Taiwan Roasted Oolong
The Taiwanese are known for their floral green oolongs but we have found a wonderful toasted nutty oolong from the heart of Taiwan. From the Bihlu tea gardens in Puli, tea master Chen has medium roasted a high mountain oolong to produce a rich full bodied nutty tea. Hints of the jasmine and gardenia still come through, balancing with the robust flavors of toasted almonds and a light fruity aftertaste.
Use between 3-5 grams of tea, about a heaping teaspoon. Pour water between 175° – 195° over the leaves and allow steeping for 1 to 3 minutes. Always remember to adjust steeping time depending on water temperature, amount of tea you have and personal flavor preference. Increase time and temperature slightly with each infusion.
