Blue Spring Oolong
Grown in Anshi, Fujian province, on hilltops in a landscape of winding mountain streams, gentle breezes and ideal humidity. The tea is picked in the spring at elevations over 3000 feet. This interesting oolong has khaki-colored dry leaves formed into pellets that yield a deep tawny liquor with sweet flavor and complex, multi-faceted finish. Use spring water at a temperature of 80° to 90° C. (180° to 195° F.) and multiple short steepings. Each Tropical Tea Company order helps deliver clean drinking water to a child who lacks it.
