My first Oolong! (thanks to Starfevre)
The black Oolong base is intriguing — has an interesting, sort of earthy scent, and a nice mellow flavour — although still a wee bit bitter, as I typically find black tea to be. A pleasant cup of tea, but as usual, I would have liked more peachiness. I guess I really like a strong hit of fruit. (If it tasted like hot juice, I’d probably be okay with that. ;-)
Steeped in boiling water for 5 minutes, as instructed. Next time I make an Oolong, will try 4 minutes and see if that reduces bitterness.
Tried a repeat steeping (because I read somewhere that some people swear that it gets better with the 2nd or even 3rd steeping), but that resulted in even less of the peach scent/flavour, and perhaps a little more bitterness.
This tea’s got me interested to try more Oolong blends.
