I received this as part of an oolong sampler Steepster now offers. This was a pleasant, relaxing tea with faintly sweet character hinting of honey, and simply satisfying. It was great for three steeps. I increased water temperature and steep time just a tad with each subsequent steep, starting slightly lower than recommended.

Flavors: Caramel, Honey

I didn’t hate this tea, but it was not my favorite. It was very sweet and a bit tart for me.

Steeps to a wonderful light green. (I transferred mine to a clear glass just to enjoy the color more.) The taste is layered from the initial greens (think salad/spinach) and seaweed to a lingering subtle sweet fruit-like melon quality. Pleasant and interesting.

Flavors: Melon, Seaweed, Spinach

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I was surprised once again by the apricot aroma of this tea. It made for a perfect summer afternoon cold-brew. Subtle flavors.

I like oolongs, but I am not sure this one was a good choice for an iced steepster box.

Not a herbal tea person, but this was okay iced. I prefer stronger tasting iced teas though.

This was excellent iced with lemon as described. I did prefer to make it at little stronger than what was called for to prevent flavor loss when icing.

I like mint, but am not a big fan of Chinese green teas. It was good iced though.

MAJOR backlogging today, if you hadn’t noticed. :p
ANYHOW, i never can quite decide if i like formosa oolongs or not. this one was one with a lot more going on than some i’ve had (cough pilgrim’s rest tea shoppe cough), not so cardboardy and one-dimensional. it’s usually the depth and layering of flavors i love so much in teas, but they helped not one bit with this one. not that it was bad. just. not great. feh. i’ll give it a C.

ew. i should have known, with the hibiscus right there in the title, that i would not favor this tisane. i prefer when tea crafters add the beetroot base, rather than hibiscus.

that said, i have yet to try it out on my son, or my dad, both of whom love this sort of thing. because of that, and my built-in bias against hibiscus, i shall refrain from rating until at least one of them tries it.

ok, i tried. i don’t usually like mint tea all that much (i mean, it isn’t AWFUL), but i thought the steepster select can’t be so bad, can it?

yes. it can. if you don’t care for mint teas, you can skip this one, sadly. i’m not going to give this an awful rating, as it wasn’t awful, it just wasn’t for me. i could at least tell it was probably a really great mint for those who love mint!

oh, this is GOOD! it doesn’t taste like the bergamot is somehow an artificial flavoring, which makes me happy. deep dark delightful tea underneath, holding up the floating lemony bergamot. just love this stuff. i’d love to try icing it as well, but alas, i used up my sample.
