HONEY OOLONG

Category Oolong, Taiwanese, Tea Shop

Honey Oolong is a style of tea that is partly oxidised. Dry leaves look somewhere in between a green and black tea. Their slow semi-oxidation and high quality varietals result in a flavour spectrum that makes oolongs the most complex and enchanting of tea styles.

Preparation

Put 5-7g of tea (a whole tea-scoop full) straight into the pot and pour in water taken off the boil two minutes beforehand (190-195 F). Brew 1½ minutes, then pour and serve. This tea will yield several more infusions, simply add 1 minute more each infusion and use water just off the boil.

$16 per 1.76 oz. package
