I used yesterday’s leaf and steeped three more cups (total of five – 12oz mugs). The last still had nice floral flavor and the lemon and lime were still mildly present.

Rehashing a bit the first cup was so lemon lime it tasted fake – like you would expect from a flavored tea bag. Maybe if I used a short first steep it would be greatly improved. The rest of the cups were excellent and highly floral like a high mountain oolong with lemon lime more in the background. I think the base is Huang Jin Gui (Golden Osmanthus) and it is very nice. Really like this one. If I can figure out how to improve cup one I may up the rating even more.

Well, it is an oolong so you could toss the first cup like lots of people do.

That’s just crazy talk! lol. I do this with puerh sometimes, but only as a last resort.

Hahahaha!! I completely agree! But I’ve heard this is a common practice, so I thought I’d mention it. :P I never throw out tea unless it’s completely gross and undrinkable, which fortunately isn’t often.

I don’t remember the last cup I couldn’t drink. I can’t even remember the last cup of aweful tea I have had. In the world of tea, I have been smiled upon :)
