King’s 919 Dark Ginseng Oolong 3rd Grade
Ten Ren’s King’s Dark Ginseng Oolong Third grade consists of high 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 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 g) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 mL) 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.
