Best made not too strong

I am an oolong virgin, so if you're not then maybe you disagree :)
I originally tried it as a bag (a sample from Shibui). It didn't seem to colour terribly quickly so I left it in, like you might do with a herbal. It was bloody lovely - really refreshing and light. So I ordered some loose. I have a Shibui teapot so I used that. But I think I made it too strong. Or I just wasn't used to oolong and the taste was a bit challenging for me! Since then I've made it much weaker (a heaped teaspoon) and I love it like that.
