I steeped it with quick 20 secs steeps, while increasing the steeping time after each steep. I tried this with my glass teapot and also my purple clay teapot.
The leaves were pretty much chopped or like teabag mulch when I got it as a sample. Had a hard time cleaning afterwards…
As for the taste, it’s mildly toasty and a touch of something sweet, almost. But it’s pretty much your everyday oolong. Nothing special. Good in bulk.
I compared it to Teahaus farmosa oolongs, and this was much more flavorful than Teahaus’.
