Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 185°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 2-3 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 2-3 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.

Other notes: Jin Xuan Oolong was discovered in 1981 by “Father of the Taiwan tea” –Dr. Zhen Zhe Wu who was the former president of TRES (Tea Research and Extension Station). It took 21 years of researching & developing to perfect this tea strain. It was a big part of “re-creating the tea market” in the 1980s and Jin Xuan tea became very popular during this time. Since then Jin Xuan Oolong tea has become one of the main tea strains in Taiwan. The tea farming regions in Nantou and Chiayi counties are the most famous areas for growing lower elevation Jin Xuan tea.
