tea, a great tasting black tea is satisfying and is enough. Eventide is that one for me. It hits the mark every time. Sad to see it’s not available in larger quantities.

QAQ

August, I'm so sad you're eliminating this tea, I wish others had tried it and realized how delicious it was. Just because it's not some fancy medley doesn't mean it's not worth your time, people!! As per all August tea, the quality for the price is astounding. Single-origin tea is make or break on its quality and this is one delicious oolong that deserves a spot on August's top teas list. A tragedy that its potential was not realized by more people.

Who says single origin is boring?

I admit, I absolutely got addicted to this tea. Drink it morning noon and night. Hot, lukewarm or iced. I can’t find words to describe the rush of that first sip in the morning. Even better on the second infusion and decent on the third.

And you’re going to discontinue this? Say it isn’t so! I tried another Formosa oolong from a local tea shop and there was no comparison. Glad I stocked up but hate having to ration it!

Smoky oolong

I love this oolong! I’m sad I only tried it when I learned it was going away, but I’m so glad I got the large bag. This is somehow full of depth but light at the same time. Please don’t get rid of this one!
