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
Assam Black

Spicy flavors unless in chai
astringent black teas

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