This is steeped in a small teapot (200 mL?) , I am gong fu brewing this with 4g leaf
Thank you to Mackie for the sample.

Steep 1: 70 deg. C, 10 seconds
Very light, jade oolong flavour is present, slightly buttery

Steep 2: 70 deg. C water, 45 secpnds
Stronger flavour, milk flavour is starting to come out, but this tea is extremely astringent

steep 3: boiling water, 8 seconds
hmm flavour is weak again but astringency is back, nothing really stands out (no floral, fruity, creamy notes), flavour is pretty unremarkable and generic

Steep 4: boiling water, 45 seconds
Astringency is back. Apparently short steep times give you little flavour, and longer ones are overpowered by astringency

I’m going to end things here. This is unimpressive and there are many better milk oolongs out there for a similar price. Don’t waste your time with this one.

Flavors: Butter, Milk

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
