When I brewed this tea as indicated on the label, I found it smelled like an old musty basement and tasted like brewed rotten wood. So now I wash the leafs for about ten seconds, dump the water and then steep for 30-45 seconds. What a difference!

I enjoy “real” tea: black, oolong, darjeeling, green, white (in that order).

I get most of my teas at Teavana, DavidsTea, Metropolitan Teas and just found the beauty of high quality Taiwan Oolongs!
