Pouchong Tea 1st Grade

Ten Tea's First Grade Pouchong consists of very fine quality and tender tea leaves from northern Taiwan. Pouchong along with Tung-Ting Oolong tea are among Taiwan's famous teas. Pouchong tea originated in Taiwan. The steeped tea from Ten Tea's First Grade Pouchong has a light green-yellow hue and faint fresh flora aroma. The taste is fresh and slightly floral with lightly sweet undertones. The aftertaste of this tea is a fresh clean sweetness which lasts a very long time after the sip.

The water used to steep this tea should be about 175F or 80C. Use about 1.5 tablespoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 mL) 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 the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose Pouchong tea. The teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times. Net tea weight 4 ounces (113 g) and shipping weight 0.29 lb.
