Mountain Oolong, Spring 2019

The character of a pot of tea tells a story about the leaf it originated from. Good tea is a mixed blessing for tea farmers; in general, the harder the tea plant struggles to grow, the more flavorful and tempered the finished brew becomes. For this reason higher elevation with colder temperatures and thinner air produces outstanding leaf.

The Spring 2019 flush of our Mountain Oolong has arrived!  This tea brews beautifully at many temperatures. We found the floral and nasal flavors of this harvest to be pleasant.  Notes include satsuma blossom and hibiscus. Using higher temperatures reveals a more tropical fruit flavor, similar to bananas or plantains.  The finish is multi-layered, a real treat to explore.

Steeping Instructions:

Prepare 3 grams of tea leaf (slightly less than a teaspoon) per 100ml of water(about half a cup).

For the first two steeps, 92°c water for no longer than 60 seconds will provide plenty of flavor.  From the third steep onward it is fine to add up to thirty additional seconds per steep. This should provide about four re-steeps.  For larger vessels (teapots of over 500ml) re-steep potential is usually lower.
