I tried cold brewing this, which was a mistake. I was like ‘what could go wrong?’ Most other green oolongs are great cold-brewed. Buttery and tannic and awful. At least there was some flavor versus the hot brew. Not good flavor, but flavor.
Ended up pouring it out.

Flavors: Butter, Tannic

Interesting, do you mean you didnt like the hot brew?

Hot it didn’t have much flavor at all :( It had creamy mouthfeel, but didn’t taste like anything. I’ve tried it both ways.

Planning on trying it hot again just to see if I can’t coax out what it’s supposed to be like.

I’ve been having that issue with most of my Jin Xuan’s lately…Are you at least getting some grassy fruity aftertaste? Like literal pineapple skin instead of fruity pineapple? If not, darn.

Bio

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

My cupboard is mostly up to date.

Ratings
85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
