The 2019 spring harvested high mountain Oolong has once again been selected from the famed Foshou Shan region, harvested at around 2600 meters, this make the Imperial Green Oolong one of the highest grown tea in our inventory. As always, production is small so hurry...
Our Imperial Green Oolong features exceptionally full-bodied textures, a silky mouth-feel, and deep layers of flavor. The finish is sweet and cleansing, complimented by sweet melon tones with hints of orchid and osmanthus flowers.
In order to showcase the floral and complex layers of flavor, good water is enormously important. We suggest 5-7 grams of tea per 8 oz of water. Steep with near boiling water for a minimum of approximately 2 minutes. Repeated steepings are recommended. This tea is also an excellent candidate for practicing traditional gong fu tea. As always, adjust quantity of leaves, steeping time, and water temperature according to personal preference.
