Can brew English style or grandpa style, and still good even at room temp. Doesn’t need sugar but good with honey. Not at all vegetal, mostly a black tea. Almost no aftertaste at all. Not the most complex but just so easy to drink.

Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Honey, Malt, Plum, Raisins, Vanilla

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Great daily drinker with milk. Astringency is pretty mild. Would be great as an earl grey or blended with other herbs/spices. Makes a wonderful chai, especially with black pepper.

Finicky with temp and steeping time to get the best out of it, easy to over-steep.

Flavors: Malt, Molasses, Star Anise, Stewed Fruits

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Good but boring. Need to use a lot of tea to get flavor and have to steep a very short time or it’s very drying. Best unsweetened as any sweetener overwhelms the flavor.

I am not much into green tea, and this oolong is very vegetal – even if cold-steeped, still tastes like spinach. However, sticky rice notes are very nice.

Is ok with honey.
