Home : Oolong (Wu-long) Tea : Loose Dark Oolongs : Dark Oolong 5th Grade


Dark Oolong 5th Grade (4oz)

Ten Tea'sSM Fifth Grade Dark Oolong consists of quality oolong harvested from central Taiwan. Because Dark Oolong is baked longer than Green Oolong, 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 185-195F or 85-90C. 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. Net tea weight 4 ounces (113.4 g) and shipping weight 0.28 lb.
