Orange Blossom - Loose Oolong Tea

  • Much as it's a near sin to begin by recommending a traditional tea for icing: one can't escape how easily this oolong's rounded, roiling taste suits itself to submission – and what better way to bring out its inner sweetness than by taking it for an afternoon visit to the refrigerator?

    Guests will delight at the complexly gardenial mix. From the moment that it's brought out; it catches the eye with a color scheme that belies the weight of the coming flavor. When enjoying with company; note the emboldened citrus notes as you share this toasty oolong. Showing a striking amber color, Oolong Orange Blossom is not a solitary tea drinker's cup usually. Rather it's bright image and full, warming flavor suggests the pleasures of company. And with oolong's continual rise in popularity among younger, newer tisanal tasters; this blend is sure to make a few holiday gift lists. What more could the tea lover in your life want? An evening's warmth or an afternoon's chilled time-pass. Oolong Orange Blossom is as intriguing as its name if not nearly as soft as it might suggest.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
