I had to add it because I couldn’t find it. __
This is I suppose what I would call upper tier Asian supermarket tea. The price is not the most expensive on the shelf per oz, but more than the other teas, about $4.99 for 6oz. Which is actually quite cheap for tea comparing to online tea vendors.
Wash the leaves before the first steep. I forgot and it was yuck. After washing though the leaves steeped into a bright oolong flavor, which is funny because I normally associate oolong as a more deep flavor.
The leaves expand alot. A LOT. I think that perhaps you could get away with using less leaf with it then. The leaves uncurled are full leaves, some with the stems still attached.
I’m using a teapot I haven’t used in awhile, it’s a bodum tea pot with one of those tea press mechanisms, however, I just took the infuser out of the pot after steeping. This pot, despite all of its faults, makes me happy because it is bright orange.
