Show Description

The natural plum flavor complements the Wuyi Mountain dark oolong that this tea is made with. Coming together to produce a nutty, roasted flavor with sweet plum overtones.

Extra Info:

The Chinese were the first to cultivate the plum fruit, and revered it as a symbol of love and good fortune. This reverence for the plum is not limited to China. In the United States, the fruit has its own holiday, National Plum Pudding day on February 12th. Across the Pacific in Japan, the whole month of February is dedicated to the fruit since it blossoms during that month. In many parts of Europe wild plum trees grow in great quantities and living near a grove of them is thought to increase fertility.

Ingredients

Wuyi oolong, Natural flavors.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 185°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.

Other Brewing Options:

Infuse a tablespoon of leaves in a small pot for just about a minute. The tea is then re-infused and served 2 or 3 more times. Each infusion yields a different liquor and experience from the proceeding cup.

Love this tea…wasn't sure how'd I feel about plum flavor but this is delicious. I have been drinking it hot and today, as it has warmed up, I tried it iced. Once again, delicious. I also bought a tin w/the lovely label on it and now am hooked on getting more of my favorite teas in a tin. It makes it so easy to pick out the tea w/o having to read a small label and these tins are far cheaper then any other tea company! Don't tell David as he might raise the price!

'An exceptional blend in NMTC's catalog. The flavor as previously stated is not too robust and not too mellow, but very smooth with a perfect balance of the plum flavor. It quickly became one of my favorite blends when I encountered this tea some time ago locally. A must try for all tea drinkers, especially for those who enjoy oolong. The great thing about NMTC's teas is that they can be ordered and shipped out to you with very prompt service so that you don't have to go without your favorite teas. The service is timely and efficient.

Haven't tried it hot yet, but 1/4 c leaves to 1 gallon of water, refrigerated overnight, yields a GREAT iced tea. Very refreshing, lovely, summertime drink.

I love this as an afternoon tea. Lovely mellow flavor with a hint of plum, and just enough caffeine to kick-start the second half of your day without sending your system into overdrive. This stuff got me through the last couple months of massage school, when all I wanted to do in the afternoons was forget homework and sleep.

I love Oolongs and the thought of adding a flavor to that tea was nuts- until David introduced me to this tea. I use this for an extraordinary Iced tea in the warm months. It's also a thermos favorite while climbing, hiking, boating - anything outdoors. It is the perfect Oolong where you need a little boost to Oolong's subtle flavors to meet the environment. Now, about the "plum" flavor: that's the real flavor. It is derived from the fruit!

I inquired about an Oolong tea at my visit to your store and this one came highly recommended. It is now one of my favorites. Hot or cold, the slight plum flavor is perfect. This Plum Oolong and Night of the Iguana are my favorites. Adios to buying my tea at Whole Foods. I'm hooked on NM Tea Company, Thank you for your great tea options.

When I opened the bag of the Plum Oolong, my first thought was "NOOOO"! It smelled more floral than fruity, almost on the side of perfume. But upon tasting after brewing, the flavor was a "delicate" plum. I can't say I LOVE this tea, but I do like the tea. I enjoy oolong teas and every once in awhile I like to change up the regular with a different flavor. The Plum Oolong will fall into this category.

DEFINITELY floraly smelling and almost a deal breaker, but I'm so glad I tried it! I did an initial couple second infusion and poured the water off before steeping for 4 minutes. The scent was absolute heaven, light but not too strong, and floral. The flavor of the plum hits up front - fruity! - but doesn't overpower. This tea is absolutely stunning and delicious and smooth as silk. I highly recommend it for a nice summery change from your regular Oolong drinking.
