Certainly the best Formosa Oolong I’ve had (although I do have a Tung Ting Jade here still yet to try). This one’s very lightly oxidized, almost like a green tea but still with the floral Oolong character. I used 3 heaping tsp in my 14 oz. Yixing pot, and I’m on the first steep of hopefully 3 at around 2, 2:30, 3:00 and water at 195ish. Can’t wait for the next infusions.

I was actually disappointed by the second and third steep – neither of them had very much character at all. Mostly like Oolong scented water. I may not have used enough leaf.
