MAKE THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA
Your FAQs, Answered
For High Mountain Oolong
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.
Very flavorful and balanced
Great professional packaging. Instructions clear. Good description. The tea overall was enjoyable and a good balance of flavor.
A little goes a long way
I'm happy I tried this Oolong. I put a very small about of leaves and the bloomed and expanded to fill most of the pot. So for 80grams it's a fresh full leaf tea. The other oolongs are probably just as nice. I would probably try with another Oolong variety to see if I notice any differences. The first pour is obviously more caffeine forward than the 2nd pour, the tea got a little bitter near the end of the pot but this was my first batch and may have put many leaves in. On my 3'rd pour now... So I can get about 3 small pots of tea from a very small about of leaves. The 3rd pour is Super light in flavor but you still get some oolong color in the water.
One of my favourite tea
High mountain tea is one of my favourites, along with iron goddess and tung ting. It is very fragrant and has mild taste. However, the second time I brewed it, it tasted almost bland.
