Tasting Notes

Smooth with a woody nuttiness and notes of cherry and sweet fruit. Full bodied and complex while maintaining the brightness and soft tannins of a Spring tea.

Quantity

Use 2 - 4g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion wash the leaf with 100°C (212°F) water, then use the same (slightly cooled) water to infuse.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least three times.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Taiwan

Organic Oolong

The tea can be infused several times to reveal incredible subtleties of flavour. We recommend infusing the leaf in small amounts of hot water with a high leaf to water ratio, and infusing many times rather than making one large pot. In this way you will uncover countless flavours.

Use an inch of hot water at 100 degrees to rapidly “wash” the leaf for a few seconds. You can discard this first brew. This opens out the rolled leaf and allows the water to penetrate.
Subsequent infusions are best made at high temperature but rapidly - just 20 - 30 seconds. You don’t need to reheat the water as you go – the softened leaf will require lower temperatures. In all we recommend at least six steps to allow the leaf to completely open out and reveal all its beauty.

You can also enjoy one teaspoon of leaves all day- coming back to the same pot and re-infusing it – but in this instance re-heat the water to 90°C (194°F).
