It’s strange – the first time I tasted this I got notes of peach and grape. This time? It’s very seaweedish. Strong, and roasty. Also, a little bitter. The directions said to steep it at boiling but I’ll re-steep it at a lower temperature and see if that helps.

The steeped leaves smell grap-y though. I’ll have to re-steep it, but for now I don’t think this is one I need to restock. I’ll wait until I get a better understanding/appreciation of oolongs first!

ETA: The resteep is nice and roasty and now I’m getting a little bit of grape as well. This is much nicer! I still don’t think this is my favourite of the teaviver oolongs though.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.

76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
