I believe the problem here is that their steeping instructions say to use 1 tsp but from my experience and every steeping “rule” I have ever seen you would normally use 2 tsp per serving.
Since Makers offers 2 serving samples I feel they have said to use 1 tsp to stretch the sample as they already have their little sample bags selected which fit perfectly into their packing. The issue is if the tea drinker does not get a full bodied flavor and cup, then it won’t get reordered.
I feel this tea is the one of the three that could have made me place an order yet because it is so thin and lacking in the flavor it should have I won’t.
I should have followed my knowledge and used the whole sample but I assumed that they knew what they were talking about in their steeping instructions.
I am not trying to sound harsh BUT if you want your tea to be as good as it can be it is better to say “use the whole sample” and let people know that if you order an oolong you will only get ONE serving versus two OR change your packaging. There are ways to fix this but I fear for them it will be an issue especially for tea drinkers who may not realize this would be a really good tasting tea if it had been steeped right!
So now I sit here with a cup that is promising but can’t deliver and one teaspoon left of a leaf that does me no good.
I actually feel this could have been an EXCELLENT tea!
Bummer.

half cup? :P

Couldn’t you use 1 tsp with 1/2 a cup, just so you can try the tea getting the full, proper flavour from it?

Azzrian

Yeah I suppose I could do that. Didn’t think of it thanks you two!

I really need to start refreshing the page before posting a comment so I stop repeating what’s already been said. Oops, sorry ’bout that. =)

Azzrian

LOL no problems :)

Well, since I can’t order from Maker’s Tea I guess it’s good to hear that I’m not missing much.

Azzrian

I requested my refund.

Autumn Hearth

Sigh, I got an early invite, before they started charging, never came, waited a month, they said they’d ship out another, still waiting.

I brewed this up last night and found it tasted like the inside of a bounty bar. Somehow having a crunchy feel to it.

I do taste the coconut. Not overpowering or fake, just an appropriate amount. A mild oolong base with some but not all of the strength of flavor I expect from oolongs – which isn’t a bad thing for me. Again, though, rating is based on what the description says and what the tasting delivered to me, not on whether or not I’d buy it again.
