So this is my very first Oolong tea. I brewed it in a glass tea infuser and I loved how the leaves unfurled. The scent of this is lovely, but I could also smell some bitterness.
My overall impression of this is that I’m not sure I ‘like’ oolong tea, but I do enjoy taking a deep whiff every time I bring my cup up to take a sip. The aftertaste is very bitter to me, but not as bitter as green tea. Even with the bitterness I found this to be very smooth to drink. Perhaps a I should add a bit of sweetener? Does anyone put milk in oolong?
I also see that people brew the same batch of leaves a few times. I have never done this. Can I brew the same leaves again tomorrow? Or does it have to be within a certain time frame (no moldy leaves please!)??
