Oolong flavour is not as robust as I would like it- results in a rather thin-tasting brew. I may try using a higher concentration of dry leaf next time.
Thank you to Sil who shared this with me!

Creeping astringency but not very pronounced. Black and green tea flavours are blended nicely. A more pronounced black tea taste would go better with the lighter strawberry flavour. Overall, a bit thin tasting and dilute.

This is a totally different tea to me than what we had at the tea festival…

Raritea

I completely agree! It was so flavourful- glad that it isn’t just me who noticed it.

Dry leaf smells like sweet potato. Sweet, floral, tuber vegetable-tasting. Flavour tastes a bit dilute- I may want to infuse for a longer amount of time in the future.

Gave the dry leaf a 1 second rinse before infusion.

Slight milkiness. Soft sweetness. Hint of fruity tone.
