A Chinese Oolong. Big Red Robe, is one to try. Long leaf, mellow, pleasantly toasty.
Use 1 heaping tsp. of tea leaves (2-3 grams) per 8 oz. of water, 190 - 200 F. Steep for 3 - 5 minutes.
This tea yields multiple infusions.
For traditional Gaiwan brewing, increase the steeping time 30-45 seconds each infusion. The number of infusions you do depends on your unique preferences. So, go ahead, experiment, find your perfect cup!
Using a glass mug, teapot, or Giawan will allow you to experience the beauty of this tea as it steeps.
