I’ve really enjoyed this one today at work. I think oolong is my new thing. I’ve been drinking an awful lot of oolong lately. This one is really nice. Slightly sweet, slightly fruity, really smooth. Resteeps well. It’s kept me company through multiple mugs during a crazy frustrating day at the office. I don’t get piney from this one, like the description says, but I am really enjoying it. I’m debating on ordering more right now, or if I need to hold off as I have way way way too much tea on its way. This one will probably wait for a while, but Eco-Cha, you are on my list.

Marzipan

You can do oolongs western style?

Cheri

Yep. I do a lot of them western style in a mug. As I’ve started drinking more oolongs, I’ve been wishing I had a smaller mug at work. That way, I could drink multiple infusions without drinking the same tea all all all day long.

Marzipan

I might have to try that, I have avoided oolongs because I thought they had to be done in a gaiwan, and that’s really inconvenient for me while I work.

Cheri

Most of the Oolongs I’ve had actually have western directions and not gongfu directions on them.

apt

why not try doing gong fu and western combination? small amts of water and short steeps. works out pretty well for me, though I have a gaiwan coming in soon…

Still relatively new to drinking teas, or so I feel, even though I’ve been at it for several months now.

I’m drinking more and more of different varieties of tea.

It’s been a few months that I’ve been on here. I’ve expanded from greens and flavored teas to now I’m all about the oolongs and some unflavored blacks. I’m mostly drinking unflavored teas now, but there are a few of those flavored ones that have a special place in my heart.

Pu-erh is also something I’ve recently found that I enjoy.

I have four kitties and a spouse.
