Organic Oolong 12 is colloquially known in Mae Salong - where this Thai tea was grown - as 'beginners tea' owing to it's soft, milky, light floral taste. Oolong 12 is perhaps the most commonly drunk tea in Thailand.

 


  • Extremely soft and smooth floral notes with milky overtones.
  • Soft, smooth and creamy with hints of florals and sweet fruits.

  • Longer & Less - for a European style of brewing Golden Oolong 17 I would recommend using: 

    Around 1 tsp (3g) of loose leaf tea per person into a pot of around 95º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 30 seconds) Infuse for around 2 minutes. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 1 minute each round. 

    Can be infused 2 or 3 times this way. 

    Shorter & More - for a traditional Asian (Gong Fu) style of brewing Golden Oolong 17 I would recommend using: 

    1flat tbsp (7g) of loose leaf tea with around 150ml of 95º water. (Allow freshly boiled water to stand for 30 seconds) Infuse for around 30 seconds. For subsequent infusions increase the time by 15-30 seconds each round. 

    Can be infused 5 or 6 times this way.
