50 tasting notes

Second tea out of Steepster Select box this month. I have been drinking more oolongs lately, so I am feeling a little more educated in giving a review on one. This one was on the fruity side. It had depth to it, not sure if I tasted honey, but it was very good. I resteeped this twice, the third one was too weak for me, but the first and second were great. I don’t resteep much, once at the most usually, just preference I think. I like the full flavor and feel deprived a little when it is not as intense on the later steepings. Nice oolong, would definitely recommend.

I’m with you on the re-steeping of teas, usually I go for 1 bold steep, or 3min, with a 5min resteep. Unless I’m doing a gongfu session, but that’s another story altogether.

Bio

I have been a tea drinker for a very long time. My Grandmother got me started with Lipton, complete with cream and sugar, when I was 8 yrs old. I have only continued my obsession through the years. I have been really into Rooibos lately, flavored almost always! I tend to drink a lot of flavored tea, to help me cut down on the sugar I use and do not need! Cheers!
