From Tropical Tea Company

Grown in Anshi, Fujian province, on hilltops in a landscape of winding mountain streams, gentle breezes and ideal humidity. The tea is picked in the spring at elevations over 3000 feet. This interesting oolong has khaki-colored dry leaves formed into pellets that yield a deep tawny liquor with sweet flavor and complex, multi-faceted finish. Use spring water at a temperature of 80° to 90° C. (180° to 195° F.) and multiple short steepings. Each Tropical Tea Company order helps deliver clean drinking water to a child who lacks it.

Now that I’ve had a bit more experience with oolong teas, I realize that this one might be classified as a pouchong — that is, on the greenest end of the oolong spectrum. A short pre-rinse remedied the first-steep astringency experienced earlier. A closer look at the wet leaves revealed blossoms of a blue color interspersed therein. Since the dry tea is mostly pelleted, the flowers are not evident there. I enjoyed the several steeps, perhaps a little more than before; a better understanding seemed to improve the experience. Since the Steepster overlords refuse (so far) to give us numbers on the ratings slider, I’m not sure if the rating will be come out higher than before, as intended, or lower. They also ignored my question about how the “average” rating for a tea is computed. I have filed a complaint feedback on my ratings discontent. Anyone want to chime in, go comment on it!
P.S. Oh dear, I’m more forgetful than ever! Looking at my previous notes, I see that I did the rinse and discovered the blue flowers on the first go-round. What a gag it is, getting old! :)

I agree with you on the number rating bar. It would be some much more accurate for me to place the indicator if I had numbers rather than just quarter indicators. That way, I would know for sure I’m not rating one green over a white I reviewed last week that I enjoyed much more.
