From Tealet

This type of tea has a famous history, but this form of art tradition is almost lost in the world. It’s story is deep and rich. The Goe family has been growing and processing oolong tea for hundreds of years. A newer generation led by grower Lin that has turned towards processing heavily oxidized teas versus traditional lightly oxidized High Mountain Oolong. Grower Lin learned about the art of Taiwanese black teas from Tea Master Aones who has won awards from Taiwan Tea Competition and the Development and Extension of Multiple Tea Products. He has now gone on to popularize the new breed of black tea TTES no. 18 and no. 21. Grower Lin has introduced innovative technology to their processing such as Aerodymaics during the withering process.

HOW TO BREW
Use 2 grams (1 teaspoon dried tea leaves) for 8 fl. oz. water in your favorite teapot or infuser (use bottled drinking water for best flavor, let boil and steep at 190F). Steep for 1.5 minutes. Leaves may be infused at least 3 times.

These are suggested brewing instructions. We encourage you to experiment and share your own brewing methods as you continue to grow in the tea culture. If you’re new to tea this is a good way to start.

The recommended serving for this is 1 Tbsp., but I just used a tsp. because (a) all I’ve got since my steeper went out of commission is a little basket strainer that fits in the top of the cup, and there’s no way 1 Tbsp of rolled oolong leaves would fit in it once the water hit them and (b) I wasn’t keen to use the whole tin in one go.

Now that I’m trying it, a Tbsp still seems unnecessary, but maybe 1.5 tsp would have been good. It is just slightly on the weak side. That aside, the flavor is great, very smooth with that classic Taiwanese honey-floral oolong taste. A bit of mellow pinenut flavor too. There are few things as comforting as a honeyish oolong.

Oolongtastic!

Love this oolong – it’s got amazing texture with lots of thick creamy fluff with a light finish. The creamy mouth feel lingers for a long time too! The flavor is sweet with buttery, pine nuts, and orchid notes. Later infusions there is a bit of dryness, but keeps the flavor going.
