|"I did find the orange flavor to be a little harsh in the aftertaste especially. The oolong base isn't the best and its murky flavor comes through in the aftertaste as well."|
I used a heaping teaspoon of tea leaf to 8 ounces of water heated to 195 degrees and steeped for four minutes.
I found the taste of this oolong to be kind of murky and "dusty" without sweetener added and didn't particularly care for it much. With sweetener added it was much tastier. The orange flavor shines through. The orange is clean and distinctly orange in flavor; there's none of the sherbet flavor or creamsicle in the scent to be discerned in the taste. The flavoring is quite naturally orange tasting, though I did find it to be a little harsh in the aftertaste especially. The oolong base isn't the best and its murky flavor (as opposed to crisp and clear in taste, I suppose) comes through in the aftertaste as well.
The second infusion is better all around. The orange is a little less oily sharp and essential tasting. The oolong is mellowed, too, less overtly murky and dusty tasting. Overall, this was not my favorite flavored oolong.
