I typically steep oolong tea at a maximum of three minutes, but this one called for four. The reason I opted to steep longer is because once the tea is open, it gives a very strong citrus scent. This is because it appears to be composed mainly of everything else, and there is very little oolong tea.

Steeping gives off a darker lemony scent, the darker parts could be due to the jasmine flowers, as most flowers tend to make a tea darker.

The taste reflects what the blend is mainly composed of, having a very overpowering yet fresh lemon/citrus flavor with a tinge of jasmine. There is a grounding flavor of flowery oolong beneath everything else, which is a welcoming surprise.

I do wish the oolong tea would surprise me more, as this nothing more than a typical dark lemon/citrus tea. It is not bad, but does not leave much to the imagination. And if the name says oolong, then there should be more oolong.
