Nope, cold steeping doesn’t make it all fruity and awesome. More tea to water does it!
BUT this is a great way to bring out the oolong. It’s still really fruity, but it doesn’t scream pear like it did to me the first time.
The oolong being more prominent is really nice though. This tea has a mix of green and dark oolong and I kind of love the way they blend. I’m not a fan of the more oxidized oolongs I’ve had so far, although I really want to like them, so this is kind of easier for me to handle. It’s got those roasty flavors but still tastes vegetal.
I left the leaves in the pitcher since I do like to cold steep oolong as long as possible, so it’ll be interesting to see how this tastes in 6 hours too!
