I will admit I am a barbarian. I have to have a tea come up and kick me in the butt for me to appreciate it and buy it again. I used 195F water tried for 1 minute, tried for 2 minutes, tried for 3 minutes with the sample size in a 10 ounce Yixing pot. I am sure someone with a more refined palate than mine could appreciate this tea, but to me, it seems weak and tasteless. Maybe I didn’t use enough tea? Glad this was just a sample!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 45 sec

After reading Tea Trekker suggestions, I might try my other Oolong samplings at a little lower temp…maybe 195 was too hot.
