I used two Steepster Select sample packs in a 170 teapot. The very soft aromas out of the package are reminiscent of snapdragon and hay. I brewed this for a coworker and myself so I married the first two steeps. The brewed aromas are more pronounced with a hint of sugar cookie in the air. The flavor is bountiful of lilac? gardenia? oh what is the flowers name? Great mouth feel and a superb golden color soup.

3rd and 4th infusions are even better and it continued to steep out for 10 times before trailing off.

All in all not a bad representation of a green oolong that can be your every day or special something. I would add that the sample pack says to brew at 200F for 3 minutes for what I’m assuming is a 4g pack, yet the website calls for boiling water. There is also instruction to use short steepings in the descriptive paragraph. I like how some sites give directions for both Gong Fu and Western preparation. Makes it easier for the not so sure, new to tea crowd like I was.
