Comparitively, this cuppa kicks Twining’s Oolong’s ass.
The directions are to steep for 2-3minutes, and this is adequate. The aroma is richer, the taste is richer… just a better quality oolong.
My only complaint is that I seriously struggle opening the packet containing the teabag! When I do finally manage to tear it open, I rip the teabag as well… so then I have to use a teaball/infuser… which feels demoralizing, somehow. =P

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 45 sec

Aww, poor ripped packaging. Though, being honest, I always think that the more room that oolongs have to expand, the better.

I can see how that would be true! I really ought to be trying to rip it, then! ;D
