Dry storage recommended (comes in a sealed, zip-lock bag. BPA-free)
Brewing & Enjoying
This tea can be steeped up to five times, each time at 85-95 degrees Celsius. We suggest using filtered water. Yixing clay pots are traditionally used to brew oolong (see point 7 of this post. You can read more here too).
The first brew should be between one and one a half minutes to allow the leaves to unfurl and provide optimum flavour.
Brews two and three can be shorter–try 20 and 40 seconds.
Brews four and five should be lengthened again as the flavours begin to lose their punch. Try one minute and two minutes respectively.
This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.
We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.
I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.
It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!
This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried
Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.
The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description
