Being fairly new to oolongs I don’t know how this is in comparison to others, but strictly from a tea standpoint, it is fairly unique. I am currently on my third steep, having conducted first steep for 1 minute and second steep for 2, this one got 3, and my next and last for these leaves will get 4. That said, I might start with a 2 minute steep next time or add just a few more leaves for a stronger, more potent brew.

The aroma is a distinct and sweet aroma, like a flower I can’t think of the name of. Magnolia? Hibiscus? I’m terrible with plants, so the right comparison escapes me. The liquor is clear with a light golden hue. The leaves barely opened up on the first steep, and only partially opened up on the second. They’ve finally fully bloomed with the third steep. And finally, the taste is a faint sweet nectar with a slightly roasted character.

I only recently started my fascination with tea. I was drinking 4+ cups of coffee a day, and the caffeine intake was starting to affect me noticeably. So I quit coffee, bought some loose leaf black tea and have since grown to love many varieties of tea, mostly unflavored.
