Imperial Pearl Oolong


Taiwan. Winner of awards at the North American Tea Championship in 2011 and 2012. This rare brandy oolong has notes of molasses, honey and maple syrup. The dry leaf has a fragrance of ground red pepper. Hot water transforms the nose into something more savory and miso-like. A tea that is deep amber in color and pointedly sweet in flavor, sans astringency or bitterness. Hotter water and longer steeping times will brew a more complex and spicier tea. Lower water temperature and shorter steeping times will brew a sweeter tea. Suggested brew temp of 194-203°F. Can be brewed multiple times.
