Water temperature for Oolong teas:
180 degrees to 200 is great for oolong tea. The water in the kettle should look like “Fish eyes”. The kettle can boil but then let it rest for 2 minutes before pouring.
Oolong leaves really enjoy multiple steeps. These leaves can be added directly into your cup. This process allows them to take full advantage of your cup and or pot and burst open. The more room tea leaves have to open, the better the taste and that’s what really is important after all.
