Full leaf oolong from Yunnan Province
No. 6: There are 6 grams of gold in each Olympic Gold Medal.
For Western brewing, this tea can be brewed for single infusions using 3 grams of tea per 8 ounces of water and steeped for three minutes.
For gaiwan brewing, place 7 grams of tea leaves into 175 ml (6 ounce) gaiwan. Bring spring or freshy drawn filtered water to 190 degrees. Add enough water to cover the leaves and discard water after five seconds, this is to rinse the tea leaves. Fill your gaiwan to the top and let the leaves steep for 10-20 seconds. Set the strainer on top of the decanter and pour the tea out of the gaiwan with the lid slightly askew, without allowing the tea leaves to escape. Serve into small cups and repeat this process at least 4-5 times and notice how the tea leaves change in flavor over each infusion. Learn more about gaiwan service here.
