We are thrilled to have a medium roast rendition of one of our favorite Oolongs, Alishan.  Taking on some slightly richer characteristics than the original light roast, this expression of Alishan leans into more caramelized, nutty, and dried stone fruit aromatics.  Flavor profiles of Kettle Corn, Maple, Butter, and Toffee are carried through a sweet liquor that takes on hues of amber and gold.   

This is a great tea to taste side by side with its lighter counterpart.  It is also a specialty small batch sold only in 8.8 oz. (250 gram) packages, so enjoy while you can! 

Ingredients

Hand-picked, high-elevation, lightly-oxidized, medium roasted Taiwanese oolong.


Brewing Instructions

8 oz Cup

  1. Scoop a level teaspoon of tea into infuser.
  2. Heat water to 195° F (before boiling).
  3. Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
  4. Steep tea for 3-4 minutes (depending on taste preference).
  5. Remove infuser and enjoy tea. Can be steeped multiple times.

Gong-Fu

Fill the pot 1/5 full of dry leaf, add 195° 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.

Potful

Simply add to your infuser one level teaspoon of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 195° F water and let it steep for 3 to 4 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.
