Hehuan mountain oolong is a rare oolong tea from the biological tea farm in Mountain Hehuan (Hehuanshan), a 3,416 meters high mountain in Central Taiwan in between Nantou and Hualien.
Production of this oolong combines the traditional oolong tea making with production of Oriental Beauty tea, when buds and leaves are bitten by the Jacobiasca formosana (one kind of insect live in tea farms) and then the tea will have a special sweet taste. Because of this insect, farmers don’t use any insecticide. As a result, tea is totally natural and organic.
This is very special for its taste and limited kind of tea.
Leaves: delicately hand-rolled into small, green-yellow coloured balls.
Tea has rich floral and fruit flavors with light fresh fragrance
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 2-3 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 – 85-95°C (185-203°F). You can use this amount of tea 3 to 4 times.
The tea leaves come unrolled for full flavor.
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.
