Home : Oolong (Wu-long) Tea : Ten Lu Oolongs : Ten Lu Supreme

Ten Lu Supreme (Small 2.65 oz)

Ten Lu Tea is grown in Lushan, a mountainous area in Taiwan where the mountains are shrouded by fog and covered by clouds throughout the year. The environmental moisture is absorbed by the tea leaves which is ideal for Oolong. Because of the unique geographic area and specific selection of leaves, this is the highest quality of Ten Lu Oolong from the Lushan estate. The steeped tea has a yellow color matching its faint fresh scent. Once tasted, the tea presents itself with a fresh taste followed by a faintly sweet smooth aftertaste.

The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195F or 85-90C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor. For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times. Net tea weight is 2.65 ounces (75 grams).
