drank Monkey-Picked Oolong by Teavana
20 tasting notes

This is an alright oolong but it’s definitely not the best, especially when considering the relatively high price. I’ve been steeping it in my ingenuiTEA at work (the ingenuiTEA is perfect for doing multiple steepings of teas, I’ve been very impressed with it) but it definitely tasted oddly flavorless on the third steeping, which is disappointing. I’ve been careful not to use too-hot water, but it seems like the leaves just don’t have as much flavor as other comparable oolongs. First brew was 3:00 at ~190, second brew was 3:30 at ~190, third was 4:00 at ~190. All in all though, it’s a good tea for the first two steepings, with somewhat of a sweet taste.

190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

I’m partial to strong black teas and Japanese greens, but I’ll try anything once! Rooibos is another favorite. I own way too much tea and I love learning about it (check out the “tea culture” category on Wikipedia if you haven’t already- it’s fascinating)!
