I’ll admit, I was a little afraid to steep this for 6 minutes, having only ever steeped Oolongs for much much shorter times, but it came out absolutely lovely. Sweet, soft, beautiful. Mmmmm.
The second steep was much less sweet with more of the oolong leaf flavor coming through, but very nice with a light floral fragrance and taste.
