I switched up the steeping parameters a little bit, but I don’t much like the results. It seems to make for a weaker, more watery-tasting oolong with a bit of a sweet aftertaste. The resteep is a bit more well-rounded but I think this oolong needs a slightly hotter steeping temperature to coax it into properly releasing its flavour.

Bio

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!)
