• Jasmine Orchard Oolong Tea -  Creston Loose-leaf Tea

Jasmine Orchard Oolong loose-leaf tea - 50g

Low Caffeine - High Antioxident level

Cup Characteristics: Non-and semi fermented teas in perfect harmony, married together with orchard fruits.

Ingredients: Oolong tea - Green tea - Mango + Apple + Strawberry + Peach pieces - Safflower petals - Jasmine Buds

Prepare your tastebuds for something special. Oolong tea, as exceptional as it is on its own, is sublime when blended with flowers, fruits and herbs. Jasmine Orchard Oolong combines the fresh spring tea-taste of oolong with the etheral sweetness of green tea with jasmine petals, jasmine buds and a multitude of fruits from the orchards of the world.

What makes this combination so special?  The first component of the blend is of course the Oolong tea.  For those of you not familiar with this variety, what sets it apart from black and green teas is the fermentation process.  Oolong is said to be semi-fermented, unlike green, which is unfermented and black, which is fully fermented.  The process is something like leaving a banana out on the counter - green tea could be compared to a yellow banana, black tea to a blackened, over-ripe banana and Oolong somewhere in the middle.  As a result, Oolong shares some flavor characteristics of both - they are typically lightly green and floral on the nose with touches of orchid in the cup.

The next component of the blend is a green tea with jasmine petals and jasmine buds. Jasmine, in addition to imparting its luscious foral aroma, infuses the blend with exceptional depth and rich character. (It's no wonder the jasmine flower is so closely aligned with feelings of love throughout much of the Eastern world.)  Next there is added a mdley of orchard fruits - dried peach, strawberry, apple and mango. Each of these on their own is great, bursting with juicy flavo. Together they're sensational.

Finally safflower petals are added to brighten the blend and add a softherbaceous.

Hot Tea: Put 1 slightly heaping tsp of loose tea for each 7- 9 oz of water in th teapot.  Briefly infuse with freshly boiled water and then pour off. Re-infuse the tea and pour about 1 minute or longer to taste. Milk & sugar are not recommended.

Iced Tea (1L/QT): 6 slightly heaping tsp loose tea into teapot. Pour 1 1/4 cup boiling water on tea. Steep 5 min. Quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water. Pour into pitcher strainging tea. Add ice, top-up with cold water, garnish and sweeten to taste.
