Oolong tea, like black and green tea, comes from the Camellia sinensis plant.
There are many types of oolong tea but this particular kind is called Tie Guan Yin or 'the iron goddess of mercy'. Producing this beautiful organic oolong tea is not at easy feat however it is well worth the effort. This particular oolong is an aromatic brew, reminiscent of flowers, with a unique taste which is guaranteed to excite the senses. The tiny balls unfurl into a beautiful bouquet of leaves which fill the cup or teapot.
Brewing: Use 3 grams (1-2 teaspoons) of tea for 200 ml of water. Carefully pour water that is 80 degrees Celsius over the leaves. If you use a glass teapot or glass you can watch the leaves unfurl which is an awesome sight. Allow to brew for 1 minute. Oolong can be brewed over and over again with no loss to the flavour. In fact the best brews often come from the 3rd or even 4th seeping.
Therefore it is excellent value as a 100g refill bag could provide you with over 100 cups of tea!
