The Wuyi Mountains are the birthplace of oolong tea and the Shui Xian "Water Sprite" tea bush cultivar. This sloping, mountainous appellation, with mineral-rich soils, produces teas with a smooth mouthfeel and pleasant aftertaste. Wuyi teas are classically roasted to develop a sweet, caramelized flavor.

Tasting Notes: Classic roasted profile with notes of raisin and orchid, and a smooth, mellow sweetness

Ingredients: Organic oolong tea.

Additional Info: Oolong tea artisans, like boutique winemakers, bring forth the appellation characters of their teas through traditional crafting techniques. Each oolong tea's distinctive style reflects its place of origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.

This tea originates in Fujian, China.

Standard Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 200°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Times: 3-4 minutes (1st infusion), 5 minutes (2nd infusion)

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Guywan or a Yixing teapot.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

The Wuyi Oolong is, in a sense, rustic. My first shot at the Wuyi was disrespectful. I thought I could simply steep sloppily and drink and... of course, I got just what I asked for. Instead, the second and third times I tried doing things the right way. I took my time, prepared the tea with intention and found it to be very agreeable. The taste is long, not lacking in astringency, but not overbearing either. One leaves with the feel of a well-portioned meal; not too filling, not too little.

Sweet tasting, not too strong. Also not too flowery/fragrant. Very pleasant, also on subsequent brewings. Doesn't want to be brewed too long, though. Also not too high a temperature.
