Surprisingly, not impressed…usually I really enjoy Harney & Sons teas but not this one so much. I have the tea sachets for this type and maybe it’s the duration I keep the sachet in the whole time I’m enjoying my mug of tea but I find this Formosa Oolong watery and a bit too floral. I have had other Formosa Oolongs and really liked them. Luckily it does not get bitter, just a tired, watery somewhat bland and weak floral taste; the floral isn’t overpowering too much but does seem to play a mischievous cameo roll in the taste…not too pleasant. I may retry this to steep the required amount of time instead of keeping the bag in the whole time I drink…so stay tuned!

UPDATE: Still not a fave but enjoying it a little more…the parameters are still the same, haven’t changed them any because I like a strong cuppa, I guess I am just enjoying this more because maybe getting used to the taste. I do like it so my rating moved upscale; don’t know if I would buy again. I will try Harney & Sons other Oolong offerings though to compare.
