As it is Oolong tea and have properties both of green tea and black tea, we recommend to experience your own method of brewing this tea. Because this particular Oolong is medium fermented we suggest to brew it at lower temperature than black tea, but higher than green tea. And it is a guidance only. Best practice is to find your own, favourite way of brewing.
Classic: 2 to 3 grams, 200 mills of water at over 90 C degrees, 3 to 5 mins depend on preferences. After you have finished brewing, remove the leaves out of the cup/teapot – if they remain in the water too long, they start releasing tannins. Tannin makes tea taste bitter, inhibits absorption of magnesium and iron which are necessary for the body to function properly.
Subsequent: 3 to 5 grams of tea, 80 to 100 mills of water over 90 C degrees, first brewing up to 35 second and each next about 15 - 20 sec longer.
All brewing tips is a guidance only. The best is experiment to find own way depend on preferences.
Tea bags: we do not provide Oolong tea with teabags. As this is leaf tea rolled into long curly leaves, or 'wrap-curled' into small beads each with a tail, it required a lot more space to uncurl and infuse tea soup than teabag can offer. Only one exclusion is Tie Guan Yin Oolong Black Oil Cut tea which is formed to tiny small beads with smaller tail.
But still remember: all our teabags are in 100% compostable. Make your own compost.
