      This tea was just alright to me brewed with the 3.5 grams included in my communiTEA packet in about 14 oz of water at the recommended 180 degrees for 3 minutes. The flavor was unfortunately too light for my liking, although I did like the floral notes that were present. The resteep was similarly faint, but still decent. I think this would be a good tea for gong fu style brewing since there is a lower amount of water used and the flavor comes out less diluted, and may try it that way in the future.

      I'm a little surprised at how much I love this tea. It's not complicated/exciting with all kinds of flavors, but it's really an amazing tea anyway. It has the perfect body and is just the right amount of floral. It tastes like a green tea to me. The whole family liked it, which is saying something!

      The dry tea had a hay-like scent. The little rolled leaves expanded so quickly, and took up so much room in my steeper - if all you have is a tea ball, you're probably better off just letting it steep directly in the cup then straining - this tea needs space to grow. The taste and smell after steeping was very floral. The flavor held strong for 2 steeps, and probably would've done for a third and even fourth, but floral isn't my favorite flavor note so I stopped at 2.

      Steeped (1) 200F 3.5min, (2) 2.5min

      This tea feels like spring. It's fun to watch the leaves unfurl and the resulting tea is a springy pale green color. The taste is light and a bit floral while being smooth and refreshing.

      If you like soft, rounded oolongs with a sense of complexity, let this be your next buy. It's smooth and floral without tipping the scales toward the "flavored tea" category. If you like floral teas but are kinda burnt out on them then I absolutely have the tea for you.

      This is a very smooth, mellow tea good for unwinding after a long day at the clinic. Lightly floral and close in flavor to jasmine tea, but not exactly the same.

      Pretty good tea, took a while to wake up and the full flavor came out on the second steep. Third steep I did for 30 seconds at 180F and that was very rich and deep in terms of flavor. Solid oolong

      Beautiful soft oolong which is almost a cross between green and white tea. Reminds me of spring in this cold winter day.

      Nice floral oolong. Brews into a green-gold liquor. Very aromatic of flowers. The taste is smooth, tiny bit of mineral taste, and a green flavor. Clean finish and very refreshing.

      A very inexpensive rolled pouchong. Very floral and fragrant, vegetal notes. Worth a try.

      Good, but very mild and delicate. I had to brew it longer in order to really taste it.

      This one is difficult to get right - if steeped a couple seconds too long it gets very bitter and a couple seconds too short and it is just slightly flowery hot water. It's definitely very floral and light, but was a bit too one-note for an oolong for me.

      Top notch oolong. It's refreshing, and takes well to multiple steepings.
