Your FAQs, Answered
For Monkey Picked Oolong
The name "Monkey Picked Oolong" represents the high quality of this rare oolong tea. It is hand-picked from the very top leaves of tea bushes grown in higher-elevation gardens.
Oolong teas should be steeped for 2-3 minutes at a temperature of 200°F or 93°C.
Unlike other teas, oolong tea can be re-steeped to make multiple cups. With each re-steep, different flavour characteristics emerge that alter the teas natural palate, creating a new tasting experience for you to enjoy. Oolong teas are exquisite to experience in a yixing tea pot.
Oolong tea does contain caffeine. To illustrate, one would need to drink approximately 4 cups of oolong tea to equal the same amount of caffeine as 1 cup of drip coffee.

Not a good year
I have drank this tea for years and regularly buy Monkey Picked from here. The past buys have been excellent. However, this years is weak with a very different taste. I hope that it was just from a poor years harvest instead of from a different area, processor or process. .. And hoping my next buy will be the old Monkey Picked I'm used to and have drank for years.
