drank China Oolong by Twinings
3 tasting notes

As far as tea bags go, this one is not THAT bad.

I have always been a fan of Twinings before moving to my more rewarding loose-leaf tea days. Steeping just below boiling point and for 5 minutes, I can honestly say that it is decent. Yet, I am reluctant to go much farther than that. Where it is lacking is obviously in strength and subsequent flavor. I just cannot draw a lot out of it. With a lot of sugar, though, and that is perhaps the sad part, I can get my fix. Assuming that is a basic formosa oolong, it has a fine light coppery/murky liquor and and carries with it the usual toasty notes. Other than that, nothing unique about it.

For me, this is more of a go-to tea when I am home from college and do not have anything fancy to sip on. It gets me through.
