The unique flavor of Darjeeling Oolong Tea comes from genetic mix of the Chinese tea with Indian terroir. The complexities of climate, harvesting and processing play an important role too. It's lighter and less astringent than most black teas, but more layered and complex than most greens.
The difference in black, oolong and green tea leaves derive from tea fermentation. Flavonoids in the tea leaves combine with oxygen during the fermentation process. Darjeeling oolongs are semi-fermented. We are able to supply Black and Green Darjeeling Oolong Teas from different small teas estates in Darjeeling and Siliguri regions.
Darjeeling Oolong Tea is mostly of tangy dried fruit flavor and deep floral notes that linger like any great oolong . Most Darjeeling tea estates' Oolong teas are reminiscent of Oriental Beauty oolong.Greener oolong teas tend to have a rich, earthy taste, while darker varieties offer a more toasty flavor.
A Darjeeling Oolong Tea got from the First Flush will have a weaker taste compared to other flushes. First Flush will tend towards a more floral profile. On the other hand, the Second Flush Darjeeling Oolong Tea will be more full bodied and fruity in nature. It does not withstand the number of multiple infusions as other oolongs do and can be steeped for a minimum amount,approximately 3 atmost.
Note: Making a great cup of oolong tea means using the right amount of tea leaves for brewing. We recommend using 1 teaspoon of balled leaves or 2 tablespoons of loose leaf oolong for every 180ml of water. Use 2 grams of tea for every 180-240ml of water.
How To Make Darjeeling Oolong Tea?
- Rinse the cup or teapot with hot water to warm it.
- Put the tea infuser in the cup/teapot.
- Add a tablespoon of tea into the infuser.
- Pour freshly heated water.
- Steep for 3 minutes.
- Take out the infuser.
- Your tea is ready to serve and drink.
- If you steep it second time, leave it to brew for 5 minutes.
- Oolong tea is also often consumed in the West as an iced tea. Follow these same hot tea brewing techniques and then allow the tea to cool before serving.
Note: What happens if you brew oolong tea too long? Steeping your tea longer than the recommended times will make it bitter. Tea leaves start to release tannins when left in hot water too long and this results in a bitter-tasting tea.
