I’ve been wanting oolong all week! And this is the one I have not had in a while. With this cold, it just did not seem fair to try any of the oolongs I have that I have not truly tried yet.
My poor nose is stuffing up faster than I can empty it and I am FREEZING! God I wish there were meds in the house to take the stuffiness away and let me get back to sleep – I just hope this tea is helpful!
Steepings so far: 2
I made the mistake of leaving this tea in the cupboard at the daycare. Not friendly! Especially after the office bought everyone Noodle Box for the Summer Staff Meeting! I am still feeling the affects of that, but hopefully I will make it to the Daycare to grab this before anything embarassing happens… I really need to just not order the foods they offer.
I am bloaty and cranky and could really used the soothing probiotic nature of this tea right now. It should live in my purse for the next little while! It really should!

There is something to be said about fragrant tea and an upset tummy. By the second infusion of this Oolong, I was starting to feel less bloaty, and grumpy by far.
Maybe it is the new tea basket I have, or maybe it is all the practice steeping teas that is making the process not only easy but somewhat enjoyable. I thought Oolongs were not for me, but I think tonight I might actually manage a third steeping.
Steep 1: Fragrant and deliciously fruity as well as marked by that wonderous gold colour that makes safflowers so popular.
Steep 2: Still fragrant, not as fruity, but a subtle creaminess is starting to come through. Still a delightful golden colour, like the rays of the sun.
Steep 3: I am not a fan of the third steeping. It seems more like coloured water, which is in direct contradiction to the scent and vivid colour – maybe it is the heat of the liquid in cup but this tea is still working to make me feel a lot better than last night!
