Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

 

I found this to be a surprisingly good oolong. A very nice jade oolong with lots of fruit and floral notes. I'll be reordering

This oolong tea has a reach, slightly honey taste.

This is OK, pretty nice really in the bigger scheme of teas, but a little more on the green end of the oolong spectrum than is my preference.
