Ban Tian Yao Oolong Tea

Ban Tian Yao Oolong Tea

(rating: 5 out of 5)

Ban Tian Yao Oolong Tea is also another famous Wuyi Oolong tea. The name of this tea is special as it means half way to the sky. It literally means that this tea breed or cultivar is grown on a high cliff and it looks like it is hanging on the sky. Ban Tian Yao Oolong Tea has a good body, smooth and complex flavor. Ban Tian Yao Oolong Tea has been around since the 18th century but it is not widely known as the rest of Wuyi Rock Teas. Organically grown.

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 2 - 5 grams (1-5 teaspoons) full with tea leaves for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.


excellent wuyi oolong with classic notes and a sweet lingering aftertaste. for several minutes, the tea leaves are a mix of brown with some orange to the vein and stems of the leaves
