Oolong tea describes those partially fermented tea, falling between unfermented green tea and fully fermented black teas’. Many varieties of Oolongs are found in Taiwan and China. For the usual tea drinkers, apart from the teapot and the cups, there are many other tools that are required tools for making the perfect cup of tea.
Alternatively, you can put an infuser in the cup and brew a single serving directly. You can use any infuser, but a cup-shaped infuser works best because it allows the leaves to expand gradually. Many consider this the best way to drink Oolong, but only if you handle them with care. But there are some general tips that should be kept in mind while making that perfect cup of Oolong tea:
When the leaves gets rolled into balls, put in 2 teaspoons (10 ml).
If the leaves look mostly whole or broken, put 1 to 2 tablespoons approximately 15–30 ml.
If you have a measuring kitchen scale, you can measure out 2-3 grams of tea regardless of appearance.
Now lets have a look into the procedure of making Oolong tea:
1. Fill a kettle with water. Filtered water is usually a good choice rather than the distilled water
2. Heat water at 95º C
3. Put 2 grams of tea leaves into the tea infuser
4. Place the heated water into the tea infuser
5. Wait for at least 3 minutes
6. Press the button on the infuser
7.The tea flows down and the leaves remains at the top
8. Now pour the tea into the assigned cups or bowl whichever you are comfortable with
9. Have it after a whole day stress
Because at this temperature, the Oolong tea retains the tender aromatic chemicals. If your kettle does not have a temperature control, watch the surface of the water and remove it from heat when “strings of pearls,” are visible to the water surface.
