Oolong tea .Casbah Cafe

Casbah Cafe, yeah the one on sunset in silverlake,

she got me the wrong oolong, so i dont know the long chinese name, but it was the $3 one

they used just boiling water on the oolong so its probably not the best situation to taste this tea…

flavor: 3.3/7, first 3min infusion had a indiscernible mouthfeel probably due to overbrewing from the hot water, with a strong sweet aftertaste in the pharynx,
subsequent brewings had a greenish feel, reminiscent of baozhong

  1. It’s always sad when people in a tea shop don’t brew the tea properly!

    The thing that I find amusing is that I’ve seen it go both ways…sometimes they pour boiling water over green, white, or oolong teas, whereas other times they will fill up a cup of water and set the teabag on the side, sometimes waiting long enough before they give it to you that it is far from boiling temperature!
