Taiwan Popcorn Oolong Tea
Smooth and sweet oolong, with a buttery fragrance. The aroma is a light touch of grassiness reminiscent of green tea, mixed with a rich, creamy overtone. This tea is subtle with astringence, only noticeable toward later infusions. The sweet taste lingers in the mouth long after the bottom of the tea cup.
Steeping in a Cup
Infuse 1 heaping teaspoon full of popcorn oolong tea in one cup of hot water, 90 to 100 degrees celsius ( 200 Fahrenheit). Cover and wait at least 4 minutes for each infusion. Filter bags or meshes are not necessary; the tea leaves tend to stay at the bottom of the cup once unfurled.
Steeping with a small Tea Pot
Fill the pot with about 1/4 full of tea leaf, and apply water around 90 to 100 degree celsius (200 Fahrenheit).First infusion should be 90 seconds, second around 60 seconds, subsequent infusions should be progressively longer. Taste lasts at least 4 infusions.
