Even with no decaf-ing, and a 3 min steep at 195F, I’m still not thrilled. Less astringent this time, but it’s just very bland for a flavored black tea.

30 second decaffeination rinse. First sip way more astringent than I expected. Added a little half & half and 1 packet of stevia, still not thrilled. I’m going to try again tomorrow morning and see how the flavor is with no decaf time, and a 3 minute steep.

Soft floral notes, with a warm undertone. Nice mid fermented oolong. A pinch of sugar to bring out the floral more. Brewed in a Teavana Perfect Teamaker(for shame, I know better). I should have used my kyusu, or at least my yixing.
