The Tea Can Company is a company that specializes in tea cans rather than tea. Their focus is on providing private labeling for weddings, parties, businesses, etc. They have a very small selection of only 10 teas, this one being their only oolong option. Their teas aren’t what I’d consider high quality tea, they’re marketed toward the average tea drinker or someone who may not even be into tea at all that is looking for a personalized gift or for a tea tray at an office meeting.
I only recieved one bag of Tea Can Companies Raspberry Oolong so I chose to brew for 5 minutes in about 6 ounces of water at 190 F, your typical oolong temperature. There were no brewing times or temperatures listed on the packaging and this tea comes in pyramid sized bags. Surprisingly the tea tag attached had no design or marking on it at all, a bit disappointing. Maybe you can customize this part if you were to order? The ingredients listed are partially oxidized Ti Guan Yin oolong tea with raspberry flavoring, apple bits, cranberry bits and hibiscus. When ever I see flavoring to a tea I get a bit discouraged.
You can smell the hibiscus and sweet notes of this cup, as far as flavor this cup is really lacking for me. The flavor is nothing spectacular. It’s not horrible though, it’s a good simple easy drink. The Tie Guan Yin is a faint taste, the fruity flavors take center stage with a strong cranberry bit to it and a hint of sweet apple. I could see this being more of an iced tea for summer with the fruity flavors.
Overall, I’m not completely disappointed, but I’m not thrilled over this cup either. I’d give it a 6.5.
