Oolong Organic Dark Roast
Botanical Name: Camelia sinensis
Ingredients: Organic Roasted Oolong Tea
Roasted Oolong Tea undergoes post-production "curing" of the leaves and typically are roasted or baked at low temperatures for long intervals. The leaves are dried and fermented naturally before roasting, removing all moisture. This Oolong is not easy to produce and many tea roasters and producers will not attempt to produce it. This is an intensely aromatic brew that lingers on your taste buds.
Reminiscent of flowers, with an unmistakably pleasing taste that will keep you coming back for more.
Oolong Tea Brewing
White tea, Green tea, Oolong tea, Pu-erh, and Black tea are all from the same plant, Camelia sinensis. Oolong tea is produced by allowing the tea leaves to oxidize for a short time after picking. Oxidation is the process which makes the leaves turn dark on exposure to oxygen. Oolong is semi-oxidized; black tea is fully oxidized; and green tea is un-oxidized.
Instructions: Can be brewed like a loose leaf tea. Boil water (use at around 85-90°C) and add 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of water. Pour your water over the tea and allow it to steep for only 45 seconds to 1 minute. You can rebrew the same tea 3 to 4 times, increasing the brewing time by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping.
