Day 3 of the 24 Days of Tea calendar!

I’ve always wanted to try this tea, but never actually bought any because I don’t like milk. Anything with the word “milk” in it I instantly assume I’m not going to be a fan of, whether it’s true or not. Since this was my perfect opportunity to try it before I bought it (sort of…), I was excited.

The smell: milky. Uh, oh. This is not starting off well.

The taste: a little milky, a lot oolongy, and a wee tinge of bitterness. Definitely over-steeped. It’s certainly not horrible, but so far it hasn’t been enough to wow me. I’ll try again with the other half of the container tomorrow and make sure I pay attention to the steeping. I’m not prepared to write it off yet!

Verdict: will have to try a second time to know for sure.

I’m not sure what steeping parameters you used, but I usually do about 190 degrees for 3 minutes for green oolongs. :)

I love tea. And I don’t mean like “I like to drink tea in the mornings”. I mean, I LOVE TEA. I also have an intense love for spreading the news that plants and fungi are the coolest groups of organisms on Earth. If you’d like to learn why I think so, you should visit my blog. I write about one cool plant or fungus every day.
