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 Jasmine "Moli Hua Cha" Scented Green Tea

Jasmine green teas popularity in Asia parallels that of Earl Grey in the West. Moli Hua Cha is for the jasmine tea drinker that wants to have a green tea backbone, rather than the tea being a mere vehicle for the jasmine. This is a blend of 100% certified organic Chinese green tea and the fragrant flower petals of jasmine. The taste is sweet with floral flavor, which matches the full bodied green tea base exceptionally well.

Steep Time: 1-3 min
Water Temp: 170°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 1-3
