Imperial Gold Organic
Imperial Gold Oolong tea is one of the glories of the China Oolong family. I don’t think that I have ever had anyone revisit the store and declare that they have been anything but enthralled with this excellent tea. One of what is known today as the ‘Green Oolongs’, or similarly, ‘Orchid Oolongs’, Imperial Gold is as valuable in taste as its name indicates.
Imperial Gold Oolong brews perfectly every time; no matter how one challenges it, Imperial Gold Oolong infuses gracefully, with not a trace of harshness or astringency.
Imperial Gold does prefer water that is ‘off the boil’, in which case you will find that it infuses repeatedly, offering up more flavour than any leaf tea has a right to contain. I find that Imperial Gold continues to be a tea that I reach for, as I would an old friend.
Steep 2-5 infusions at 30-90 seconds each
