Brewing Guidelines: Enjoy 1.5 tablespoons of Tranquil Tuesdays Phoenix Honey Orchid Oolong tea with one cup (about 8oz or 250mL) of filtered or spring water at 100 C/ 212 F. They recommend a quick tea rinse to awaken and open the tealeaves: pour the water over the tea, wait five to ten seconds, then dispose of the water. Next, steep the tea for up to fifteen seconds, lengthening the steeping time with each subsequent infusion. Take care as oolong teas can quickly become astringent from over-steeping. Experiment and adjust according to your own preferences and taste.
