This tea has a wonderful peachy, fruity bouquet and a clean, sweet taste. Insects called leafhoppers chew the Eastern Beauty oolong tea leaves and help to oxidize the leaf. This results in a sweet, smooth tea.
Amount to use: 1 tablespoon of tea to 3/4 of a cup of water (5g tea to 178ml water, or 0.18oz tea to 6oz water.) This tea can be brewed 4-6 times.
How to brew:
Place 1 tablespoon (5g) tea in the teapot.
Add *208 degree F (98 C) water to the teapot to awaken the tea. Immediately pour out and discard the water. Finally, add water and brew 45-60 seconds.
*This temperature may be approximated by:
1) Heating water until medium bubbles form or
2) Removing a pot of boiling water from its heat source and letting it sit for 1 minute.
