Hmm. I tried this with the mini-steeps that Life in Teacup recommends for oolongs — they seemed like a good fit for my new mini-teapot! — but I think I might try this again with the long steeping suggested by Samovar next time.

This tea smells earthy; I can’t think of another way to describe it. With short steeps, though, it tastes lighter and feels heavier than that. I had four cups in four hours — not a whole lot, really, given how teeny-tiny omg adorable this little teapot is — and I felt full and weighed down! For the fifth steep, I went for three minutes, and the resulting tea changed quite a bit: it was more complex and it tasted a bit heavier. However, it also grew bitter very quickly as it cooled.

I like tea!

Since joining Steepster, it’s become apparent that this statement desperately needs further refinement.
