Preparation of Organic Dong Ding Oolong Tea
We highly recommend infusing this tea in the traditional Chinese method (gong fu cha) to best enjoy these leaves. Following this preparation you can use 7 grams of leaves (about 3 teaspoons) in a gaiwan of about 180 ml to obtain several infusions with different tastes. After a quick rinse of the leaves in water at 95°C, an initial infusion of 10 seconds can be made, after which, keeping the water at the same temperature, the time can be increased each time by 10 seconds compared to the previous infusion (10 – 20 – 30…).
This tea has a longevity of about 7 infusions.
For a classic preparation according to the Western style, we recommend 3 grams of leaves (approx. 2 teaspoons) in a 150 ml cup with water at 95°C for an infusion time of one and a half minutes.
The tea can be filtered for easier tasting and also the above brewing times are purely indicative so can be adjusted according to personal taste.
It is suggested during the tasting to try to let the tea rest in the cup for about one minute before drinking it in order to better taste its sweetness.
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
