Fulu Oolong / Taitung Luye Oolong / Holo Oolong (福鹿茶)

  • $58.00


Available Options


Fulu oolong from Luye Township is named "Low-altitude champion tea", and grows on the southeastern coast of Taiwan, in the area which is quite isolated and protected from urban development. The region is rich in agriculture and scenic beauty offering the perfect environment for growing tea. Because spring is warmer on the eastern part of Taiwan than in the west, tea trees sprout earlier and the harvest season is also longer in winter. Comparing to other areas, tea farms in the eastern part of Taiwan can harvest two times more.

Leaves: delicately hand-rolled into small, green-brown colored balls.

Taste and aroma

Tea is highly aromatic and smooth. It produces a sweet infusion that is reminiscent of baked peach, toasted nuts and honey.

Aroma: A sweet biscuit aroma of dried fruit, baked peach and toasted nuts.

Liquor color: Amber

Brewing

You can use any kind of tea pot, but clay tea pot suits much better.

Warm up the tea pot with the boiling water, put 2-5 grams of tea, and pour small amount of the boiling water into the tea and pour out, then pour 225-250 ml of boiling water and cover tea pot for three minutes before serving.

Boiling temperature – 90-95°C (195-205°F).

You can use this amount of tea 3 to 4 times.

The tea leaves come unrolled for full flavor.

Additional information

This is one of the traditional ways of brewing. Depending on individual gustatory preferences you can you can vary brewing time from 35s to 5 minutes.

You can also use Chinese traditional way of brewing - spilling, using Gaiwan and brew for 3-5 second each time.

Please note, that it is natural tea with high content of active elements, including caffeine, and minerals and some unusual feelings could appear. In that case we recommend decrease quantity of dry leaves and brewing time.
