Organic Oolong Tea: China Oolong Bio
From China’s Zhejiang province, this organic oolong tea is low in tannin. Having long twisted leaf this full flavoured oolong has an attractive nutty aroma and is medium bodied, lingering, earthy, faintly foresty in the cup with a satisfying complexity. Use freshly drawn and boiled water, allow to cool a minute and infuse one teaspoon per cup for four minutes. Repeated infusions can be made, progressively, increasing the infusion time. Alternatively, prepare using the gongfu method.
“Wonderful aroma. I keep on coming back to this tea for its complex and ?nutty? aroma. If my tea supplies run low, this is the one I miss most. Probably shouldn’t but occasionally add a bit of this oolong to black china teas. Thanks Mr Grey”
“A well rounded and really enjoyable tea. Having tried many different Oolongs over many years, the China Oolong Bio is certainly the best we have found. We really enjoy the subtle and refreshing flavours. It is good to know this tea is certified organic and we do like the personal and prompt service from Grey’s Teas.”

The benefits of loose leaf tea
This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!
