Here are some guidelines for brewing Aged oolong tea. These are meant as a starting point only. Please adjust to suit your individual preferences.
- Brewing vessel: 150cc (5 US fluid ounces)
- 5 grams of tea leaves
- Water temperature: 85 - 90 C (185 - 195 F)
- Infusion durations: 30 seconds, 45 seconds, 1 minute, 1.5 minutes, 2 minutes, and 2.5 minutes
The taste of the brewed tea is affected by the water quality, water temperature, amount of tea leaves, type of brewing vessel and the duration of each infusion.
Here's a suggestion from John R. (see reviews): Rinse a tablespoon of aged tea in a quart of hot water for ONE MINUTE. Thoroughly drain the softened leaves and throw away the disgusting brew. Then steep the rinsed leaves in a quart of hot water for ONE MINUTE. Subsequent infusions with the same leaves can be progressively longer.
