109 King’s Oolong Tea ( 300 g )
Ten Ren’s King’s Dark Ginseng Oolong Fourth Grade consists of quality oolong, harvested from central Taiwan, that has been blended with a touch of ginseng to create an incredible aftertaste. The steeped tea has a light golden brown hue, mild roasted aroma with sweet undertones, the initial flavor of roasted chestnuts, and a light sweet and roasted aftertaste which lingers at the back of the throat.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195°F or 85-90°C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.
