potOolong Tea Leaf Brewing and Preparation Directions

One of the easiest and most popular ways of preparing Oolong Leaf is to brew a tea.

Oolong Tea Infusions by the Cup

Boil pure water (spring water is our favorite) and infuse fresh Oolong tea leaf. Use 1 teaspoon/1gm of Oolong leaf for an 8oz/250ml cup. Infuse the leaf for about 1 to 3 minutes.

Oolong Brewing Directions:

  • Water Temperature: 140-212F = 60-100C
  • Leaf Amount: 1-2t = 1-2.5g
  • Water Amount: 6-8oz = 175-250ml
  • Infusion Time: 1 to 3 minutes

Oolong Connoisseur's Tips: try shorter infusion times, with multiple infusions of the same leaves. Each infusion has it's own merits and unique tastes/aromas.

Cleaning the Travelers Feet: an Asian Tea Ceremony Ritual: Residue is a normal by-product of whole leaf infusions. Try rinsing the leaves for 30 seconds and discarding this first infusing. Referred to in Asia as Cleaning the Traveler's Feet.

Oolong has a delicate flavor that is easily compromised by chemical additives in tap water. To enjoy the best cup of Oolong possible, use only pure water.

Oolong Tea by the Pot

Oolong by the pot ~ use a screened pot or tea strainer. Make sure to leave plenty of room for the leaves to expand. Add a teaspoon of Oolong for each 8oz/250ml of water. Add an extra spoon of tea for the pot. Cover the leaves with boiled water and rinse for a about 10 or 15 seconds. Pour off the rinse water to remove any residue or dust. Cover the leaves a second time with boiled water and steep for 1 to 5 minutes.

Oolong is also great served chilled. Make a pot in the morning and place it in the refrigerate to enjoy all day long in the hot season.

Oolong Sun Tea Recipe

Use a clear glass jar and add a teaspoon of Oolong for each 8oz/250ml of water. Cover the jar and place in direct sunlight for 1 to 2 hours. Enjoy your Oolong sun tea as is or chill and serve over ice.

Oolong Herbal Tea is great chilled.

Place your infused tea in the refrigerator or pour over ice. Now you can enjoy drinking healthy and delicious tea even in warm weather.
