Ginseng Oolong (Wulong)
Origin: China, Fujan Province
Type: Oolong Tea
Range: Loose Leaf Tea
Taste: A wonderfully refreshing tea with sweet aromatic liquor.
Description: This tea is sometimes referred to as Kings tea, or Emperors tea. The Oolong leaves are tightly rolled and coated in a thin layer of ginseng. It makes a golden yellow brew, and has a fairly strong taste, with a sweet and slightly ginseng after taste. The combination of Oolong and ginseng make a very pleasant combination to drink.
Brewing Instructions: Infuse one tablespoon per cup / per person.
Water temperature: Water temperature 90 to 95°C for three minutes.
Be careful not to steep the tea for too long or it may become bitter. Especially when preparing white teas, green tea, oolong and black teas. Always consider the recommended steep or brew times as a maximum amount of time you should steep the tea. For stronger tea, increase the amount of tea, but not the steep time.
Reinfuse: While all teas can hold multiple infusions, Oolong teas are particularly good for this. Many people say that Oolongs don’t mature into their full flavour until the second or even third infusion, so experiment.
UK tested: We import our teas directly from trusted growers to the UK. They are then tested in the UK (unlike teas from foreign suppliers) and are pesticide free.
