158 degrees?! At that temperature is it even still tea?!? Well, they know their tea best right? :P

I made this tea gongfu style

1st steeping: 40 seconds at 160F. Hmm pretty tasty but slightly weak. Sweet buttery flavor. I think if I bump up the temperature the flavor won’t be so weak.
2nd steeping: 40 seconds at 180F. Oh no, the milky buttery flavor is gone and it’s all vegetal now. That means I put the temperature too high :(
3rd: 50 seconds at 160F. Jackpot! After lowering the temp back down again the wonderful sweet buttery flavor is back. Take a lesson from me, increase the time, not the temperature with this one (or if that doesn’t work, add more leaves!)

Preparation
3 tsp 4 OZ / 118 ML

Nantou Four Seasons by In Pursuit of Tea was the first type of oolong I ever tried, and it made me fall in love. This one is no different. It definitely didn’t disappoint! I used the whole package in my 120ml/4 oz yixing pot and at first it was a bit bitter and I realized I wasn’t getting much tea. I opened my pot up and realized that there were so many leaves crammed in there I could have filled the pot twice!! Once I removed half the leaves the sweet floral shined right through. Moral of the story: weight my leaves next time! :P

Tried this today and it was really good! I rinsed it 3 times and had to through out first 2 infusions because they were too bitter, but after that I got my steeping times just right and drank 4 or 5 infusions. It got sweeter and sweeter as I kept going. Will consider purchasing this! Maybe I’ll for it for Christmas? :P

drank Absolute Spearmint by RiverTea

I can’t really give this a real numerical rating because I’ve come to dislike flavored teas lately. This is Spearmint flavored oolong but I taste all spearmint and no oolong. I feel like I could have just drank actual spearmint instead, y’know? That being said it does have a nice minty flavor with a hint of ginger in there.

Flavors: Ginger, Spearmint

LOL! Such a good image. It reminds me of those heartburn medication commercials where they show giant chickens and stuff punching people…

drank Peach Oolong by Adagio Teas
226 tasting notes

I’ve had this twice so far. The first time I did it gong fu style and the peach flavor stayed nice and strong steep after steep. The second time I did it Western style and the flavor was pretty much done after the first steep. Good to know! You really couldn’t taste any oolong, just peach. Won’t be buying this because I seem myself quickly drifting away from flavored tea…

Flavors: Peach

Hi, I’m Tyler :) I’m a fashion blogger with quite the tea obsession. I try to keep my caffeine intake next to nothing, so I’m always on the lookout of a new herbal to taste :)
