I am thinking I didn’t use enough tea when brewing this one. The package suggested 1 tsp to 8 oz. I have a 12 oz mug so I used 1.5 tsp. But I am not getting much flavor out of this at all. It is very light. I am not getting fruity as others tasted – maybe there is the plum flavor way way back in the aftertaste. But on a good note, there is no bitterness at all and it’s very mellow. The smell is amazing. Nice mellow oolong smell.

I’m going to reserve judgment on this one for now. I think I have enough of this sample to brew it again with 2 tsp. I’d love to know how much tea others used.

Would it be weird to add another 1/2 tsp to the second brewing?

Prepared in my Bodum Double Wall Glass mug and YoYo Stainless Steel Infuser.

BTW – I think this might be the most expensive tea I’ve ever tried. I would like to thank Teas Etc for generously sending me a sample.

Update – I can definitely taste more flavor as it cools and am realizing how happy this tea is making me while I drink it.

I love teas that make me happy while drinking them! And oolongs tend to consistently do that to me :)
