Gui Fei Taiwanese Oolong

New Mexico Tea Company
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 180°F
  • Timer 3 Min

Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 180°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 3 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 3 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

Other Brewing Suggestions

Infuse a tablespoon of leaves in a small pot for just about a minute. The tea is then re-infused and served 2 or 3 more times. Each infusion yields a different liquor and experience from the proceeding cup.

Label Art

Gui Fei roughly translates to Imperial concubine referring to the mature yet graceful and beautiful quality of the fresh tea leaves for this processing. Its flavor profile is dynamic, containing notes of cedar, stone fruit, and spiced honey.

Gui Fei Oolong made in a similar fashion to Oriental Beauty in that the tea leaves are bitten by small green insects. It is the insects biting the leaves that gives these teas their unique honey characteristic aroma and taste and also initiates the oxidisation process. The main differences between Gui Fei and Oriental Beauty are that it Gui Fei is grown in the central regions of Taiwan whereas Oriental beauty is grown primarily in the North. And secondly, Gui Fei is processed using traditional Dong Ding Oolong processing techniques. Also known as: King’s Concubine tea Farming Methods: Natural farming techniques. Hand picked. Production: Ball rolled Oolong. 40-50% oxidised. Lightly roasted
