Getting more flowers this time, and it’s getting better as it cools. I’m much more impressed than the last time I made this, though the flavor is still relatively weak for an oolong.
And now I’m losing the flowers as it cools more – boo. There seems to be a sweet spot for drinking temp. Still bumping the rating a little.
Steep 2: ~3 minutes. The liqueur is the same color, a yellow so pale I’d almost call it cream.
Steep 3: ~4 minutes. Still good color, but the flavor is getting very mild. If I liked white teas, I might continue with this, and I’ll probably give it one last long steep, but I think these leaves are mostly tapped, for my taste.
