Superfine Pouchong is TenRen's finest Pouchong tea. This grade originates in Wen Shan, a township in the Pinlin region in Northern Taiwan, which is famous for producing the world's finest Pouchong tea. The hills in this region are often surrounded by fog and clouds all year round. The taste is very fresh with floral and sweet undertones. The aftertaste is freshly sweet and lingers on the palate.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 175°F or 80°C. 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.
