I don’t usually go for oolongs, but this one came in the swap box I got today. After totally oversteeping another (flavored black) tea earlier, I decided to try this one in increments to see if the flavors change/become more pronounced.
After 3 minutes: very light, vegetal flavor
After 5 minutes: starting to taste the cream, milky/buttery flavor
6 minutes: creamy flavor is much more pronounced
8 minutes: starts to lose flavor and become sharp and bitter
10 minutes: Suddenly tastes floral… strange.
I’m really really trying to get into more sophisticated teas and I think drinking this one incrementally helped.
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Milk, Vegetal
