Oolong Tea Bulk Premium All Natural by Uncle Lee's Tea
Uncle Lee's Tea - Oolong Tea Bulk Premium All Natural - 5.29 oz. (150 g)
Uncle Lee's Tea Oolong Premium All Natural Tea in Bulk contains anti-oxidants. Oolong tea (literally translated as "Black Dragon") is what is known as a partially oxidized green tea (camellia sinensis ), and has some of the qualities of both green tea and black tea. Uncle Lee's Oolong Tea in Bulk consists of high quality oolong harvested from the Fujian Province in China. Because Uncle Lee's Oolong is not baked as long as Dark Oolong, the steeped tea has a light golden hue, sweet flora aroma, fresh initial flavor, and a sweet floral aftertaste which lasts after the sip. The rich flavor and fragrant aroma of their oolong tea result from an oxidizing action called "withering." this process is done by tumbling the tea, or otherwise bruising the surface of the leaves. This allows the tea to soften, releasing enzymes that darken the tea leaves when exposed to air.
Oolong Tea is a world famous natural health drink that is loaded with antioxidants and thus, many health benefits. It is a natural fat emulsifier and has approximately 15 to 55 mg caffeine per cup depending on the strength of the brew.

The fresh water used to steep this tea should be about 185 to 195 degrees F or 85 to 90 C. Use approximately one teaspoon (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 8 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor. When preparing this tea, the leaves can be used multiple times, until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Each canister of Uncle Lee's Green Oolong Tea will yield approximately 50 to 75 servings.

Since this is just free tea leaves, I definitely reccommend a steeping basket, however, the flavor of this tea is unreal! I LOVE it. I normally will not even need to sweeten it depending on how long I actually let it steep. And it is a lot of tea for the price!I wholly reccomend you check this tea out. :)
I LOVE Uncle Lee's Oolong! It is a little more expensive than some, but a lot less than others. For the price it is an excellent tasting and very smooth Oolong tea.
