Oolong Black Tea
Soft and mellow…easy to drink, hard to resist. Also, we have a blog post on oolong teas titled oolongs.
Fujian province in China is the home of Oolong varieties of tea. Still, production began in Taiwan during the 1850s when tea planters from Fujian immigrated to Formosa’s small island nation. The Dung Ti Mountains in central Taiwan have very fertile slopes where some of the finest tea plantations produce excellent Oolong tea. Both of our Oolong teas, Aronia Oolong and Dung Ding Oolong, are from Taiwan.
Brewing Instructions for Aronia Oolong Black Tea
Steep this Aronia Oolong black tea multiple times as loose leaf teas have far more flavor than traditional tea bags due to the superior quality and freshness. Tea strength is a personal decision, so please experiment to determine your preferences.
Use boiling water and allow your tea to steep as little as 3 minutes or as much as 6 minutes. The teas can be steeped at least 3 times and, depending on the steep times, as many as 5 times. For each of the following steeps, use boiling water and double the steep time. Also, consider blending the first steep with the following steeps to balance the tea; if you do not want to drink all the tea, store it in the fridge for wonderful iced tea.
Store in a dry place.
