Is TKY (and other oolongs) supposed to taste astringent? I tried some at a place here in Melbourne called Oriental Teahouse (they are a chain here in Aus), but despite their name and their boasting of knowledge and their being Chinese owned
, they don't seem to be such experts. Their tea always comes in quite big glass infuser cups with very hot water. Could their standard brewing method be the cause of it tasting so astringent that even with 3 drops of stevia it was barely drinkable for me? Or am I just not used to it?
