Description

Description:

Oolong means semi fermented. 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 fermenting process and captures the interesting character associated with Oolong tea. 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.

Preparation:

  • HOT TEA: put 6-8 pearls for each 7-9 oz/200-260ml of water in the teapot. Pour freshly biled water over tea. Steep 3-7 min. Milk & Sugar are NOT recommended.
  • ICED TEA: (1L/QT): 25-30 pearls into teapot. Pour 315ml boiling water on tea. Steep 5 min. Quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water Pour into pitcher straining tea. Add ice, top-up ith cold water, garnish & sweeten to taste.

Additional Info:

It is worth noting that in Taiwan, the making of oolong tea is regarded as a precious art that requires years of training. From the nursing of a seedling, to planting, to nourishing the bushes, to properly selecting the best time to pluck the leaves, the husbandry of the tea farmer is a legacy passed down from many generations. It is felt that only the application of years of dedicated study and practice, combined with the unique character of Taiwan tealeaves, can provide the exceptional quality oolong teas that have made the island famous for its teas.
