Oh, silly, silly, pyramid tea prison.

Your mesh is too fine to take on water rapidly. Your mesh is too fine to allow a good agitation of the water past the leaves.

Oddly, the leaf in there must be pretty good, because in spite of all these obstacles, the resultant cup is actually neither 2D nor weak.

This is a good standard bagged Formosa Oolong. I steeped earlier and had an emergency and am drinking it cold now…not too shabby

Once again utilising my Tea Forte Cafe Cup, Tea Forte Tea Tray, and Tea Forte Tea Timer iPhone application, I start out steeping this tea for a recommended average of 3 minutes. The leaves inside the pyramid infuser look very broken up. This worries me a bit, but not being one to judge a tea from its appearance (at least not completely), I wait patiently for the steeping to finish.

The liquor has steeped to a milk-chocolate brown. Nutty smells waft up from the cup. This tea smells quite nutty. In the aroma, there even appears to be some subdued cocoa notes. Taking my first sip, it appears that three minutes was long enough to steep this tea. Perhaps even a bit too long.

The taste is much smoother than the smell would lead one to believe. Unlike many Formosa oolongs I have tried, this one slips nicely over the tongue, ending in an expressive aftertaste. Robust is a good descriptor for this tea. Oolongs are known to be warming to the body, and this one seems to be the epitome of that factoid.

My tea time was enjoyable, thanks to this tea. It was a good representation of a decent Formosa oolong. On my personal enjoyment scale, I rate it an 80/100.

Did you use boiling water? I’ve heard that that can wreck some oolong teas.
