Followed the advice of my new friends here on Steepster and brewed at a lower temp and for less time than the brewing instructions suggested. I’d been finding it too astringent. 1st infusion 2.5 minutes at 185, 2nd infusion 3 minutes at 185. Both infusions were not astringent at all, so I guess I’m on the right track to solving my problem. Now, though, I found it pretty flavorless. Probably because it’s pretty cheap tea!

This was my first time brewing oolong at home and I am glad that I did not screw it up! I don’t have a thermometer that is suitable for testing water for tea brewing, so I had to guess with this tea, which is supposed to be brewed at about 190F instead of boiling.
I was not impressed with the appearance of the dry leaves, which included a lot of stems. The catalog photo looked nothing like what was in the pouch. Fortunately, this did not appear to have a negative effect on the tea when it was brewed.
