This Indonesian (Sumatran) oolong is similar to Ti Kuan Yin. I have steeped it four times, at 60 seconds each. If steeped longer, it has a tendency to become bitter; however, astringency is never a factor. This is a fine oolong, with a taste of fresh leaves and a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Bio

Mr Steep likes tea plain, or variously with lemon, fruit juice, honey, spices, cow’s milk or soy milk, as appropriate.

Mr Steep avoids flavoured teas: flavouring rarely makes something out of nothing.

Mr Steep applies this philosophy to good coffee, too.
