Reminiscent of hazelnuts, it is a dark, roasted style of oolong tea, which offers a full bodied and savoury flavour that lingers on the palate. This is a semi–oxidised tea, which is known for its rich character and pleasant lasting aftertaste. Often referred to by its common name Hong Wu–Long, this organic and fair trade Olong tea is sourced directly from the growing cooperative in south east China.
Place a heaped teaspoon (2 grams) of tea per cup (250ml) into a teapot or infuser. Add filtered water at 70˚c–80˚c and allow to infuse for 2–3 minutes. Strain the tea and serve. This tea can be steeped multiple times.
