Perfect as a sun tea or, as your afternoon tea, this earthy Oolong with natural plum flavor makes a winning combination.
The Chinese were the first to cultivate the plum fruit, and revered it as a symbol of love and good fortune. This reverence for the plum is not limited to China. In the United States, the fruit has its own holiday, National Plum Pudding day on February 12th. Across the Pacific in Japan, the whole month of February is dedicated to the fruit since it blossoms during that month. In many parts of Europe wild plum trees grow in great quantities and living near a grove of them is thought to increase fertility.
Infuse a tablespoon of leaves in a small pot for just about a minute. The tea is then re-infused and served 2 or 3 more times. Each infusion yields a different liquor and experience from the proceeding cup.
