Imperial Black Pearl Red Oolong - 50 gms
Imperial Black Pearl is a fine "red oolong" expertly crafted in Taiwan. The aroma of cinnamon and rose rises on the rinse, with complex notes of caramel, honey, cognac and sweet plum on the palate. The tea soup is a lovely amber with medium body.
Experiment with brewing temperatures - hotter temps (200-2005 F) bring out its spicy character. Start with 3-4 grams of tea with a brief rinse, then for first and second steeps, brew for 1 minute, adding 30 seconds thereafter.
