Rolled Chinese Green Oolong and Eluthero Ginseng Root
This oolong is from the Fujian Province of China, an area well known for it's teas. Rolled and dried into the recognizable little balls that oolong is often made into, this blend is mixed with our eluthero ginseng root. The ginseng is light, with an almost lingering sweetness that is tempered by the gentle bite of the ginseng. A good tea to give you that extra boost you might need in the early afternoon, this blend is a favorite of ours.
Hot Tea: 1 heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7 to 9oz./200 to 260ml of water in your teapot. Pour freshly boiled water over the tea, leaving to steep for 3 to 7 minutes.
Optional: Add milk or milk substitute and sweetener to taste.
Iced Tea: (Makes 1QT) Add 6 heaping teaspoons of loose tea into a teapot. Pour 1 ¼ cup/315ml of boiling water over tea. Steep for 5 minutes, then quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water. Pour tea into pitcher, straining out the tea leaves. Add ice, top up with water, garnish and sweeten to taste.
For another method, try cold brewing your iced tea. Fill your serving pitcher with cold water (1QT), and then add in a bag of roughly 5 to 6 teaspoons of tea. Leave in the refrigerator over night and in the morning, fresh cold tea is waiting for you!
