Taiwanese Jin Xian Oolong, grown in Nantou County, gently fired and rolled into tight spherical shapes. This tea has a delicate almost floral aroma, with a naturally sweet finish. .Because the tea is tightly rolled, it can benefit from a brief 'wash' to open up the leaves. Simply pour a first brew and leave to infuse for 15 seconds or so, then discard, and proceed to brew as normal.
Measure 3g per cup (250ml), add water 80-90º C, infuse for 3 minutes.
Measure 3-5g per cup (100-125ml), infuse in 80-90º C water for 1 minute. Subsequent infusions from 60 seconds gradually increasing the time with each infusion.
Made this way the tea can be brewed between 3-6 infusions.
I’ll happily admit that I am a convert to Bohea teas, Chris is an excellent purveyor of great tea and making it accessible and understandable for the uninitiated. I’ve tasted a few on my journey into tea-dom and this one is awesome. Light, refreshing, less floral than a pouching or gui fei but far more complex and satisfying. I drink it every day and switch to others occasionally just because all the other stuff is great as well.
Great taste a top easy drinking brew my fave so far
