Selecting Your Tea
Oolong tea is one of the most popular teas, due to its unique flavor. To get the most out of your oolong tea experience, it is important to select the type of tea that best suits your taste. Here are some popular varieties of oolong tea:

Preparing Oolong Tea
1. Heat some water until it just boils.
2. Place one teaspoon of tea leaves into your teapot per person.
3. Pour the just-boiled water into the teapot and cover it with a lid.
4. Allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes.
5. Pour the tea into cups and enjoy.
- If the tea is too strong, reduce the amount of tea leaves used.
- If the tea is too weak, increase the steeping time or the amount of tea leaves used.
- Re-steep the leaves for a second or even a third cup, though the flavor will be slightly weaker.
Oolong tea is a wonderful way to relax and refresh your mind. With the right tea leaves and correct preparation, you will be able to enjoy its unique flavor and aroma.
