Finished off the last of the sample Takgoti gave me. I got three good steeps (2nd @ 4:45, 3rd @ 6:00) out of it before it’s light, lilac/floral flavour started to fade too much. I generally don’t try to wring more steeps out of a tea once it starts telling me that it’s done – even if I could.

It’s a nice oolong, but I don’t think I’d buy it – it’s not a bad tea, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve had better oolongs IMO (the one from the Jade Teapot being a good example).

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!)
