Oolong Tea by Sunny Island Tea Co. Brown Bag Package

Oolong tea is the traditional tea of China’s tea connoisseurs. It is filled with multiple subtle flavors that are always a treat for the taste buds.
The preparation of oolong tea requires it to wither under the strong sun – making oolong the true Sunny Island tea.
With its leaves only partially oxidized, oolong tea’s flavor is of moderate strength (somewhere between black and green teas).
Oolong tea is probably the most beneficial tea, as well:

  • Oolong tea is rich in antioxidants
  • Oolong tea helps control the metabolism of fat in your body
  • Oolong tea promotes good dental health

Oolong Tea Brewing Instructions:

  1. Place the tea leaves into a teapot or teacup. Use 2 tsp of oolong tea for every 8oz (1 cup) of water.
  2. Bring the water to a rolling boil at 200°F (93°C).
  3. Add enough hot water to submerse the tea leaves and let it sit for a few seconds before pouring out the water.
  4. Add hot water and let the tea leaves steep for 3 to 10 minutes.

We recommend that you steep oolong tea several times from the same leaves. Unlike other teas, oolong tea tastes even better when rebrewed. Usually, you can steep the same leaves three to five times. According to Chinese tea masters, the third and fourth steepings produce the best flavor.
