drank Lychee (Lichee) Oolong by Lupicia
1610 tasting notes

Rounds 2 and 3

The second time I steeped the leaves – for 3:30 mins – the lychee flavour was considerably fainter, with the oolong base being more distinct. It made the steeping taste quite bakey.

The third steeping at 4:30 mins is pretty weak, though interestingly the sweet lychee flavour is back a little bit.

So not really a tea that’s good for the long haul; I probably wouldn’t steep this more than twice.

Nice to see you’re having better luck with this than I did!

Part of it is just down to personal taste, I think. :)

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!)
