  • Qi Lan is another wonderful tea from the Wuyi Mountains

Qi Lan Oolong Tea - Organic


Product Description

Our Qi Lan is another wonderful tea from the Wuyi Mountains. Qi Lan is mild and sweet, but retains the roasted qualities of its mountainous counterparts.  This area has given birth to several of the most famous Chinese teas including Lapsang Souchong and Da Hong Pao. These teas get their signature roasted and woody flavours from the mineral content in the soil.  What sets this tea apart is its wonderful fruity aroma and flavours with a rich and nutty aftertaste.

Region: Wuyi Mountains, Fujian Province, China.

Other Names: Wuyi Oolong, 奇兰


Steeping Guide:

Teaware: Glass or ceramic Gaiwan

Amount: 3g /1½ teaspoons

Temperature: 100°c (212°F)

Steeping Time: We suggest that you rinse your tea leaves before enjoying them, simply add water to the leaves and discard. This wakes them up and they are ready to go. For your first steep, we suggest a 30-50 second steep. For the second steep 10 seconds is best, simply add 5 seconds to each of your next steeps. This will allow you to experience the full range of tastes the leaves have to offer.

*These steeping directions are for a traditional Gong Fu style tea, if you are brewing this tea in a regular cup we recommend steeping for 2 – 3 minutes. This tea can be steeped 4 times.
