Ti Kuan Yin Oolong Tea

$ 5.49 $ 5.99




  • This medium bodied Chinese oolong has undertones of dried fruits and a sweet golden finish. We call it Traditional Ti Kuan Yin because of the longer oxidation which was traditionally the way the tea was created in China. More recently Chinese Ti Kuan Yin has been fashioned after the greener, less oxidized oolongs of Taiwan and unfortunately this more traditional processing is overlooked.
  • Ti Kuan Yin Oolong Tea 

    Cup Characteristics: This is an intriguing and savory, full bodied, quality

    Infusions: Translucent brown-green. 

    Ingredients: Luxury Oolong tea

    A mellow floral aroma with slight roasted undertones, a brief smooth initial flavor, and a lightly sweet, fresh aftertaste which lasts long after the sip.
  • Hot Tea Method:  Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour less than boiling water into the teapot(180-183 degrees). Cover and let steep for 3-5 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
    Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of pour less than boiling water (180-183 degrees). over the tea. Steep for 3-5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
