The dry tea has virtually no scent. I had to put some in my hand and literally touch my nose to it to detect anything. Even then, the scent is unremarkable.

195/1 min 45 sec. I tried to steep very lightly with this tea, but it ended up being too light and watery, so I dropped the basket back in for another thirty seconds.

It’s very, very floral. In fact, I think it’s the overdone floral that ruins the tea. The oolong itself doesn’t have time to properly steep before the floral scenting grows bitter in the cup. It’s a barely okay tea, but certainly not one I’d choose again as I like to taste the tea much more strongly than I’m able to produce with this one before it becomes too bitter.

195 °F / 90 °C 1 min, 45 sec

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
