Posted by Staff Writer on

Oolong teas come in many different varieties. Some are roasted with grainy or nutty notes, while others are known for their fruity flavors. It can be hard to choose the perfect oolong for making iced tea because of this variety. However, the majority of oolong teas taste best when consumed chilled, start experimenting.

This chilled oolong tea preparation method is a rejuvenating, semi-sweet beverage that is extremely simple to make. Oolong tea might be a better choice than black tea for chilled tea, even though black tea is typically preferred. This is especially true if you're looking for a healthy alternative to sweet teas.

For this recipe, two types of oolong teas are highly recommended. Oolong tea which is known as Oriental Beauty originates in Taiwan. It is produced from tender tea leaves so that oxidation begins as soon as they are picked, and it is greatly oxidized (typically around 70%). As a result, a variety of tea companies offer naturally sweet but bit sour tea.

Since Taiwan is regarded as the oolong tea capital by tea drinkers, it should come evident that the next suggestion, Wen Shan Bao Zhong is also from Taiwan. The mountain range is the source of this tea. Sweet, smooth, and floral, this less oxidized oolong is described as such. It is even referred to as a creamy taste by some drinkers.

At the point when drinks are iced, they will generally lose a portion of their pleasantness. Because the oolong used in this recipe is already naturally sweet, all you need to do to make the perfect sweet tea is add a little honey.

The most preferred type of tea for taste is oolong! A delectable rejuvenating drink of iced oolong tea can be made quickly using this recipe for an ideal morning or afternoon refreshment!
