I have never tasted an oolong before, but this seemed like a good starter. The leaves are a bright green and have a deep smell. After brewing it’s smell was very buttery and, though I might be crazy, reminded me of my French bread dough right before I pop it in the oven. My roomie assures me I am crazy and it has a floral smell, reminding her of lantana flowers. Her nose is probably better than mine. It is a very light color but the taste was pronounced, mostly it tasted like it smelled.
The second steep I did not use an infuser, because it looked like my basket was to small for the leaves. I think it was for the best, because the tea expanded quite a bit more, and the liquid was darker when poured. It tasted about the same, but with more spinach-y flavors to it.
The third steep had the most vegetal taste. I found all three steeps to be very flavorful, and thought this tea was a great intro into oolongs.
