Description

Jade Oolong is our name for this lightly oxidized, tightly rolled, ball shaped oolong tea that is harvested twice each year in Taiwan's central highlands. Made from the Si Ji Chun, ("Four Seasons Spring") cultivar, Jade Oolong has a golden-green, medium bodied infusion with a very floral, long-lasting aromatic complexity evocative of fresh gardenia, freesia blossoms and tropical fruit. Grown at elevations of 500-850 meters above sea level in the Mingjian Village of Nantou, Taiwan.

Basic Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 2 minutes (1st infusion), 3 minutes (2nd infusion), 5 minutes (3rd infusion)

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

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.

Ingredients

Oolong tea.
