drank China Oolong by Twinings
12 tasting notes

Well bought a box of this in bags to try it out. Either I am not brewing it correctly or its too light of a tea for me because I couldnt taste any flavor. I will keep in on hand for friends who dont like strong tea.

Likewise, I’m drinking a cup now but I can’t taste anything other than hot water!

I tried it one more time only this time using two bags and hotter water….got some flavor but it wasnt worth the trouble, guess Im just not a Oolong type of gal

Oolong is supposed to be a lighter tea than black tea. If you want it stronger try brewing it with 2 teabags per cup instead of one.

Finding all the pleasures and awakenings in Loose Leaf tea late in life, but thankful I did.Theres something very calming about tea, from the bouquet that wafts from the tin to the design the fannings left in the bottom of the cup.Perhaps its not the refinement from the ceremony of preparation, nor the enjoyment of warmth, scent and flavor, but perhaps its the pure and simple pleasure of enjoying something that is elemental,unassuming and humble in its existance.
