Alishan Light Roast Oolong
A true high mountain delight, this rendition of Taiwanese oolong will tickle all your tea fancies. We are so proud to offer this 2017 spring-picked beauty.
Sweet aroma, hinting at lilac and peach. Soft and full flavor, coating the tongue with a gentle creaminess. Sugar cane and floral notes alongside a vanilla essence and mellow, slight spice, slightly vegetal. A true high mountain classic flavor.
You don't want to miss this, tea expert or tea novice. This is joy in a cup. This is joy in many cups!
We highly recommend doing one rinse of 5-10 seconds (at 195 degrees) and then beginning with 15-20 second infusions for a bit before slowly increasing steeping time. It is not unusual to get 10 to 15 steepings out of this tea when prepared gongfu cha style.
- Oolong tea should be given a 5 to 10 second rinse with the same temperature water as used for brewing. This warms the pot and primes the leaf, readying it for optimal flavor extraction. 195˚ F water temperature.
- Use 1 teaspoon per 8oz. of filtered water
- Recommended first steeping of 30 seconds. Add 30 seconds for each subsequent infusion up to 3 minutes.
- Tea brewing is meant to be a joyful exploration. There are no hard and fast rules. Experiment with the quantity of tea that you use, and steeping times. Enjoy discovering what your preferences are. They may change day to day.
