For this batch we used 23 grams (more than the typical 15 g of DavidsTea) of Oolong tea from Rainbow Grocery.

We first blamed the light color on the fact that our first loose leaf Oolong was from Rainbow Grocery but DavidsTea Oolong used in our next batch was no darker. We harvested this on 9/16 and flavored 4 bottles, #91-94 with just 1 tbsp of sugar. It tasted light and still sweet so we’re looking forward to trying it after a nine day second fermentation.
