Steeping and Storage

Use 2.5 grams (1 teaspoon) of loose leaf tea per 6 ounces of water.  Steep with water ranging from 185 to 205 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes.  Can be re-steeped up to 6 times.  Balled Oolong’s are best enjoyed over multiple short infusions, as the ball unfurls throughout the steeps, different flavors are released along with the leaves.  If making iced tea, double the amount of tea leaves used and keep the time the same; sweeten while steeping and when done steeping pour over ice.

Keep in mind that these steeping instructions are merely a suggested starting point.  Everyone has different tastes and preferences and you can adjust the amount of tea used and the steep time accordingly.  If you would like your tea to have a stronger taste, add more tea leaves.  Conversely, if it is too strong, use less tea leaves.  It is quite fun to play with the temperature of the water and the steep times to bring out different tastes and textures in the tea!

Loose leaf tea should be stored in a cool, dark, and dry environment away from strong odors that the tea will most certainly absorb (do not store in the refrigerator or spice cabinet).  It is best to store it in an air tight container as this will reduce the amount of oxygen that interacts with the tea and thus preserving its life.
