This much-loved oolong tea is an effective and economical way to give your sense of well-being a boost. In fact, it offers a whole range of potential health benefits.
Place of Origin
Nantou County, TAIWAN
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 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
As someone who doesn't normally drink black tea, this tea would convert me.Naturally malty and even creamy, something I haven't tasted before in a black tea.Fantastic flavour and would match brilliantly with milk and as a base for a chai tea.
As someone who loves the intense flavour of straight matcha and traditional genmaicha, I thought this blend was a bit odd just from reading the description.But after trying it wow. You get the traditional genmaicha flavour but the added dusting of matcha dials up the flavour intensity without overpowering it. Great for those whom matcha is a bit too overpowering and want something more for everyday drinking.
