It says to prepare this in boiling water but I erred on the side of caution and used 195 which is still a bit high compared to other oolong instructions. This is pleasant. It isn’t super flavored, but it’s a dark oolong with a bit of vanilla flavoring. I added sweetener which helped. It’s neither amazing nor awful but I’m glad I only got a sample. I have a bit more to experiment with the temperature and steeping time.

195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

I recently discovered loose leaf tea and am already addicted (much to my husband’s dismay)! I prefer fruity teas iced and savory teas hot. Looking forward to drinking and chatting.

Some likes/dislikes I’ve been noticing:

Fruity White Teas
lighters Blacks
Most Oolongs (especially greener varieties)
dessert teas
tisanes iced that don’t require added sweetener

Spicy flavors unless in chai
astringent black teas
heavy ginger teas
teas with licorice (as primary ingredients – somehow I like some where the licorice is in the back drop)
heavily oxidized oolongs

For my own reference, I’m only placing “full size” teas in my cupboard.
