drank Peachy Oolong by Tavalon Tea
5 tasting notes

I tried this tea at the recommended steep time, amount, and at 25 degrees bellow the recommended water temperature on the jar. I would usually only do 1 tbs of oolong per 8 oz of water but I figured that maybe for this particular tea it needed a higher amount for a stronger flavor. As far as taste, in the conditions I prepared the tea, I felt like the tea had a very nice aftertaste. It was a little bitter and smokey but in a good way. The peach comes in smoothly at the end. I feel like 220 degrees F (the recommended temp for this Tavalon tea) is a little too much for any tea, I fear burning the leaves. 195 degrees F was just right, next time I may prepare it at 1 tbs per 8 oz.

Preparation
