This one is from the unflavored tea box MzPriss started. I almost forgot where I placed this one. I don’t want to start forgetting where the teas are! There was a teaspoon and a half left. Always up for trying a Whispering Pines tea.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 tsp // 10 min after boiling // rinse // 1 1/2 min steep
I didn’t want to wait so long to steep this one, but I was deciding which tea to have/trying to find it. It seems steeped well enough anyway! The color of the brew is a mellow yellow. The flavor is just a tiguanyin should be: bright, fresh, sweet, buttery, a little vegetal.
Steep #2 // 5 min after boiling // 2 1/2
This steep was pure pineapple and less butter. I love the changes this one makes, as I love both butter oolongs and pineapple oolongs. A very fruity juicy sweet cup.
Steep #3 // just boiled // 3 1/2-4 min
This cup wasn’t oversteeped really (teally I just typed), but it isn’t as lovely as the first two steeps. There was more nuance in the first two steeps. I shouldn’t have steeped this cup so long. A great oolong overall, but I’ve had some good ones lately! Oolong spoiled!
