How to infuse the Imperial Earl Grey Oolong Tea?
You can check this blog post for the classic Chinese way of infusing oolong tea. In a nutshell, it can be infused multiple times and each subsequent infusion liberates different aromas and tastes.
The first infusion has a mellow honey-like colour and light citrus and floral notes.
The second infusion is all about citrus. The lemony notes of the Pouchong oolong's second infusion match the bitter-sweet taste of the orange zests.
This oolong suits itself perfectly for a cold brew (you should cover the leaves with water at ambient temperature and leave for about half an hour). It gives a wonderful light green color with shades of gold. The taste is dominated by the refreshing citrus notes.
