Ginger Peach Oolong
Zhi House Blend Ginger Peach Oolong is as exotic and luxurious as it sounds.
One of our favorite blends, Ginger Peach Oolong is designed to appeal to all your senses. Our top quality Shui Xian Oolong, natural ginger root, and natural juicy peach pieces combine to create a superbly refreshing, aromatic, and robust flavor experience.
The ginger gives a hint of bright spiciness while the peach adds a touch of sweetness and softness. Ginger Peach Oolong is an outstanding drink, if we may say so ourselves, that also produces a jaw-dropping iced tea. Invite your friends, they'll love you for it.
This tea holds up fantastically to multiple steepings!
A little more about our blending base for Ginger Peach Oolong. We love the full flavor of the Shui Xian (water sprite), a 70% oxidized oolong leaf. This Ginger Peach has the pronounced robustness of our Wu Yi rock tea which provides a solid base for the ginger and peach to shine.
A great Shui Xian should support multiple steepings and have a nice, round body with a long smooth finish. You'll note that Ginger Peach Oolong has all these qualities with a distinct floral character that comes through as well. Ginger Peach is like a fine wine, the flavors are robust yet refreshingly fruity at the same time. Ginger Peach is the best thing for ginger lovers and the peach is something to remind you of long hot summer days.
Water: 195°F | Leaves: 2 heaping tsp per 12 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes
Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time.
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
