great taste and finish good for multiple steeps. I am a heavy tea drinker and use this as a daily drink
The leaves are a wonderful jade color. Named for this distinctively fresh green appearance, Jade Oolong is a small-leaf cultivar and one of the first oolongs harvested in the spring. The cup is floral & sweet. The harvest date of our lot is early April 2023. Lot #18.
Lot Notes. Grown along the coast of Fujian Province. Always a spring treat as this is the first oolong to market along with early green and white teas. Aromatic and striking in appearance.
Tea Facts. This oolong is a "Se Zhong" style - a blend of early spring leaves to ensure a consistent and much prized taste profile. It is one of the smaller leaf oolong cultivars grown in China. Its name - Jade Oolong - harkens from the light-green coloration of its leaves. Oxidation is typically 25% or less.
Tasting Notes. In the first steep the leaves open boldly to offer a light golden-green liquor color and a buttery floral aroma. Jade Oolong is a delicate, softly sweet taste and note of pear. Finish is lingering & refreshing. This tea goes very well with food.
Brewing Suggestions. Use 3-4 grams (a teaspoon) per 6-8 ounces of water; or serve it Gongfu style with 6-8 grams per 6-8 ounces of water. Use water at boiling temp, rinse the leaves briefly to "awaken" them; pour off and re-infuse for 2-2.5 minutes. Shorten your steep time if serving Gong Fu style. The leaves will steep multiple times.
