These “milk oolongs” just didn’t do it for me, but I’ll preface that by saying I don’t have a gaiwan. I ordered one today from Jing’s Tea Shop…a 125cc model I think, so I may try these “milky” ones again later after I get my cup. As it is, I tried the sample size with about 10-12 ounces water and steeped for 5 minutes at 195F. Just not the amount of flavor I am looking for…too mild. I think the sample sizes are 7 grams. If anyone has an estimate of steeping times and amount of tea for my new gaiwan when I get it in about two weeks, I am all ears. :)

195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 0 sec

Transitioning from military and spending the afternoons shuttling the kids and drinking tea…mostly Japanese and Chinese green/oolong and Taiwanese oolong. Occasionally imbibing in a Teavana herbal blend at night.

My cupboard is completely up to date. Currently, I am drinking lots of tea from Seven Cups and Den’s.
