I don't like to use plastic for brewing tea (I studied polymer science).

Quality Oolong can taste really good brewed as any black tea.

I enjoyed the video, at the end I realized I was smiling while listening. He's a regular person, like me, who makes tea. Although, I am no longer in love with my plastic infuser. However, he did say it was the fastest way for him to make tea -- not for everyone. He, personally, doesn't care for the length of the traditional way and enjoys tea made in his plastic infuser. I am also very envious of that hot water thingie in the background! Nice. Love the ducky coffee mug he is sipping his tea from.

There are many on this forum who would die before sipping Oolong from a duck mug. However, everyone does things differently. Cool to see a serious tea drinker who goes about the process his own way. Thanks for posting.
