Thanks to Autumn Hearth for this!

I was in such an oolong mood today. I don’t know why. But I remembered I had this in my drawer!

It’s just what I want in an oolong: buttery, floral, a little creamy. There’s a natural sweetness to it that’s great. I’m on steep #3 (Western-style) and it’s still going strong.

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C

Mind if I ask what your steeping times where? I’m just having awful luck with oolongs.

Michelle

I did 2 min, ~2-3 min, 2 mi , 4 min. What oolongs are you trying?

Kiaharii

I have samples of Ti Kuan Yin, Dong Ding, and a milk oolong. My second steeps just suck, or maybe I don’t like oolong? I don’t know. :(

Michelle

Hm, I don’t know. I personally don’t particularly like milk oolongs, but I love TKY/DD ones. Are you using water around ~180, 190 and about 1tsp/cup?
