Show Description

Smooth and slightly sweet; toasty with a touch of dryness.

Oolong means semi oxidized. After rolling, the tea is allowed to ferment only until the edges of the leaves start to turn brown. The tea is then fired which arrests the oxidizing process and captures the interesting character associated with Oolong tea.

Extra Info:

In Taiwan, producing oolong tea involves highly specialized skills in the control of the withering, oxidation and firing. A slight variance in any of these gives each variety a distinctive aroma, flavor, color and finish.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 190-200°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 2 minutes.

Other Brewing Options:

Oolongs teas are best enjoyed when the leaves are briefly infused with hot water, which is then poured off. The tea is then reinfused and tea is poured to the guests after about 1 minute. The leaves may be reinfused several times, with each resulting infusion yielding different liquor from the proceeding cup.

Ingredients:

Formosa oolong tea,

Origin:

Taiwan

They look good enough to eat. When brewed, they render a medium oolong with red-brown liquor and an aroma of black tea and earth. The taste is somewhere between black and green. Smooth and delicious, with some earthy notes underneath. Second infusion is as good as first, with very subtle peach and flower notes coming forward. This is one to savor in the aroma as well as the more subtle flavor, because they could be from two different teas.

This was my second order of this tea and I found myself reaching for it as a first choice as an everyday tea more often the longer I had some around. Easy to brew, never bitter if brewed too long. Enjoyed the second infusion as well or more than the first and often steeped it a third time depending on how much tea I started with ( usually 2 heaping tsp.'s for a 12oz. pot. My only wish for a better tea is if it was organic.

Let me start by saying that I've tried several bagged oolongs, including high-end organics, and each time was left unimpressed. This white-tip oolong creates a beautiful cup of tea. I entirely agree with Gene's description, and would simply add that with the addition of a few leaves each time, it can easily yield 4 infusions, each bringing out different subtle overtones.
