Orchid Oolong*:

This newly refined version, our long-popular Orchid Oolong is now made using premium quality Tie Guan Yin that has been fired before being scented with Chinese "Magnolia" (Yulan orchid) blossoms. The result is a gentle yet rich and intensely floral tea with the Ti Kuan Yin varietal's unmistakable aroma and taste. The almost fruity orchid flavor becomes apricot- and peach-like as the liquor cools. A superb tea you will find hard to forget.

We suggest steeping 3-5 grams of tea per 8 oz. of water at 70-80C for 1-2 minutes. Lower water temperature and lengthen steeping time to produce more floral character; raise water temperature and shorten steeping time to produce more intensity and full flavors. As always, adjust quantity of leaves, time and temperature according to personal preference.
