Thanks, Indigobloom, for swapping with me! :D It’s amazing how much a tea can vary from one company to the next.

This tea is really nice. It reminds me of TKY, with the medium flavor, the floral notes and the yellow clarity of the tea. It’s really a great everyday tea. The oolong is clean, medium in strength, not overly toasty, only slightly.

I wasn’t certain if this was the 1st grade Osmanthus Oolong, or the 2nd grade. There are tiny, yellow osmanthus flowers sprinkled throughout the tea, which is pretty and adds interest. The floral notes in the tea are nice, but if oversteeped, can produce a plastic tasting tea.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I wasn’t sure either! the packaging made no indication, atleast not in English! I suspect it’s third grade haha. Overall, an entirely different tea in terms of smoothness and decisive flavour.
ahhh, the plasticky taste, I noticed that to but didn’t really identify it as such till you pointed it out.
