yesterday i proudly made tea lattes with this one for myself and for my son…and he promptly rejected it as tasting of “water with a little coconut added”. on the upside, i got to drink two coconut truffle tea lattes!

this one is a tasty cuppa…like most imperial gold type teas, i do love it brewed THICK with added milk and sugar, call me a philistine, but if you’re looking for a cup of cozy, that is it.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

I also love to, how do you say, over-steep this one. :P I’ll have to try it with milk next time! :)

quite nice – don’t forget to rinse quickly before steeping for real, maybe even twice. this one has much pungency to excise. once that’s done, though, a lingering floral that somehow manages not to be too flowery, if that makes any sense. a large mug of the first three steepings contains a deep rich aroma and a thick round taste, simply a lovely robust oolong.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 0 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

my goodness, i have had this for quite a while! found myself craving it, delighted myself by still owning it, but skeptical on yumminess due to age of tea…STILL TASTY!

ok i am officially upping my rating, my description, and my method for brewing. i mostly kinda followed the latte instructions on the tin, and here’s what i did that came out SO NOM NOM:

2 tsp ish of dry tea
12 oz boiling water

steep for 2 min-ish

meanwhile, microwave 1/3 cup of milk and 1 tsp sugar for 30 seconds in a very large mug

decant steeped tea into hot milk, stir, and enjoy!

OMG SO GOOD

and IIRC, this company is out of business, so when i run out, that’s it. argh. savoring every last bit of this for as long as i can!

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 30 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

have i srsly not reviewed this tea before? i’m finally closing down on that last teaspoon (one more lovely steep session after this one!) of bulk tea that i bought oh so long ago. if i didn’t say it before, i’ll say it now: i love this tea. for whatever reasons, perhaps because it was my favorite of the first oolongs i tried, this one remains my standard THIS IS WHAT OOLONG SHOULD TASTE LIKE in my book. it is light, buttery, fragrant, extremely hard to mis-steep, and just all around NOM! now, there might be yummier, better teas out there, but in my experience those are all harder to brew well, are much fussier about water temp and length of steep time and the price of tea in china at any given moment. Tea at Sea’s Mountain Organic Indonesian Oolong is none of that. it just is. perfect. every time. get some. (i shall refill my stash within the month!)

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
