Product Description

Details

This is a tea of many names. “Silver Tip Oolong” refers to the white, silvery edges of the leaves. “Champagne Oolong” is due to the sweet, Darjeeling-esque muscatel linger. Its signature flavor develops from the leaves being nibbled by Leafhoppers while the plant is growing. The insect sucks juices from the plant, causing the bush to react and produce compounds that, luckily, taste great and lend sweetness. The tea is grown at a low altitude in a warm climate specifically to encourage these insects. This tea is harvested in the summer and is fairly heavily oxidized, but not roasted. Its aroma is naturally fruity with a sweet tasting, bright reddish-orange liquor.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1.5
Infusions: 1-6

China Wuyi Oolong Tea

Grown in an organic tea garden within Wuyishan. Wuyi is categorized by elevation and those at the highest elevations are the most prized. Tea is the sustaining life for Wuyi mountain people. In making this tea, long stylish leaves are twisted sideways into strips and then pan-fired to stop oxidation. The leaves are baked in the final stages of processing to yield a dark brew with hints of smokiness and a distinct fruity flavor.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 2-5
