Product Description

Details

Grown at an altitude of 1,100 meters in Central Taiwan. In making Strong Fire oolong only mature, hardy leaves are plucked. They are withered in the sun for a few hours to reduce moisture. Traditional rolling techniques (at least 13 different motions) are applied in conjunction with light roasting to achieve the optimum shape and flavor. The tea is aged and finally roasted at high temperature. The brew has a fullbodied texture with a toasty aroma and a bitter-sweet chocolate flavor.

Steep Time: 1-4 min
Water Temp: 200°-212°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 5-10

About Matcha Tea - Matcha is derived from shade grown tea leaves and stone ground into an ultra fine, green powder. The brilliant flavor of matcha is attributed to sweetness from naturally occurring sugars, savor from the amino acid L-theanine, and bitterness due to the antioxidant catechin. Health Benefits:
Naturally occurring antioxidants, polyphenols, EGCG, and L-theanine in matcha boost the immune system. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23072320) Naturally occurring antioxidants assist in reducing levels of triglycerides, cholesterol, and hepatic glucose content in diabetic individuals (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14518774) Naturally occurring L-theanine enhances alpha brain-wave activity, developing a calmer and more alert mind-state.
