For those craving something darker, but not a fan of the full black tea experience, we have the "Red Robe" Da Hong Pao Oolong. It's roasted, but not highly oxidized. It comes out smooth and rich, but without the harsh astringency of a black tea.
- Use 7g (≈1 tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
- Use 80°C/175°F water
- Steep for 3 minutes, strain leaves, and enjoy!
- Too strong? Take off a minute, or use 5g of leaf instead!
- Too light? Kick it up another minute, or use 10g of leaf instead!
