A remarkable Taiwanese oolong with a medium roast, Tea Kuan Yin is lightly floral, with notes of pastry, flowers, and a little cinnamon. That's what you'll get from this flavor smile. Be sure to set the leaves aside, as this tea can be steeped multiple times - enjoy!
This particular selection hails from the lower elevations (~400m/1300ft) of Ming Jian Township, Nantou County, Taiwan.
Roasted Taiwanese Oolong.
8 oz Cup
- Scoop a heaping teaspoon of tea into infuser.
- Heat water to 195° 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 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.
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 195° 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.
