Ginseng Oolong Tea

Description

Description

Ginseng Oolong Tea is renowned for its deliciously sweet and invigorating taste. Its taste has been compared to that of tie guan yin tea that has been combined with the aroma of ginseng.

To make our own Ginseng Oolong Tea our harvesters mix ginseng roots with premium-grade oolong tea leaves. The result is a rich and crisp tasting cup of tea with a sweet buttery aftertaste wrapped with distinguishable ginseng flavor.

It takes an experienced eye to spot the leaves used to make Ginseng Oolong Tea. They resemble moss-covered pebbles more than they do tea leaves.

Ginseng Oolong Tea also is known as Ren Shen Wu Long, Ginseng Oolong, Ren Shen Oolong or Ginseng Wu Long

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never to use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on so that the tea retains all its aromas.
