The last time I had this one I brewed it at the recommended time/temp, but was wanting more flavor so I decided this time I would go hotter/shorter. Not sure that entirely worked for me, as now it is edging on bitter. Not quite at that point, but maybe I went too hot this time. Ah well. In the end, I’m still not really a fan of dark oolongs, but I do like trying well-rated ones occasionally just in case my tastes have changed.
