All I remember about having this one before was that it was bitter and not good. So I dropped the temp to 195° and did a shorter steep time. And I used all the reaming leaf I had so I’ll never have to have this tea again.

Which is good because, even though this was made with lower temp water and a lower steep time, there is still this unpleasant bitterness that builds in my mouth after a sip. The tea itself doesn’t taste bitter, it’s just the aftertaste that shows up a second or two after each swallow.

Meh. It’s not as horrible as I remember it being but it certainly isn’t fun. And since the bitterness just seems to be getting worse as this cools, the rest of this cup is getting tossed out.

I have held off on reviewing this because I just did not know what to say.
It is not a bad tasting tea.
I see others have reviewed this and reported it to be bitter or have strange flavors.
I have not found that, in fact I wish it did have more character.
It just kind of tastes like a very weakly brewed black tea.
It does not smell like an Oolong, and certainly has no Oolong flavors.
I have tried different brewing temps and times and also have tried increasing the amount of tea-to-cup ratio to no avail.
It is just a pleasant reddish-brown colored liquid that tastes remotely like weak tea water.
I see no reason to purchase this tea again in my future.

This is a very bitter, astringent tea. It tastes more like a black tea than the oolongs I’ve tried so far. The leaf doesn’t even look like an oolong. I’ve heard a couple of complaints about it being weak, so I brewed it for 2 mins. It sure wan’t weak, and the color came out a dark reddish brown.

If I were doing a blind taste test, I would say it was overcooked Lipton. I’ll try it again with a lighter steep time and temp to use up my leaves, but I’m not really looking forward to it.

Sometimes mere seconds can make the difference with that awful bitter taste that can come from some oolongs.. Maybe start flash steeping small amounts or something like 30 seconds.. Or maybe its just a bad tea

I was thinking thinking that it might just be temperamental. A couple people have told me that it was too weak; a couple have said that it was too strong. When I try it again, maybe I’ll just play around with the steep times and temps to see what I get.

It may well be a weird one – the picture even on the website makes it look weird. Indian high-grown white tipped Oolong? never had any before
