Steeped for 2.5 min in boiling water. I’m not tasting any of it’s supposedly ‘sweet, fruity character’. It’s got the roasted ‘bakey’ taste (which has a slightly bitter, almost burnt quality to it) but it’s very much a one note tea and the flavour isn’t very developed.

I like the Formosa Oolong from Lavender Basics better than this one.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
