Very florally and light. I tried steeping this at a lower temp than I usually do oolongs to see if it made a difference and because TFT is not very specific on their recommendations on temperatures or steeping times. I did the first two steeps at 190F and 75 seconds and then two minutes because the first steep was way too light for me. Astringent very buttery taste not altogether bad, but it just didn’t do “it” for me. Tried one last steep at 4 minutes, but was pretty unremarkable. Glad these are just samples.

190 °F / 87 °C 1 min, 15 sec

Transitioning from military and spending the afternoons shuttling the kids and drinking tea…mostly Japanese and Chinese green/oolong and Taiwanese oolong. Occasionally imbibing in a Teavana herbal blend at night.

My cupboard is completely up to date. Currently, I am drinking lots of tea from Seven Cups and Den’s.
