Had a very heavy Bavarian meal (a fried egg sitting atop a fry-up of different meats, vegetables and potatoes), and the only thing I wanted afterwards was to come home and brew up some tea. I'd already made one infusion of Formosa Oolong in the afternoon, so I brewed it again and only then was the evening complete.
Have been reading quite a lot about Oolong lately, and the thing that's almost always mentioned is that it's not bitter. That's certainly accurate. Seems that most of the ones my tea-seller offers are the more oxidised and at least closer to black tea.
When I read about others' experiences with Oolong, they sound (and the pictures appear) as if they're the less-oxidised variety. Closer to green tea. Am very curious to find more of these Oolongs.
The photos of these very green Oolongs on other blogs make it all the more obvious that I'm drinking another animal entirely. The leaves of mine after three or four infusions and very brown and tired looking. Off to do some online tea shopping.
