There weren’t any directions on the teabag packaging, so I didn’t know how long to steep this, and at which water temperature I should do so. The resulting tea was fairly mild, with a mahogany-honey color, and a smooth feeling on the palate. This isn’t a particularly aromatic tea, and the taste is fairly average. I would have probably enjoyed this one better if I would have steeped it a bit more; the texture was a bit watery for my tastes.
I think I’m starting to really enjoy oolongs. I can’t wait to try a loose leaf variety; they seem to have the robust flavors of black teas, with the lightness and easy drinkability of the greens. Tell me if I’m wrong!As for the weight-loss properties, I’m really not interested. I’m actually trying to gain weight, not lose it, so I’m probably going to steer clear of this one for a while.
