Winter Harvest Green Oolong:

Brewing Suggestions

We rarely offer a winter harvest Oolong tea from Tiawan, let alone our most popular green style Oolong. However, this year’s winter harvest from the famed Fu Shou Shan region not only retains its trademark big mouth feel and almost chewy viscosity, it has hints of honey and wild flowers! The liquor is bright yellow and the finish is oh so sweet and long lasting. This is a tea that will stand alone and shine anytime you’re ready.

It would be wonderful paired with lighter meat or fish dishes as well. For those who wants to be different, brew this tea with hot water and wait for it to cool down. Pair it with a good vanilla ice cream or light peach desert. Enjoy!

Use approximately 5 grams of leaf per 8 oz of water and brew with water 90°C or 1 90°F (just before boiling). Infuse about 2 minutes, allow tea to cool off a little before enjoying. Always adjust time, water temperature, and leaf quantity based on your personal preferences. Like all good Oolong teas, the Imperial Green Oolong may be re-steeped multiple times by gradually increasing steeping time on each successive steeping.

I brew many types of green tea and the first time I brewed this tea I asked myself what so special about this tea. Then I brewed it at a little hotter temperature and behold a marvelous green oolong.
