Tea #1 from the Here’s Hoping TTB
I wasn’t sure where I wanted to start with the TTB, so I just reached in and out came an oolong. I haven’t been in an oolong mood lately, but this one sounded interesting and I haven’t had tea from MIghty Leaf in years.
This smelled a lot sweeter than I was expecting as it was steeping. When I hopped on Steepster, I finally realized that this had coconut in it. That would explain what I was smelling. I’m not sure that I’ve ever had coconut in my oolong before, it gave the tea a bit of a creamy texture, but other than that I’m not sure that it really added anything. Overall, I found the flavor very watery. When I cleaned out my steeper I was surprised by how hard the tea leaves still were, which likely explains the lack of flavor.
I did attempt a resteep, but this doesn’t seem to resteep well.
