I steeped about half the sample packet (or a little over half) in about 10 ounces of water at 212 degrees for about 6 minutes. It smells indisputably delicious as it starts to brew. Buttery, creamy, smooth, and rich. Also a tiny bit seaweedy/vegetal/grassy, but that’s subsumed by the butteriness. The packet says to brew 4-10 minutes, which means it’s probably great for resteeping since you only need to steep it about 5-6 minutes in my experience (and with a little less water it would be less).

It was screaming for a 2nd infusion so I tried it. The 2nd infusion smelled more buttery and less sweet but also more Earthy but not as smooth. I think I prefer the creaminess of the first infusion but I certainly give a thumbs up for the differences between the two infusions and the unique texture and taste of this milk oolong!
