A low-elevation, spring-plucked Taiwanese oolong, our Jade Oolong has undergone medium-tight rolling and medium roasting, which brings out both a flavor and an aroma of honey and cassia flowers. The aftertaste will linger for a few minutes after drinking, allowing one to enjoy the tea after the last drop has been consumed.
Our Jade Oolong is produced around Ming Jian village, Nantou County, located in central Taiwan. It is a hybrid varietal, brought into being in recent years by the Taiwan Tea Experimental Station. Jade is widely available and is a good, economical choice.
Low-Elevation, Medium-Roasted Taiwanese Oolong.
8 oz Cup
- Scoop a heaping teaspoon of tea into infuser.
- Heat water to 190° F (before boiling).
- Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
- Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
- Remove infuser and enjoy tea. Can be steeped multiple times.
Fill the pot 1/5 full of dry leaf, add 190° F water and allow to stand for 60 seconds before decanting and drinking. The second brew should steep for 20 seconds, the third for 45 seconds, the fourth for 1 minute 20 seconds, and the fifth for 2 minutes 20 seconds, etc. Please note that, as flavor particulates sink, decanting into a pouring pitcher and from there to cups seems to work best. Alternatively, cups can be partially filled, then topped off in reverse order, so flavor in each cup will be approximately the same.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoon of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190° F water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy. Can be steeped multiple times.
Brewing Iced Tea
Our opinion is that, as with our other supreme quality loose teas, we do not recommend serving over ice.
