1/2 tbsp in 12 oz

This is a great oolong that’s a bit lighter and drier than a Bai Hao. Just as last time, I really love it. It isn’t astringent (now that I have a good thermometer!), and has a very pleasant, soothing flavor. (Not really floral like many other oolongs I’ve tasted.) It’s perfect for me when I want tea in the late afternoon and have already had a few stronger teas earlier in the day. This is probably the “lightest” tea I’ve had that I really like. I’m embracing the fact that I’m not a green tea person (at least for now).

Profile

Bio

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
