A fairly standard rolled-leaf oolong: tasty and a good value. This is light and very crisp; it almost has a lemony ‘clean’ feel to it. The wet leaves have a slight buttery scent to them, but that doesn’t carry over into the liquid itself: both the smell and the taste are flowery.

This this doesn’t have the depth or tastiness of many higher-quality rolled-leaf oolongs, it’s good and the price is very fair. I got a lot of infusions from these leaves — sometimes 8 or 9 — but I like my tea light (and arguably weak) so others might prefer fewer.

175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec

User experience guy and web developer. I started drinking loose-leaf tea in 2005, and grew to love the lighter, smoother styles of tea.

I’m really more of an “OolongTeaSteve”, but “GreenTeaSteve” sounds better. :-) I’m also into craft beer, wine, & dark chocolate.
