I’m not sure what happened with this tea. At first it seemed as though the first steep had a lovely green oolong flavor which quite enjoyed, but with each successive sip I tasted an increasing bitterness which made my forehead crease with confusion and crankiness until reached the bottom of my up. By time I finished it, I looked like the Grinch.
I didn’t leave the tea leaves in and I didn’t change anything in the cup (other than some natural cooling of course). I’m guessing something happened to my taste buds between my first sip and my last one? I’m not sure? I’m really trying to get a better appreciation for straight teas, but sadly this one didn’t win me over – oh well!
