Another from the Travelling Tea Box! I think I prepared this one with water that was a bit too hot, but that’s okay. It was still what you’d expect from an oolong. I did a 30 second rinse and then a 3 minute steep.
This delicate, high quality Oolong from Indonesia is comparable to the best Green Oolongs from Taiwan. Skilled processing and high-altitude cultivation delivers a fragrantly floral, jade-green color. The taste is a mild grassiness that gives way to lush, buttery floral and vanilla notes sure to make a lasting impression on your palate.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (1 heaping teaspoons) per 8oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 90°C/194°F. Allow to brew 2 min.
