The recommended serving for this is 1 Tbsp., but I just used a tsp. because (a) all I’ve got since my steeper went out of commission is a little basket strainer that fits in the top of the cup, and there’s no way 1 Tbsp of rolled oolong leaves would fit in it once the water hit them and (b) I wasn’t keen to use the whole tin in one go.

Now that I’m trying it, a Tbsp still seems unnecessary, but maybe 1.5 tsp would have been good. It is just slightly on the weak side. That aside, the flavor is great, very smooth with that classic Taiwanese honey-floral oolong taste. A bit of mellow pinenut flavor too. There are few things as comforting as a honeyish oolong.

Happiness Is:
green tea
black tea
lots and lots of oolong!
vanilla things

Not Really My Style:
spices (except for ginger. ginger rocks)
chai (because, you know, the spices)
rooibos (I don’t get it. Everyone seems psyched for it. Not me).
those smoky teas, like lapsang souchong, though once in a while I’ll need something really strong and then I like them.
