  • Taiwanese 'Four Seasons' Oolong, grown in Nantou County, gently fired and rolled into tight spherical shapes. This tea is an excellent entry level oolonng, with a delicate floral taste and an aroma reminiscent of lilly of the valley.

    Because the tea is tightly rolled, it can benefit from a brief 'wash' to open up the leaves. Simply pour a little hot water on and leave to infuse for 15 seconds or so, then discard, and proceed to brew as normal.
  • Western style:

    Measure 3g per cup (250ml), add water 85-90º C, infuse for 3 minutes.

    3 Infusions.

    Traditional Style:

    Measure 3-5g per cup (100-125ml), infuse in 85-90º 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 3-5 infusions.
