This tea comes from a Taiwanese farm in Fujian. Its dark green, curled leaves possess a vegetal fragrance, which after brewing give rise to a compact, pleasantly rounded taste with a subtly roasted note.
The origins of oolong are claimed in both China and Taiwan. Oolong is a semi-oxidized tea produced through a process including withering the plant under strong sun and oxidation before curling and twisting. The oxidation levels in oolong can vary from 8% to 80% depending on the production style of the tea master.
1 teaspoon per cup, brew for 2-3 minutes in water that is about 85-90°C then pour. Suitable for 5 infusions.
