Now for some tea
Of course, I had to try some of my new teas in my new teapot. The first one I tried was the Shalimar Oolong, which featured oolong tea with rose petals, aronia berries, mango and apparently a passionfruit flavoring. Oddly enough, they used a toasty Formosa Oolong as the basis, leading to a toast and fruit flavor - I had it for breakfast so it worked, in a sort of odd way. I think the fruits would work better with an oolong tending towards the greener end of the spectrum. It was OK though. The second tea I tried was a black tea flavored with strawberry - that was good. I daresay it would also make an awesome iced tea. And everything worked just fine in my newest teapot.
