Oolong Brewing Tips

Oolong Tea Brewing Tips

The better form of Oolong tea is the loose tea form. Tea bags are not as ideal because tea bags only hold dust and tiny pieces from the leaves.

Oolong Tea Brewing Accessories

  • A pot or kettle for boiling water
  • A tea pot for brewing tea
  • Tea cups for serving tea

Oolong Tea Brewing Steps

First pour cold water into the pot or kettle and bring it to a boil. It is not recommended to reboil water because water looses oxygen as it boils. Using reboiled water can affect the taste of the Oolong tea.

While waiting for the water to boil, put 1 to 2 teaspoons of Oolong tea into the tea pot for every 5 to 8 ounces of water depending on personal taste. It is a common practice to rinse the tea leaves with the first brew. Pour some water into the tea pot when the water temperature is right. After a few seconds of rinsing, dump the water out. Pour water in agian and let it sit for 1 minute or until the water turns golden yellow and serve.

You can reuse the same tea with new water for 3 or 4 more times or until the tea has lost its flavor. Oolong tea can be served cold as well.
