This one has been sitting in my cupboard for a while. I remember it having a bit of bitterness, but I was probably steeping it with boiling water back in the day! Oops. So this time I steeped it for 3min with 80 degree water and it’s actually really smooth and mellow. I think I’ll try slightly hotter water next time to see if I can get the mint to pop a bit more.
I had recently abandoned my variable temperature kettle and lovely cast iron pot for more convenient teas, and boiling water on the stove. It was pure laziness.
I took a roadtrip to Tea Store in Ottawa and chose this one on the recommendation of a girl there. When I got home, I pulled out my trusty old friend and my special kettle, and I was mindblown. Despite my being sick and having no taste whatsoever, I had a strange sense of calm come over me. It was beautiful.
I am thankful that this oolong is re-steepable (is that even a word?) because it is quite expensive ($25 per 100g).
Tastes: Well, milky (obviously) and smooth. The first steep had a very high-quality black tea type quality, and the other steeps have had a high-quality green type qualities. Wonderful.
Simply wonderful tea and it really does do what the name does. I drink it when I’m on my cycle but also when I’m having stomach cramps as it calms everything down. Its relaxing and smells wonderful.
I believe I had them add a bit of ginger into the mix when I bought it – an addition I highly recommend. It adds a bit of spice to challenge the overwhelming floral of it.
